    Thank you for all your work. It is much appreciated by all of us. Thanks, Joe
    Unless the missing serial numbers have been found, the serial numbers jump from 114554 to 139151. Sorry I couldn't help.

    You might contact Colt to see if they have it.

I am aware of the additional number on the frame when you swing the cylinder open -- but what is the Crane number you refer to? When I am able to inspect it later this week I will write down all the numbers with corresponding locations.

    Thanks.
    I inspected it and I am assuming the Colt s/n is the one you see on the frame upon swinging open the cylinder -- it is 224690. The Army assigned on the bottom of the grip frame is 69105.

    I will be getting it as soon as all the paperwork clears.

    Did Colt apply the s/n on the bottom of the grip frame, and were these as specified by the Army contract? And who 'picked' the s/n on the frame under the cylinder arbor? Any reason for the two different numbers, and which one is the 'official' Colt s/n?

    And just curious, what was the reason for Colt shipping it to the Springfield Armory -- was that just the issuing agency for the Army?

    I have another set of numbers to offer to the collection. Colt number 181601 and Army butt number 29013. This one has AA stamped on it and I am wondering did these things go to the armory for refurbishing? I am hoping to acquire this one.

    The one I am in the process of purchasing also has AA stamped on the left side, just below the front end of the cylinder. Probably an arsenal rebuild mark -- not sure which arsenal this corresponds with, but we should find out from someone here.

    On my 1911 arsenal rebuild the AA stands for the Augusta Aresenal.....the one I am looking at also had a large D shaped figure with an x inside.

    As to the serial numbers, refer back to post #451.

    Springfield Armory was the primary U.S. military arsenal from the late 1700's until it closed in the late 1960's. Springfield Armory manufactured military small arms, and was the shipping destination for a large percentage of the small arms produced by contractors.

    Springfield Armory, Inc. is a commercial firearms manufacturer, but has no connection to the original Springfield Armory.

    Colt Model 1917 Revolver serial number 29013 was shipped January 31, 1918 to Springfield Armory, in a shipment of 8600.

    As with other military small arms they were sent back to various military rebuild facilities for overhaul. The AA on yours does indicate Augusta Arsenal.
