    Colt's Double Action Revolver, Model of 1909, .45 cal.

    Some photos:























    Not fancy, but had the pistol program not worked out the way it did, this revolver may have had been the U.S. sidearn for some time!

    Jughead, yours seems to have a somewhat higher degree of polish, more like a commercial model. Is it an early example? Mine's more of a matte finish, not bead blasted, but looks a traditional rust blue that isn't typical of of Colt's.

    Originally all the Model 1909 revolvers had the high polish charcoal blue finish, with the trigger, hammer, and grip screw being fire blued. The finish was the type used on the commercial Colts of the period, and the first of the Model of 1911 pistols had the same mirror finish. The military objected to the highly reflective finish of the Model 1911, and a more subdued finish was then used.

    While not mint, this is an excellent example of the Model 1909 Revolver. Not a very good picture as the reflections are hard to deal with, but gives you some idea of the type of finish used. This one is in the 35,000 serial number range, and was shipped to Manila in the Philippines on November 24, 1909.

    Much easier to see the Colt's emblem on the example above. Mine's about invisible.

    OK, maybe I'm just too tired to see straight. Apart from the grips, it looks astonishingly like my Colt New Service. What are the differences?
