Attention Gun lovers
For those who love beautiful and rare firearms, RIAC has some amazing offerings on their upcoming December Premier Auction.
They include a no serial number Singer Manufacturing Company M1911A1.
The sewing machine maker cranked out just 500 GI 45s in 1940-41, which came from an Educational Order issued by the Army. However, as this one has no inspector or frame markings, signs point to it being either a presentation gun made for company brass or a lunchbox gun.
How about this early production Colt Model 1911 with its scarce original box and even the original Ordnance Bill of Sale?
The U.S. Army contract pistol was shipped in a lot of 350 to the Commander of Springfield Armory in April 1912. Since then it has been carefully documented and passed down through generations of Lt. H.A. Davidson’s family.
Then there is this North American Arms Co. Model 1911 pistol, which was produced in December of 1918 in Quebec, Canada.
Did I mention it is SN#1?
And in the “you don’t see that every day” category, how about this Colt 2nd Issue Officer’s Model Target D.A. revolver that was manufactured in 1912 and is complete with an attachable period shoulder stock/holster manufactured by either W.P Thompson or the Ideal Holster Company.
Finally, how about this Belgian LeMat grapeshot carbine with a centerline 20 gauge shotgun barrel sistered under a 44-caliber revolving carbine.
It has Liege proofs and is SN#4.
If only I had a much larger piggy bank.
