I purchased a US Army colt 1901. I have two marking; 1) it appears to be JTT 2) CAF
can someone help me?
Also what is a good web site in regard to 1901 colts.
thank you!!
"CAF", I don't know.
"JTT" =John Taliaferro Thompson, inspector for the Army, later on the Thompson-LaGarde commission to determine the new pistol caliber after the failure of the .38 Colt in the Phillipines campaigns against Moro insurrectionists hopped up on drugs and religious fervor. Then, in WWI, developed the Thompson sub-machine gun. Retired as Major General.
