COLT U.S. Service Model ACE, R.S. Marked, 1941
This Colt Service Model ACE was shipped from Colt to Springfield Armory Feb. 27, 1941. The Military Inspectors initials RS (Robert Sears) are located on the frame just under the slide release. These early pistols were shipped with Colts Commercial blue finish, later to be changed to the more common Parkerized finish with significantly less polishing. The reference photos I’ve found for this model show full checkered grips, not the Military style diamond grips featured on this gun. It seems reasonable to me when, in early 1941, Colt was shipping pistols to Springfield to satisfy a military contract, Diamond grips, from old stock, would have been an acceptable alternative. In short, I think they are correct. The slide is numbered under the bolster 16 / 56 matching the gun number. It is equipped with the floating chamber, early two tone mag, and correct sights. The finish is the original bright commercial blue. There is wear on the front grip strap, left side of the slide and the rear top corner of the slide. The action is very smooth and tight, the bore is excellent. The survivability of a 1941 made gun, RS marked, in this condition is quite rare. This is a fine addition for a discriminating Colt or Military collector. .22 L.R. Cal. with a 5 ½” Barrel. Serial Number 1656 FFL Required.
