Colt 1911 serial number dating Sexywebcamvids
This John Browning patent gun, Model 1911, was so named for the year it was officially adopted for use by the United States Army.
I like them all, but the Series 70s are my favorites.I wont' be much help in dating one of these guns after 1976.As always, I suggest you call the Colt Archive at 1-800-962-COLT. sometimes, if you enter a serial number, it will give you multiple hits. but I heard from 1911 forum that colt gets a lot of calls for this. A car pulled over, driver rolled down the window and actually asked, 'hey, how do you get to Broadway? Just a plain ol' lightweight commander with pach grips I picked up on the for sale board here. That will make a great carry piece for you, congratulations. People that have them generally hang on to them for life, or they're extremely beat up from many years of carrying. I've been paying attention to the for sale board here, and browsing gun shops, even asking 'gun people' i know if they have one they'd sell, for almost THREE years. One the slide, bushing, and barrel were so rusted I felt like they were going to crumble apart. Make you a deal, I'll PM you the second I find another one of these for sale, you PM me if you see a WC commander for sale! Mine only has one zero after the 'CLW', so if they go sequentially, I guess it would have to be after 1978the database is not complete. Reminds me of the time years back when I was walking around the streets of New York (my home town). Can not figure out why the pics are upside down, they show correctly on my desktop, but here you go. I assume you've had the slide off and there is no firing pin safety? The hardest to find Colt 1911's for my modest collection has been nice condition pre-80 Series LW Commanders.
