Model of 1911 US Navy

The gun’s serial number tells us that it was built by Colt in 1918, part of a batch made for the US Navy.
It appears to be in original condition, and as one can expect from a firearm this old, the finish is quite worn. The barrel has a surprising amount of rifling left.

If this gun could tell its story….

    That looks like the .45 I qualified on in ’88!

      The frame and the slide do not match. Slide is a Navy Colt from 1913 showing the Rampant Colt in a circle while the pistol frame serial dates back to an Army Colt 1911 from 1918.
