We started off with WWI rifles, then WWII rifles and I started WWII Pistols then there was a Trench Gun thread. To keep it going let's start a WWI Pistol thread.

Of, course my 1911 made in 1918 will top the list as as this is a Colt forum I would expect many to be shown. I'll start with some different ones, both of which were used in both world wars.

A Smith & Wesson 1917. Posed with a 1917 dated holster, Eagle Snap garrison belt and half moon clips. Tight and a great shooter.

A Webley Mk IV in .455 Webley or as the British call it (and marked as such) 450/455. Used in the Boer Wars through WWII as a secondary weapon. Posed with period web belt, canteen and helmet. Not a bad shooter but does shave some lead.

Let's see what you have!

A Smith M1917. Came with a holster marked with Co. D 339th Infantry and dated Sep 20 1918. Owner name on holster verified as member of 339th Infantry Veterans Association. The 339th "Polar Bears" served in North Russia, 1918-1919.
I think this revolver went to Russia, as a U. S. Army issued weapon, for a while. It has been around some but still shoots well.
