US ARMY 1924 COLT TRANSITIONAL 1911A1 MINT!

In 98% original unmessed with condition, we have a top condition example of a US Army Colt 1924 Transition model, the very first of what would be known as the model 1911a1 pistol.  Initially called the “improved model 1911”, the nomenclature was changed to model 1911a1 in May of 1926. Today, collectors refer to this pistol as the 1924 transition model.  There were 10,000 of these pistols produced and this one was made in the middle of the run.  This pistol is factory original and correct as per Clawson and it does have the “k” marked barrel and the bore is mint.  It was shipped from Colts to Springfield Armory on June 5, 1924.  This is a top condition example and it is rare to find these pistols in original condition let alone this crispy.  Most of them were lost during WW2 or rebuilt after the war so this is a real find.  Colt made 400,000 pistols during the second World War and only 10,000 of this model 1924 Transition were ever made, so this is an incredibly tough gun to locate, especially this crisp.
