COLT MODEL 1900 SIGHT SAFETY
U.S. TRIAL GUN
SERIAL NUMBER 1558

This is a Model 1900 Sight Safety, Second Army Issue, U.S. Trial Guns.  Only 200 of these guns were made for the U.S. Government.  They were sent into the field as trial guns.  Most went to the Philippines.  They are a critical step in the development of an acceptable automatic pistol for the U. S. Army.  The information gained from the trial utililizing these guns, led to the development of the Model 1902 Military.  From there, the progression of the development moves to the 1907, the 1909, the 1910, and eventually the time honored 1911.  The lessons learned at each stage of development were eventually incorporated into the 1911.  As a test gun, it is truly rare.  There is plenty of blue mixing with light patina, the gun having been well cared for and moderately used.  The gun is properly US marked and will letter shipped to the United States Ordnance.  It has a matching numbered slide, correct second issue grips and nice nickel mag with the patent date on the bottom.  It is in an original, unaltered sight safety configuration.   P.O.R.  SOLD!!
