    WWI U.S. General Officers pistol. The model 1889 was issued to General Officers in WWI. This pistol belonged to BG Daniel F. Craig. Craig, who was nominated for the Medal of Honor in the Spanish American War (did not receive it), won the D.S.C. in WWI. Gun, holster, medal, nomination and photos were obtained directly from the family.

    From top to bottom: 1914 date LP.08, 1917 date P.04, and 1916 date P.08.

    The LP.08 has an 8" barrel, the P.04 a 6", and the P.08 a 4".

    At the opposite end of the spectrum from those lovely Lugers:

    The lowly Ruby, built by the hundred thousands for the French in the Basque country of Northern Spain around Eibar starting in 1915, by dozens of makers large and small in dramatically varying quality.

    This one was made by Arizmendi y Goenaga, one of the large manufacturers of better quality who produced around 80,000 for French contracts. It’s good enough that it even feeds hollow points using a magazine from a differently coded maker.

    That is a superbly preserved specimen.

    The serial and the milled-out serial slot place it long after WW I, however; it’s a Model 1914/34 from the early 1930s.

    Here’s one in much worse shape that just barely missed the war; a Third Variant Model 1914 which the serial places in 1919.

    And we can come back to the Colt for a spell. Here is the New Service in .455 Eley. This one is Canadian marked.

    Mine is also WWI production, but probably never went to war either.

    While I have quite a few samples that were made during the prewar and WWI years I have only had one that was verifiable US Army issue. It was a Smith 1917 that I unfortunately had to sell about 20 years ago.
