We are pleased to present for you today a restored example of the iconic Colt Model of 1911 U.S. Army in “Black Army” finish.
Carrying serial number 530678, this World War I era service sidearm was made in 1918, when the famous semi-autos were polished and finished in the so-called “Black Army” style, including charcoal blued slide and frame.
Our period-correct finishing techniques reinstate the WWI heritage of this 1911’s original blackened finish. Colt used this in lieu of the standard polish and Charcoal Blue finish of the period in order to boost wartime production.
