    I just looked at the Gunsinternational link.The Stillwell mentioned in the ad was Jumping Joe not Vinegar Joe.The info is correct just the wrong Stillwell.He was a rather unusual General.

    I think his nickname was Cider Joe. He was Vinegar Joe's son.

    Gentlemen,
    Thanks so much for the information! Robert if this pistol fits your collection I am not married to it. I am just glad to have been in the right place and time to save it from the blow torch.

    Regarding Colt 1903 s/n 568438 issued to BG Schlatter, no other documents of it being issued to other GOs were found at the RIA Museum.

    Something to think about... Contact the states’ NG HQ (STARC) -Adjagent General office... tell their secretary that you are researching a G.O. pistol (M15) and if they knew who who has the historical records..
    In California, the STARC HQ supply and Admin office kept those records. “Death by paper cut “
