Not trying to steal the thunder away from napawino, walksoftly, keno813 and the other posters with their excellent '43s, but since today seems to be 1943 Colt day on the forum so I'll throw in my latest purchase. It's maybe 97%, not stone-cold mint but still in excellent shape with little sign of use. All correct and likely original, even down to the open-ended recoil spring. Perfect ghost marks on the back of the firing pin stop plate from the numbered slide, and a clean barrel with just a small spot inside the bore where some slight pitting formed from collected moisture. As usual I found the thing absolutely dry as a bone inside and I think I heard it breathe a sigh of relief once I cleaned it up and oiled it inside and out. Please excuse the color variations in the pics, but there are some terrible wildfires going on in Eastern Washington at the moment and the sun was literally blood-red this morning, which played tricks with my camera.
