COLT MODEL 1900 SIGHT SAFETY
SN 1312

The Model 1900 Colt Automatic is the first automatic pistol produced by Colt Firearms.  It was primitive in nature and the result of Colt's decision to produce a prototype design and develop it later.  There were approximately 3,500 made and are routinely called "Sight Safety."  The gun incorporated a sight safety mechanism which was soon dropped with the development of the 1902 Automatic.  The Model 1900 has no hold open device and certainly no satisfactory safety device.  It was made with wood grips and a nickel plated magazine which has an 1884 patent date on the bottom of it.  This gun has a matching numbered slide and correct magazine.  The gun has been professionally refinished and I do mea Professional.  The markings have NOT been enhanced and are still strong.  The finish is the original Colt high luster charcoal blue with cased hardened hammer and safety and temper blued small parts.  It is quite impressive.  It is accompanied by a factory letter which indicates it was shipped on December 3, 1900 to Simmons Hardware Company, St. Louis, Missouri.  Price $6,750.  SOLD!!
