Albert Foster Jr is a name that many Colt collectors love to see on a factory letter. Foster was a long time executive with Colts’s starting with the company around 1909. He ran Colt‘s New York Office thru the early 1940’s. After he died in the late 1940’s, his collection of over 1000 guns was marketed by James Serven of California, Serven was a gun dealer and author of quite a few early publications on gun collecting.
Serven published a catalog in 1948 which included most of Foster’s collection.

The Commercial SM Ace is a rare gun. Of the approximately 13,000 made, only 500 were shipped commercially.
They are very well made and every example I have examined is of exceptional quality. The Hand fitted actions are as crips as any National Match or Super Match you will find.
