Serial number 2902, indicating production in 1931, first year of production. Extremely early solid barrel prior to the introduction of the floating chamber designed to amplify recoil and give an experience closer to shooting a .45 ACP instead of a .22 LR. Adjustable square notch rear sight, tall contoured front sight. Right side with "COLT // (Ace in lozenge) // .22 // LONG / RIFLE" on right side, left side with 2 line 1 block patent date and information with pony at rear. Recoil spring with stacked shock buffers. Fully checkered walnut grips, checkered hammer with spur, left side only magazine release, slide release, and safety; short checkered trigger. Long 1911A1 grip safety, knurled arched mainspring housing. Two tone magazine. Left side of trigger guard with "3" and Colt "VP" proof, right side of trigger guard with "20" and Ampersand used by Colt to indicate return to factory for reworking. CONDITION: Fine, retaining much of the attractive Colt bluing with some scattered marks and losses to high edges, towards muzzle, and on front grip strap. Some silvering to reciprocating areas, takedown mark. Action works appropriately when cycled by hand, bore is excellent with crisp rifling. A great example of an early Ace. EW
