Has anyone seen new number markings like this before? The numbers “2575” are also on the barrel. My dad doesn’t know much about it, it was passed down to him. Also, would love to know any history on date as well. Thanks in advance.

Your 1917 went through an arsenal rebuild and received those numbers to keep the parts together. I used to have a 1909 that had those extra stamps.

I'm at the range now to test fire some light loads I made last night, I had also finished cleaning this revolver yesterday as well... no markings on the butt... and I am unsure about the grips, but I would say they are wood

I guess I misunderstood -- thought your reference to the frame number would be the one on the bottom of the grip butt.

But now I notice there is no hole in the grip butt for the lanyard ring. Did the later models eliminate that feature?

The Army models had a number on the butt that was different from the crane Colt serial number.

Thanks. It has been parkerized for WW2 service with no Arsenal stamps on it. On the bottom of the barrel, on the flat next to the frame are the letters "S" and "P". There are bin numbers from the refinish of 9516 on the parts. Is it possible to know who did the parkerizing?
