Well, it's KINDA a Colt....
« on: April 12, 2018, 06:21:49 AM »
Colt's done a lot of odd things over the years, and this is one of 'em IMO.....

Argentina - who couldn't make up their mind WHO to support in WWII (and ended up being home to MANY Nazi ex-pat's) - somehow managed to get Colt to help them put a factory together to make guns, including a full-on copy of the venerable 1911.  This is one of them - and it doesn't look to have been shot much.  It's one of the rarer ones, built for the Argentine Air Force and bearing the original black oxide finish. 

BTW - we got in a TON of milsurp's (including some VERY rare/unusual ones) last week from the same estate.  They've now been checked into inventory and are available for sale.  There's also a number of other guns - everything from .22's to rifles and Browning A5 shotguns - so it would be worth a trip by the shop (Wainwright's Firearms, Inc., 201-1 Deborah Drive here in New Braunfels) to check them out!

This one's #70 for the collection.....
