I have a couple of them and they are excellent shooters. I agree 550 is about right. I would recommend replacing the stock magazine springs with wolff +5% springs, and I always replace the recoil spring and firing pin spring as well with the wolff kits.
I bought one (Mustang Plus II) here several months back.. It was spendy but it was high polish with ivory. It runs just fine. Remember small guns don’t make very good day at the range guns. It is a backup that is easily hidden. Magazines are unique to that specific gun, plan ahead. X grip extensions don’t not fit the mags. I’m not a 380 fan, but this shinny little Colt with ivory suckered me out of some tall $. It wears well opposite a Wilson 4 inch ACP with ivory. It’s Texas, we put ivory on everything.
I was offered the pictured woodsman. Any assistance on what to look for? A forum look up indicates 1936 build (early 100k). Safe to shoot hv 22lr? Appears to be in 90-95% condition except for some verdigris on the grip where it was left in the holster. I think it will wipe off. No box. Regards
I just noticed that Jackthedog has a 1945 made Norwegian .45 Auto with Nazi marking for auction on Gun Auction. Here is the web site for anyone with interest. Its serial number is 30500 which is very late in production.

Hey guys! I recently bought a Colt 1911C Series 70 Government model. I love it! It shoots just fine and didn't have any hiccups so far through about 200 rounds. I took apart the gun to clean however, and noticed a couple anomalies.
First of which, I noticed that there is a weird pattern sort of...
1915 Colt introduced the "Colt, Caliber.22 Target Model" to the world. One of John Browning's wonderful designs. This is the 100th anniversary so let's see some of your favorites. Here's one of mine, an early 2 digit pre-woodsman in the box.
A friend from work gave me this box. Unfortunately the gun doesn't seem to be around anymore. Also came with a care pamphlet and a 3 in 1 oil pamphlet, oil bottle and trigger guard hang tag. Just missing the instruction manual.
I'd love to put the appropriate gun in this box if anyone has one...
