COLT 1908 380 EXCELLENT HIGH POLISH FINISH
$2750
Item ID #2168

This pistol was made in 1913. It is much nicer in person than in my pictures. Bore is excellent with no issues. Action is smooth and tight. It works perfectly. Grips have no damage. Not sure these are correct for the pistol. There was a transition which occurred close to this serial range. Markings are clear and original. Magazine is full blue, round top, and pinned. It has CALIBER 380 on the plate. A very high percentage of the original polished blue finish remains. There are scratches which show up in the polished finish. You will find some high edge wear. The only flaking is on the left side behind and above the serial number. It is a very small area. Usually the condition of the front strap, back strap, and the underside of the pistol is a good indication of the overall condition of these pistols. Take a good look at the pictures showing these areas and will get a real good idea as to the overall condition. The small parts retain their fire blue. You will like this pistol. You don't see many of the high polish blue pistols in this condition. It will make a great addition to your collection.
