It does have the earlier style name. It should be a 1947 gun. The grips are appropriate to the gun and look just like WWII style grips. I don't know whether major components and small parts left...

The 1918 Colt is one I've had since I was young. I've shot it almost to death and it was well used when I got it. It was my only .45 automatic for some years.

I have a six-inch blued Python. It's a fine gun and possesses more accuracy than its owner can render out of it. I have to say though that the styling is a bit over the top. I could do without the...
