Sistema Colts

I've got a thing for Argentine weapons and have been in the hunt for a 1927 Sistema Colt for some time. Finally last week an auction opportunity for several Argentine weapons came up and I grabbed it. I got two Sistema Colts and two 1909 Argentine Mausers.

Here are the Sistemas (Not great pictures, but I'll post better when they arrive). Both supposed to have matching numbers

Calfed,

Congratulations ! (There are many collectors that like them !!)

The top one, is one of 100 (98401 - 98500) shipped 9 Sep 1958 to General Directorate of Naval Material.

The 2nd one, is one of 20 (86591 - 86610) shipped 15 Oct 1955 (there were other shipments on 15 Oct 1955) to General Directorate of Naval Material. (And, it also looks like it needs a correct Left Stock.)

Best Regards,
Thanks, Stan...great information

You did well.

I remember when the Sistema was big at the Gun Shows 40 years ago. They were half the price of a used Colt and of course cheaper than a USGI

You did well and we are looking for more pictures and a Range Report.
My Sistema is from the 1950's and has been "ridden hard and put away wet" - but my Ballester-Molina condition's more then make up for it!

Here's a link to more photos of the B-M:

Nice guns, CWO. How does the B-M shoot compared to the Sistema?

For the longest time Sistemas were dirt-cheap and a great option for someone wanting a USGI look-alike to take to the range and shoot. Unfortunately those days appear to be behind us as I'm seeing Sistemas advertised for what a Remington Rand sold for only 4 or 5 years ago.
I got a decent deal on the whole kit and caboodle.

Thanks, Kam!

Those '09's are in amazing condition for 110 year old rifles.

What amazes me is what you can still get 1911-wise for $400-450. My son jus bought a couple of Tisas 1911's for a bit over $400 each. They are amazing for the price.
