What are the marks on the trigger guard?




There is a 5 on one side and a W on the the other. THere also seems to be some kind of symbol on the top of the guard. What do they mean? I never seen anything like that on any of my other 1911s.

All modern (20th Century) Colt commercial firearms have a small "VP" in a triangle on the LEFT front trigger guard.

This is Colt's Verified Proof stamp, indicating the gun passed it's proof test.
The other stamps are inspectors stamps.
