    Here is GM C406 with an exposed base plate magazine. Of course magazines can easily be changed but I think this one is original to the pistol.

    Here is C303. Notice it came with the same low temper line commercial keyhole as C728 and other early GM pistols I've examined that appeared to be all original.

    A sincere Thank You to Scott for posting this 3 digit Colt, the late 1913, the 1942 Navy, and the Colt C/M re-number pistols.
    I know it took considerable time to photograph them, but also lots of time to post and type the narratives. To post 4 rare ones in 1 day and respond to posters is almost Herculean.

    I really appreciate your willingness to spread the joy of sharing all your rare Model Os with us.

    Mike

    A beautiful very early Colt 1911. That's interesting about Ty Cobb too.

    Absolute WOW, what a beauty! I have an early 1911A1 (actually the 33rd A1 model made in 1924 according to the s/n) -- what a combo those two together would make.
