    Information on a Army colt model 1909

    I recently picked up a Colt US Army model 1909. The left side of the barrel is marked .45 D.A. . The top of the barrel is marked Colts PT FA MFG CO. HARTFORD CT. USA PATD AUG. 5 1884, JUNE 5 1900, JULY 1905
    underside of the barrel is marked UNITED STATES PROPERTY, the right side of the frame back by the hammer is marked RAC. There is a lanyard ring on the butt and the serial number is 452XX. The grips (stocks) ar faux stag horn.
    It shows moderate wear with some rust and light pitting.
    Any idea as to the manufacturing date and value.

    Thank You,
    Terry

    Welcome to the forum. No takers, so I'll venture 1911. For future reference you can look here http://www.coltforum.com/forums/show...ge=0#Post39597 but these are listed as New Service models of which it is a variation. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Welcome to the Forum!

    Love those New Service revolvers in every variation. Those ol' 1909's will shoot really well too.

    Even with the finish condition you describe and the incorrect grips the Model 1909 should be worth at least $500. One might obtain a bit more than that. The Model 1909 is of interest to both Colt collectors and U.S. military arms collectors and there aren't many of the revolvers to go around. You might wish to obtain some grips that would properly fit the Model 1917 Colt to give your revolver a more 'period' appearance. Mind you they won't be correct as the Model 1909 grips possess the RAC stamp on them. As I recall Rinaldo A. Carr was the inspector. Others may correct me if I've goofed.

    I've got a Model 1909 serial numbered 41754 so our revolvers are "distant kin".

    Here's a shot of the Model 1909 with a pipsqueak Colt New Pocket.
