Colt Service model ACE WWII 1945 Original .22 LR SM 8782

NO RESERVE >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>$.01 Offered is an excellent 1945 Vintage Colt SERVICE MODEL ACE .22 LR pistol. The serial number is SM 8782 and the year of production is circa 1945. This is an excellent all original Service Model Ace that is a bit of a Mystery Pistol. There are no inspection initials or proofs on the pistol and there never were any applied. We called COLT ARCHIVES to get a research letter because the pistol is in such great original condition. We were informed by The Colt Research Department that there is NO records available at all for serial number SM 8782. So either this one slipped through the cracks in the records department, or perhaps was an employee purchase or possible "lunch box gun" we don't know for sure. What we do know for sure is that other than the never applied final acceptance proofs, it is a near MINT ORIGINAL condition example and all correct for a 1945 era Service Model Ace. Looks to have been fired very little and we rate the original Colt War time finish at 97%. Mint bore and perfect mechanics. Excellent original Coltwood grips. Original all blue SERVICE MODEL MAGAZINE. If you collect high condition Colt 1911's and the ACE variations, they just don't get better or more interesting than this particular Service Model ACE.

Offered at no reserve. Please look at all the pictures and email any questions or for more pictures. We are a brick and mortar store located in Central PA. Satisfaction guaranteed.

We reserve the right to re-list this item if the auction site goes down within 24 hours of the end of the auction. We are registered with the California DOJ and will ship there.
