Colt 1911 Government all original manufactured in 1915, including original lanyard magazine and grip panels . . . and sent to Britain for service in WWI ! British proof marks on slide, frame and barrel. I can't stop fondling this girl. Fit is excellent does not rattle and what I would expect from the hand-fit quality of the day. I'm done

Flipped the1936 RC S/42 Mauser K98k I got last month (I didn't need two Obendorfs), and used the proceeds towards this one. 1937 BSW (Berlin-Suhler-Waffen), rarest of all makers with only 60,000 pieces from 1936-1939 when BSW was folded into Gustloffwerke. Next Lowest is Erma at 250,000 from 1935-1941.

By some miracle the stock is also BSW; e/4, as are a couple of other pieces. Added capture screws from my stash and an Israeli sling. So this is loaner #6 for my reenactment group. The crate I made last month has room for 2 more. Will be chasing down 3 more makers to complete the set of 10; Erma, DOU, and Steyr.

For those with sharp eyes, I did edit the spelling mistake on the crate.
