We love historic and vintage Colt firearms, especially if they can be traced through the archives! This is a very special opportunity to purchase a hard to find Colt 1902 Military model. The 1902 Military model features a lanyard loop near the magwell, which differentiates from the Sporting model in both serial number series, as well as a square and lengthened grip frame that allows for an additional round in the magazine. This Colt 1902 came in from a family with nearly no original finish, but the pistol had some wonderful qualities that made it the perfect candidate for Doug Turnbull Restorations in New York to take on the project! The pistol arrived with no corrosion or pits anywhere on the pistol and the bore was excellent. Lastly, the pistol came with some very old, authentic Colt Mother of Pearl grips perfectly fitted to the pistol frame. The pistol was sent off for restoration last August and arrived at the beginning of this year. We sent off for the letter which verified the model of pistol, with a production date right before Christmas, December 23, 1911. The pistol arrived to its destination, A. Combaluzier, Mexico City, Mexico. This dealer was the largest firearms dealer in Mexico and sold to civilians, military and law enforcement. The factory letter shows that the pistol was not shipped with grips. However, this was a common practice, as it allowed for customers to select from grip options found at the firearms dealer. The pistol is in as-new, fully restored condition with all roll marks and edges clear and crisp, and the deep charcoal blued finish with fire blued small parts make this a stunning example! Don't miss out on this opportunity to own a beautiful, hard to find Colt 1902 Military Turnbull pistol!
