This firearm is from the collection of Karl Woerner. Karl Woerner has been a top competition Bulls Eye shooter and lifelong collector of fine firearms. Mr. Woerner's father came to the United States from Germany before WWII and joined the US Army where he fought against three of his own brothers in the war. Karl Woerner also served in the US Army, afterwards working for IBM and John Deere. After retirement, he worked as a historian where he shared his vast knowledge of history and firearms. Mr Woerner is a competitive shooter with a history most shooters would dream of having. He went to Camp Perry 31 years, captain of 3 Virginia State hard ball winning teams, and made Camp Perry's President's 100 ten times. The awards and trophies in Mr. Woerner's gun room are too numerous to list. His firearm collection reveals a lifetime appreciation of top notch competition pistols and RARE historically important items. Karl Woerner is known as Perry Shooter on the Gun Broker forums where he is a valued participant and irreplaceable member.

  • Manufacturer: Colt

  • Model: National Match 1911

  • Action: Semi Auto

  • Caliber: .45 ACP

  • Bore: Nice

  • Barrel Length: 5 inches

  • Finish: Blue

  • Grips/Stock: Checkered Wood

  • Notes: This is a Colt 1911 National Match from an Argentine Naval Contract made in 1941. It is chambered in 45 ACP and has a good bore with no rust or pitting. The barrel is 5 inches long with a great bore.

    It has the factory letter showing it was 1 of 250 in a shipment to The Argentine Naval Commission in 1941. This pistol is one of the first to have a Swartz Safety. The numbers on the frame and slide match.

    The action is nice and strong and the finish is original. This pistol has the hardened slide nose as most all 1941 and prior pistols do, which will show a line in the finish that starts about where the dust cover ends. It really doesn't show in the pictures, but you can see it in person. This is a well cared for pistol with only minimal handle type signs of wear for its age. The grips appear to be original checkered wood. It comes with one factory mag. Check out the pictures and you will see this is a fantastic find. This can ship directly to your C&R where legally allowed.

    Please ask your FFL to also send their tax ID along with their FFL for transfer.
