    Help Identifying Colt 1911 marked COLT AUTOMATIC CAL .SS LONG RIFLE on slide.

    Help Identifying Colt 1911 marked COLT AUTOMATIC CAL .22 LONG RIFLE on slide.

    Seeking help determining what this pistol actually is. Frame is marked United States Property No. 7012** on right side of frame. Has a small "60" on the front top of the Y on the trigger guard right side. Has the marking of "W" with a "T" overlayed in a circle between the slide stop and magazine release.

    The left side of the slide has: COLT'S PT F.A MFG CO.HARTFORD, CT U S A with patenting dates from 1897 to 1913 under the other letters.

    The slide has no other marking that I can find. There is no "ACE" markings at all. Is this a pre ACE model? Any help is appreciated.

    The receiver you describe is what is commonly called the Colt "Transition", with 10,000 being purchased in 1924. The 60 on the right side of the trigger guard is the number identifying the Colt employee that assembled the pistol. The mark on the other side is the initials of the person in charge of accepting the pistol for the U.S. Military, Capt. Walter T. Gorton. The G encircles the WT.

    Pictures would certainly help, but sounds like you have a post WWII conversion unit on the pistol.

    Didn't the conversions say something about "conversion unit" or something like that on it? This firearm was owned by an OSS Officer but I do not know if that plays any role in figuring out what it is. I am new here. How do I post photos?

    The receiver you describe was made in 1924, and the OSS was organized in 1942. Unless defaced, the receiver has UNITED STATES PROPERTY above the serial number, so no secret where the pistol came from.

    Without pictures no way of knowing what type of conversion unit you have.

    Posting pic's can be done 2 ways. You can link a pic that you have previously uploaded to a photo hosting website like photobucket (photobucket is free) or you can upload a saved pic from your computer. I'll assume you want to upload a pic that you have saved on your computer. If not let me know and I'll go through the procedure to upload pic's from a photo hosting website.
    Uploading from your computer:
    -Click the "Go Advanced" icon at the bottom of the quick reply box.
    -Under the line where you type the title of the message and above the area you type the message you click the paper clip icon (attachments)
    -Manage attachments box opens up.
    -Click the "add files" icon.
    -In the small box that pops up click "Select Files".
    -Locate the photo you want.
    -Click on the photo you want and then click "Open".
    -The picture will appear in the box where you type the message.
    -Type what ever message to accompany the photo and click "Submit Reply".

    More info:
    If you right click on the picture a menu pops up that allows making the picture larger or smaller and allows centering the picture or to the right of left.
