    Thanks! From what I've been able to research it looks like she's one of only two or three in the World in her condition... And the earliest of any in her condition.

    Yes, I did post pictures of it before. That's when I was searching for another as nice. It appears there just aren't any. Or at least no one will share photos if there are. The closest is in John Potocki's book. It's the one on the cover shown next to mine in the first picture I posted.

    Oh man, what a beautiful pistol, and the posing is perfect in each picture.

    What is that laying on the magazine in #3 picture?

    That would be the Slide Lock. It slips into the slot at the front bottom portion of the slide and basically holds the gun together.

    Thanks for the positive comments!

    That is an amazing piece.

    Thanks for the gun porn. It's rare to see one of the classics in great shape.

    I feel your pain Brother!... I'd love to shoot it too but that's just not gonna happen. For two reasons: First and foremost I'd hate to damage it with modern ammo and I don't reload .45ACP. Second... (and this is one of the really cool things about this pistol)... When they made these apparently they Blued the inside of the bore. I don't know if this is still the way pistol barrels are blued now because all of my other pistols have been fired enough to remove any blueing that might have been there, or the barrels are not blued at all... This baby still has ALL of the original blueing INSIDE THE BORE!!! Now, how much could it have been shot???

    if it were mine, i would shoot it, even though it would decrease the value. i'd make sure that i had proper ammo for it though.

    i've never been one to own a gun that i didnt shoot.

    i've had 2 guns that when i got them were unfired. one, a colt junior 25 auto, and the other a nylon 66 apache black. i kept the nylon 66 about a month before i shot it. lol the colt about 2 days. while these aren't very collectible, i know they were worth more being unfired.

    i dont see any value in a gun you cant shoot, like a car you cant drive.

    Normally I feel the same... And it's driving me nuts! That's why I had it for sale recently! Not because I was hell-bent on turning a profit on it, but because I'll never shoot it... and that doesn't sit well with me. If it were something that there were more of out there in this condition I'd probably go ahead and run a few rounds down the tube. But, This really IS a rare bird and I doubt there are more than one or two others left in this condition. Keep in mind it's about 103 years old and total production of these was only around 6200. Shooting it would decrease the value by possibly thousands of dollars. I really try not to throw money away like that.
