    ONE OF 18,000**1919 Colt USA 1902 Military Model .38ACP Calibre Semi Automatic Pistol With Colt Signature Gutta Percha Grips & Military Lanyard Ring**UK/EU DEACTIVATION CERTIFICATED** Sn 17748 - 17748

    The Colt Model 1900 was a short-recoil operated "self-loading", or semi-automatic .38 calibre handgun introduced by Colt's Manufacturing Company at the turn of the 20th century. It also marked the introduction of .38 ACP, the round for which it is chambered (not to be confused with the shorter-cased .380 ACP), and was the first handgun to utilize short-recoil operation.It was developed from John M. Browning's earlier prototypes in the late 1890s. The United States military tested the design against other semiautomatic pistols by European makers, and adopted some versions for trial use. The M1900 and variants were also offered commercially. Variants included the Model 1902 Sporting, Model 1902 Military, Model 1903 Pocket (only in .38 ACP models; the .32 ACP model was a different design), and the Model 1905, which introduced the .45 ACP cartridge. The designs of 1909 and later did away with the front barrel link, replaced with a simple bushing, and would become the related, and famed, M1911 pistol. The Model 1902 Military Model had a lanyard swivel on bottom rear of left grip and was produced between 1902–1929. There were only about 18,000 of these fine pistols produced. This is an excellent example of the Colt 1902 Military Model in .38ACP calibre. It has the correct open military sights, external hammer and correct lanyard ring. The pistols metal work retains its original blue finish. Its original Colt signature Gutta Percha hard rubber grips are excellent and undamaged. The left side of the slide is crisply marked with Colt's Hartford USA address and 1997-1902 patent detail. The right side is marked ‘Automatic Colt Calibre 38 Rimless Smokeless’. The pistol is serial number ‘41390’ which dates its manufacture to 1919. The pistol’s original removable magazine has its spring and loading plate. The bottom of the magazine is stamped ‘Cal .38 Colt’. Deactivated to UK/EU specification the weapons slide moves backwards and forwards under spring tension, its trigger moves and the magazine can be removed. The price for this rare pistol, a fore runner of the iconic Colt M1911 pistol includes UK/EU deactivation certificate and UK delivery. Sn 17748
