I recently picked up an Argentine Colt with the following markings:

EJERCITO ARGENTINO
SIST COLT CAL 11.25MM
MOD 1927 84xxx

Can anyone help me find an approximate year of manufacture for this pistol?

Thanks.

Thanks for the replies and the info. Looks like mine dates back to 1955. I kinda thought they were older, like the late 20's through the 30's.
