1950-1955 Colt Government Models

420 10
A 1950, 1951, 1952, 1953, two 1954's and a 1955 Colt Government Model. All in .45 ACP.

The serial numbers range from 246030-C to 271665-C. Colt wasn't producing many .45 ACP GM's in those days. About 25,000 pistols, 5000 a year average. The average work year was 261 days. Simple arithmetic suggests rough production of 20 (or so), .45 ACP pistols per work day.

Maybe that's the reason .45 ACP GM's are so darned hard to find. Especially in relatively high condition.
