4/30/2014 - Firearms and Militaria: Live Salesroom Auction
.45 ACP caliber, 4.25" barrel, S/N 687-LW. Blue finish, Coltwood grips. Frame marked with crossed cannons and ordnance wheel cartouche. Factory letter states pistol was shipped to "The Commanding Officer, Springfield Armory, Springfield, Massachusetts, August 31,1950"

Excellent condition with an excellent bore.  The pistol is near-new condition showing almost no visible wear. There is a small ding on the bottom of the magazine well and the magazine where the pistol has been dropped. This gun was a test pistol for the military as they were searching for a light weight pilot survival pistol. This is an interesting piece worthy of further research and definitely for the advanced 1911 collector.
