    An absolutely correct and original 1918 Colt Government Model .455 RAF Eley/Webley!!!! I don't usually collect this type of Colt, however I could not let this one get away!! I will post more detailed photos tomorrow!! It is hard to find one with the original Colt blue finish..

    It has a perfect bore and correct magazine!!!!

    Back around 1979 I found a .455 Colt auto in a pawn shop in Seattle for about $450. It was in fairly decent shape, and I was tempted. But I was just passing through and didn't jump on it. It had an officer's name and unit engraved on the side of the slide. When I got home I sent an inquiry off to a museum in the UK and darned if they didn't authenticate the name and unit. It was a nice WWI pistol with provenance. I should have grabbed it.
