dfariswheel, I'm researching the serial numbers of these guns and hope you can help me. The Auto (Standard Model) serial numbers appear to be C010001 through C012888. The Custom Auto (Custom Grade) serial numbers appear to be C070001 through C072145.The Colt Auto shotgun was available in 20 or 12 gauge, and in Magnum.
Barrels were 26", 28", 30", and 32" with plain or vent ribs.
The Custom Auto was the same gun only with fancy wood and a hand engraved receiver.
Both were made from 1962 to 1966.
My 1963 is 3" chamber, 30" Full Choke with Vent RibThe title says it all .. Was there ever a 3 in. mag. made and if so what was the longest VR barrel .. Thanks Randy
I agree with you 100%! I looked at that medallion and thought how cheezie. Of course I don't have another one to compare to. This gun has been a shooter and I could see someone losing the original. The other thing that bothered me about the medallion when I took the photo, is that I had to turn my camera and I wondered if it was mounted upside down. The logo is 180 degrees on the Colt Sauer rifles.I really don’t think medallion on your stock is factory, but I could be totally wrong .
