1969 Vintage Colt 1911 45 ACP Pistol with 5″ bbl, one, unmarked blued 7-round magazine, Elliason Rear sight, walnut grips, and adjustable trigger. Barrel Marked COLT 45 AUTO M.M. Gun Appears to have been fired very little, and then stored for decades. Excellent Bore, Crisp Grip Checkering, Excellent fit and function. There are a few light finish freckles on the front left and right sides of the frame, the front strap, and areas of finish bubbles where the grips meet the frame. Both bottom grip screws were in contact with the box and should be cleaned. Overall feels like a time Capsule, and grades VG-EX In Correct Period Box with papers. Box does have a number written on the outside in pen, but it does not match the gun. It could be a stocking or dealer number. We cannot determine if Colt was hand-writing serial numbers on these boxes for the Gold Cup Guns at this time. Serial: 35279-NM
