    Nice find ! I don't know if this is from the same batch since my m1911 serial is 7000 lower. Everything else matches though. Still this number 1 in my M1911 serial puzzles me... it is much bigger than the number 1 in this linked m1911 serial ?
    If I understand correctly this link says these m1911 were shipped without holsters ?

    Like BAR said.... That number 1 was more than likely a nice new 1 die stamp.
    I've seen pictures of Colt .45's and S&W Revolvers being handed out in old pictures with them in the box. That way the instructions, cleaning rod etc were all together.

    Your serial number (IIRC) falls with in the batch sent over seas per that link.

    SilverVeteren's pistol is one of the 51,000 made under the Britishicon order as it is marked on the left side of the frame English Order in Cyrillic. Now the one Charlie found is not from the same contract. IF it is a Russianicon gun then it's from the second contract made directly with the Russian government. BUT the problem is the serial numbers were all used at random for the second 15,000 in the second contract and they look like a standard Colt commercial pistol. A letter to Colt may be able to say yes or no to it being a Russian contract. The letters are not cheap but can be worth it. There are fakes out there as it is an uncommon and can be a valuable pistol to find especially in the second contract.
