I am tasked with gun dispositions at my dept.
I came across a well used and tarnished Norwegian Colt 1911 marked 1942. (I say Colt, it does not have Colt anywhere on it. I am basing that on what I read in the internet)
I am just curious, if this gun was made in 1942 in German controlled Norway and there is no import stamp on the gun,
how did it make it here to the US? (Was import laws part of the Gun Control Act in 68?)
I don't have the details why we possess it and the gun functions (rough) however the barrel rifling is very thin. the rear sight is off center and it is missing the lanyard loop on the MSH.
it is wearing pachmyers that are worn smooth in some areas.
Sorry, I did not snap a photo.
thanks in advance
