    1940 Canadian Navy Colt New Service in .45 Colt

    I went to a gun show this week and a Colt New Service called to me. 95% finish ,5-1/2" barrel, blued, perfect bore, 1940 production date in .45 [Long]Colt. One of 300 sold to the Canadian Navy in 1941. Stamped "C, broad arrow mark, N" in 3 places. No other British Commonwealth markings or import marks. I dickered a price of $900. I think I did ok.

    I am guessing that it might be in the 353XXX serial range. It could be one that was shipped to Halifax, Nova Scotia. You did well on your purchase as these usually bring three times that much. Can you please post some pictures?

    It sounds like you got a bargin.
    Over 1940/41 there were in fact 500 guns that were shipped to the Canadian Navy in 5 shipments.
    Does you example have a mark on the frame near the hammer of a crown with a "W"inside?

    Regards

    Canadian Navy New Service in .45 Colt

    IMG_0123.JPGIMG_0124.JPGIMG_0126.JPGIMG_0121.JPGIMG_0120.JPGI received my Canadian Navy NS pistol yesterday. Please note the pictures. Note the crudely stamped "C Broad Arrow N" stamps that were applied by the Canadians not the Colt factory. There is no crown or "W" mark near the hammer. More pictures to follow.

    Canadian Navy New Service in .45 Colt

    More pictures. I over estimated the condition. I would say excellent rather than 95%. IMG_0137.JPGIMG_0138.JPGIMG_0138.JPGIMG_0134.JPGIMG_0135.JPG
