 I am in the process of selling on Gun Broker some hand guns that are part of my fathers estate and are being sold to help settle it. Four of these guns are being auctioned at the same time and I am doing the best I can to describe and show pictures so that there will be no misunderstandings. These are all modern guns although three of them are certainly collectable and the fourth (1911) could be considered by some to be collectable as well. The other weapons are:

Colt 1911 w/Kart Arms
22LR Conversion

.45 Colt SAA

.38 S&W Safety Hammerless

Please take a look at my other auctions for a complete set of photos and description of each one.

Please remember that these handguns are subject to very strict regulations and before bidding make sure that you are legally able to own and possess firearms in your state and that you either have a Federal Firearms License or have someone with a FFL that you can have this item shipped to.

What is included in this auction.

1 - Colt U.S. Army Model 1917
.45 Cal. Double Action Revolver

Matching Serial numbers on the cylinder and the frame and the grips. The serial number is on the inside of both grips and it is hand written. Given the appearance of the gun as well as the grips I believe that they are original to the gun but I cannot guarantee it.

I took this gun to a dealer who specializes and is very knowledgeable about hand guns of this era. He gave me assurances that this Colt is completely original including the finish. At first I thought that someone had taken a piece of steel wool to it or had gone after it with a wire wheel but he explained to me that when the Army was trying to cut costs that Colt resorted to reducing the finish on the piece from a smooth blue to a brush finish to reduce labor costs and as such be able to reduce costs to the Army. Please take a look at the pictures that I have provided. All stampings are clear and legible the prancing horse on the left side is clear and clean.

There is some areas on the gun that have browned with age but there is no major rust and the gun operates smoothly and cleanly.

The barrel shows very little wear and the cylinder shows very few scratches from use.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me by email or phone. If I am not in please leave a message and I will return the call within a reasonable time.

Good Luck and Good Bidding, John

I seem to have gotten some conflicting advice on pictures of serial numbers. A local dealer told me to X out the last two digits because all of the necessary info could be gotten from the remainder. This was also advice given to me from a couple of GB users however others have taken me to task, asking if I have something to hide or if I suspect the arms to be stolen. This is interesting because I see other sellers here doing the same thing. I don't know what is correct but I do know that it is too late to change the pictures.

If there is some reason that you as a potential bidder feel the need to have the last two digits of the serial number before bidding just email me or call and I will be glad to supply them to you.

If anyone has any questions about any part of my auction or the description of the firearm up for sale please take a moment and contact me. I am very flexible in most areas and if there is information that you need or arrangements that you need to make just don't hesitate to ask. If I can help I will.

Contact me with any questions either by phone or email before bidding please.

  Before placing this auction I did some research through the GB discussion boards and the consensus seems to be that I should allow a three day inspection period. I have decided to agree to this but only  on the following conditions. It must be shown that I have misrepresented the gun in some way or the gun proves to be unusable due to damage in transit.
Once you have received and taken possession of the item in the listing it is your responsibility to have the firearm fully checked out before arming and discharging the weapon. I have done my best to describe the item fully and as completely as possible. I have had each firearm checked by a licensed gunsmith and any problems noted in the description.

This is a
NO RESERVE Auction

The Bidding will start at $1.00, or less, and the HIGHEST bidder wins.

I believe in the absolute auction format. Start as low as possible with NO RESERVE and let the market determine the price.

I believe in the honesty of online bidders but will do whatever is necessary to protect myself from those who seek to abuse the system. All buyers must adhere to all necessary local and federal laws pertaining to the owning and using of firearms.

Some people seem to think my disclaimers are because of some liberal bent. It might be self preservation.
