1909 Colt US ARMY

Post by BPSTEVE »

Just picked this beauty up. All matching including grips! Both single and double action are silky smooth. Can't wait to get it to range.

Yeah, .45 Colt but, didn't they use a lot of .45 ACP with half moon clips?

These are such great revolvers. Will shoot any load very well out to 50 yards. The front sight looks to be a joke but works very well in real life.
