Colt Government, 45 acp. Built in 1917, and shipped in 1917 to LT Paul R Caruthers USR. This has all correct parts, about 50% blue and a VG-VG+ bore. The Colt factory letter, indicting this information is included. This US GI was from the Columbus Metro Area, and was initially purchased directly from the family locally. It is very unusual to find a Colt shipped directly to an Officer of the US Government.
