Colt 1911 .455 Eley British Contract

Very good example of a rare contract 1911 Colt supplied to Britain in WW1and chambered in .455 Eley. Its serial number puts it in the range of 10,500 Colt 1911 pistols sold to the RAF in 1917/18. It carries the crossed pennants proofing mark along with the Enfield inspector mark of a crown over T9 over E. There is about 60% of the original finish remaining. There are also some minor marks and these are clearly visible in the photographs. The grips are original, as is the dual-tone magazine, stamped CAL . 455, ELEY, on its base. The barrel, which has a clean bore, is original too. The action is smooth and tight.
