COLT MODEL 1900 SIGHT SAFETY
ARMY SECOND ISSUE TRIAL GUN

This is one of 200 2nd Army Issue US Trial Guns.  It has a factory letter that indicates it was shipped to Springfield Armory on January 11, 1901.  Most of these guns were sent to the Philippines for trial.  This gun has strong markings, good sound grips, a matching numbered slide and the correct nickeled magazine with the patent dates on the bottom.  This gun has been converted from sight safety to standard sight by the Colt Factory.  During the period of use, you could send these guns back to the factory and have the sight safety removed and a standard sight installed.  The gun has been professionally refinished to the highest possible level with an attention to detail that is quite extraordinary.  The finish is as close to the original Colt charcoal blue that I have ever seen.  The gun has no replaced parts or repairs, just a beautiful refinish.  A very rare, early Colt Automatic.  SOLD!!
