    Pistol is in good condition for its age. Still has the factory blue finish. As the title states, the cocking serrations are cut backwards. I've seen this before on some pistols from this era. There are some handling marks, but nothing major or deep. The rear sight does have some dings in it. Any dark area is smeared oil. Real elephant ivory grips. Comes as shown with 1 magazine. Ships from FFL to FFL. Payment by USPS money order or Paypal F/F. No trades please.

    Please click on each photo to enlarge the view so you can see every detail.

    Thanks for looking!

    $1200 shipped

    1. Do the backward serration raise the value or lower it? (I'm thinking of that upside-down airplane stamp.)
    2. How did Colt misplace the machine that put on nice roll stamps like that? That is the term right for the printing on the slide?

    Roll mark usually. But like being married... Nothing is set in stone.

    The grips are probably worth the asking price.

    In my opinion, I don't think it does either. It's just not "aesthetically" correct.

    Very cool pistol!

    RE: backward serrations....maybe Baers should have this so you can "push" the real tight ones into battery?? :D
