Colt .45 model 1927 ejercito argentino early serial number

I picked up this ejercito Argentina model 1927 today. Serial number 94xx and I just wanted to get some info on it. Maybe value for condition and being an older original gun. Its hard for me to find info based on serial number or info on value of gun with some wear and use. Any help is much appreciated.

Colt .45 model 1927 ejercito argentino early serial number

I had the chance to pick up a Colt .45 model 1927 ejercito argentino from a friend who wasn't sure what it was. I didn't know details about it either, but I knew the background a little and that even the late serial number guns in decent condition brought $300 or more. The gun I purchased is serial number 94xx and I later read that this gun is one of the first 10,000 order that was actually still made by Colt in Connecticut. Reason for the post is just to see if anyone else on here owns an early S/N gun also and if maybe you could point me in the right direction as far as value and collectibility to see if I made the right choice and got it at a good price. I've seen a ton of the late serial models and some in similar used condition as mine for sale or sold. But I literally can't find any, pre-10,000 serial number guns, to even see condition and to get a price comparison. Any help is much appreciated!

There are people here who can help you.

But you will have to post pictures in order for them to do so. Preferably in natural light, indirect sunlight is best.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Look carefully at the breechface. Many of these guns were stored for many years in armories on racks with steel rods. I have seen some with really badly peened breech faces from those steel rods.

IndianaColt,

There are a few of these 10000 COLT manufactured Model 1927 Pistols in the neighborhood.

Value would depend on several variables.

Here's an early one.

Best Regards,
