Colt M1911 U.S. Army .45 ACP Transition Model

Posted on: 03/31/2024

@SAAJ - In Charles W. Clawson's Collector's Guide to Colt .45 Service Pistols, Models of 1911 and 1911A1 third edition, the Author describes:

"Colt Transition Model – Distinctive Features
HP — Top of chamber as viewed through ejection port.
K — On bottom of most barrels forward of lugs.
(COLLECTORS NOTE: To distinguish between 1924 and 1918
barrels with the same HP mark, 1924 barrels have a slight lip on the
bottom at the sloped end of the chamber. 1918 barrels are smooth at
this juncture).”

To answer your question about Colt never throwing anything away, yes that seems to be the saying. Meaning that they would use leftover parts towards the next generation of pistols. You see this very clearly in the government models that were produced right after WWII concluded.

In my opinion the barrel that’s in the pistol currently is not the same one that it would have originally shipped with. The details from Clawson’s book above align with the transitional models that I have seen in the past.

Per some email requests, additional photos of the pistol disassembled, barrel lugs, barrel bore and magazine detail have been uploaded to the gallery.

On the barrel, there is a “N” with serif’s forward the lug. Bore shows crisp grooves with some minor frosting.

Magazine is a keyhole style with the fire blue follower.

@cowboy77 - I do not. Initially I thought it was someone's initials and a date. It could be anything really as this would have been something done after it left Colt. I have owned this Cobra since 2019. There was no backstory with it when I purchased it.

Posted on: 10/13/2023

@1911Luger – Thank you for your question. This is an early example of a parkerized M1911A1. In Clawson's big book he states “During the transition period, blued and parkerized parts were intermixed, but the receiver and slide always required the same type of finish. The barrel on this Colt is blue as it should be. Left side is marked “COLT 45 AUTO” with a G forward the lug. There is a “P” stamped on the left side of the lug. I have not swapped out any parts on this pistol and it’s in the same configuration on how I bought it.

Posted on: 09/27/2023

@Andrew77 - The M1911A1 fixed a lot of the frame and slide cracking issues that the M1911 was prone to. I have put a lot of standard velocity, 230 grain ball ammo rounds down range with one of my WWII range pistols without any issues. It would be a good idea to get the pistol inspected by a local gunsmith before firing.

@Cove3rt - Thank you for your question. Charles W. Clawson's Collector's Guide to Colt .45 Service Pistols, Models of 1911 and 1911A1 third edition, the Author writes.... "Serial Numbers 867000-90000 will contains large and small "G" marks intermixed). It should be correct for this pistol.

@Cove3rt - The Colt 1903 Pocket Hammerless were all blue from the factory up to serial number 562000 approximately. Past that, Colt changed the finish to phosphate. They all letter as blue.

@Cove3rt - Great question. In Charles W. Clawson's Collector's Guide to Colt .45 Service Pistols, Models of 1911 and 1911A1 third edition, the Author writes.... "Slides were not authorized to be serial numbered, but a few were numbered under the firing pin stop in the same manner as on Colt commercial pistols. These slides were probably numbered in error by a misinformed machinist."
