I found this M1917 at a local gun shop that I don't visit much. It was sitting on a shelf well behind the counter, and I almost didn't see it. As it was, I spotted the cylinder release over the edge of the shelf.

The finish is original, with some wear near the muzzle end of the barrel. Original grips are numbered to the gun. Lockup is tight, but the timing is a little slow - but safe to shoot due to the Colt lockwork design. I may stretch the hand if I shoot it much.

One of my two 1917s looks just about like that one, and it has of the smoothest trigger pulls I've ever encountered in any revolver. my grandfather had one in WW1; he sent to Britain in 1940, and my dad recalled his group during training in 1942 were issued 1917s (he did say Colts) ,with the butt forward holster for a whole day, then the next day they came back and got 'em back...
Fun shooters,and you definitely get qestions at the range.
