I was lucky enough to have this gem sent to me last April from the CMP. She's a Service Grade 1944 Colt with the original finish, no rebuild markings, Colt grips and original Colt blued barrel with a "D" stamp under the barrel. Frame to slide fit is nice and tight as well and shoots just fine for being as old as she is. Some of the small parts might be post war replacement based on finish but she appears mostly original for the year. Worth the $1,050 for sure.
