Barrel with Colt two line address on top of barrel, elevation adjustable front target sight with screw adjustable rear sight and two piece checkered walnut grips with nickel silver escutcheons. Left receiver marked "THE WOODSMAN". Slide marked with traditional "COLT AUTOMATIC CAL. 22 LONG RIFLE" with rampant Colt. An unusual inspection proof of "(crown) W" is found on the right side of the trigger guard. This proof has only been observed on 1941 production Colt automatics and revolvers delivered to Great Britain during the year of 1941. The pistol is housed in a retailer's fitted leather truck case with green velvet lining and the retailer's label in the lid "GRAY & CO. GUN AND RIFLE MAKERS 14 UNION STREET INVERNESS". Cased pistol is accompanied by two ten round Colt magazines; one two tone and one solid blue finish, both being marked on the base "COLT WOODSMAN 22 LR". Extremely fine with a minuscule amount of finish loss at the extreme edge of the rear sight corners and a slight witness mark of use on the face of the slide from firing. The grips are perfect with sharp points on the checkering and no indication of wear. The spare magazine has a small scratch across the base and slight finish loss from being inserted into the magazine well. The small leather truck style case is very fine with expected scuffing and scrapes to exterior of leather. The interior is very fine with all velvet intact. Retailers label is excellent as well with all gold lettering and is fully intact. The partitions are solid and have no evidence of being reinstalled or repaired. Truly an outstanding pre-war Colt automatic. CORRECTION: Barrel length corrected to 6-1/2".
