    That is a nice letter and certainly a bargain at 50.00!
    Pistol is also nice

    Just wanted to add my Norwegian 45 to this post. I am also looking at another one that is Nazi marked and has been in the owner's collection since the 1960's. He got it from Hunter's Lodge.

    Sir,
    I have a copy of your book on the 1914 Kongsberg Colten. I own one of the 1942 made guns and I noticed that the hammer is not serial numbered but it has
    the wide checkering and an "S" on the left hand side. 26641 is the SN of my gun.
    Also, there is no serial number on the barrel bushing and the magazine release.
    Can you comment on the parts that were not serial numbered on the later guns (1941-1945) as opposed to the earlier guns from 1914 to about 1929.

    My best regards

    Terry St.Clair

    Sir,
    In the late 1920s, the procedure for numbering individual parts of the pistol was changed.
    Some of the small parts were no longer to be numbered.
    After 1933, the hammers were not to be numbered.
    So it is correct that the parts you mention should not be numbered if your pistol is from 1942.
    The marking "S", I have not seen before.
    Best regards

    NORWEGIAN 45 AUTO PISTOL

    Serial #26641 shipped Feb. 2nd, 1942 in a group of 150 pistols numbered from 26605-26754 to AOK Norwegen (Armeeoberkommando Norwegen) which was the German Army unit operating in northern Norway at that time.

    Here's a special 41. With that unique 41 Finish.

    The 41 is/was "hatt malingsfinish",---had paint finish. (See p. 178 in Clawson's GM book, or p. 110 in KONGSBERG-COLTEN.)

    Stan3, That is a great reference book even though it is written in Norwegian. A while back, one of the Colt Forum members was thinking about translating it. I guess that member decided to forego that effort.

    When I complete the transaction on the Nazi-proofed Norwegian, I do plan to get letters on both guns. I am hoping the price is still only $50 per gun.

    The S marked hammer is a Springfield Armory.

    saintclair,

    Yes, it is a "great reference book",---it has LOTS of Pictures!

    There is a Waffenamt 45 in the neighborhood...will try to get some pictures.

    Here's some Norwegian hammers, a 1927 and the last two are the 41 above (old pictures).

    Best Regards,

    I have a dumb question. Though as I don't know the answer and would like to, maybe just a little dumb. With a little modification of the left grip, can the interesting slide release of the Kongsberg be used on a Colt 1911 / A1 / Government Model without further modification? Thanks.

    Fortibus55,

    Yes,---most likely.

    Have examined several Norwegian Pistols with COLT small parts (including barrels),...they all appeared to work. One was used with a COLT slide stop and target (style) stocks. The Norwegian and COLT slide stop interchanged. (Have not tried a Norwegian SS in a COLT Pistol.)

    Best Regards,

    1911 19591 Norwegian.JPG1911 19591 Norwegian 1928.JPG1911 19591 norw.JPGI was after the KONGSBERG COLTEN book, and finally bought one from my friend. I opened it and noted that it was in Norwegian - my bad. However, I have made a new friend from Norway who has helped a little. PS she hates guns.

    Now all I need is to find someone who needs a Springfield hammer who has a Norwegian hammer to trade. Odds seem about 1 million to one. Other option is to see if anyone has a Norwegian hammer to sell. Much better odds. I will post that in WTB section. Thanks JohnnyP.
