    What a great looking wheelgun. It's held up very well considering its age. Hard to believe it's over 100 years old!

    Very nice gun. I believe it would have started out with a blued finish and went through a arsenal rebuild process during WWII. Great find.

    Hi John; yes, probably Parkerized by US Army Ordnance Dept Manila since almost all the 1909s spent their entire service life in the Philippines.

    Wow, nice pistol.

    Have you given it a test run?
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    It's a very impressive revolver! It's lucky to have survived in the Philippines. I believe that most American arms in Philippines were either captured by the Japanese or destroyed to avoid capture in 1942. Good that it is in SW Virginia now, where people appreciate fine guns.

    I have 200 rounds of .45 (Long) Colt ammo arriving next week and I'll post a range report when I shoot the 1909.

    Got several boxes of military issue Frankford Arsenal ammo for the pistol.
