"Colt Model 1902 Military Marked US Army Contract (C17375)
"Serial Number 15053. Made in 1902. 38 ACP caliber with a 6" barrel. Very rare gun with only 200 in the contract. All of these guns were shipped on July 18, 1902. These guns were rejected from any furth orders due to numerous shortcomings such as small caliber, the gun was muzzle heavy, liability to misfire and to jam. This is a very scarce contract and this particular gun is in very fine condition with 80% of the original blue. Grips are excellent. This gun has the “U.S." marking on the left hand side of the front trigger guard bow and the military inspectors markings on the right hand side of the frame. This is of course one of the very earliest 1902 Miliary models with the knurled slide. Beautiful condition rare colt military Model 1902!
