    What year is this Colt Govt. Model booklet FORM M-50-R?

    Hoping one the more knowledgeable can assist with getting a handle on the year this booket appeared - Also if it shipped with the early "Commercial" Govt. Models. Described as "COLT INSTRUCTIONS, 45 CALIBER GOVERNMENT MODEL, 4 1/4" X 8 1/2" CARDBOARD COVERS, INSIDE 8" X 8 1/4", 8 PAGES. ILLUSTRATED, FORM M-50-R"

    Ideally I am hoping for early teens to go with my 1914 pistol. Images borrowed from Sam Lisker's Colt Autos website.

    I believe a 1914 Government Model pistol would be the third year of production. The (M-50-R) manual shown was the sixth in this series manual so it is probaby for a later one as opposed to an eary pistol. Probably not correct for a 1914 gun.
    Fortibus55 and ei8ht like this.
