Thanks guys, your kind words are much appreciated.
This one was manufactured in 1921 and although the "Kongsberg Colts" were blued into early 1921, I believe this one to be a refinish. My guess is a very old, well done refinish, but refinished nonetheless.
It was wearing full checkered walnut grips with the left grip modified when I got it. A member in Norway contacted me after I posted pics here and we made a trade. I got a set of original grips straight from Norway! However, they didn't go as well with the pistol as the amazing repro set I got from Richard at vintage1911s. They're the set shown in the photos above. Except for condition, one would be hard pressed to tell them from my Norwegian stocks.
For all it's foibles, this pistol is among my favorites. There's just something about it that pleases my eye.
Every part of the pistol that's not a screw, pin, or spring, is serialized.
