Our boy and favorite gunsmith, Karl Beining ( KGBcustom.com) has provided some more 6 shooter content for you wheel gun guys this week. This time a M1917 Colt made in 1919. The M1917 was chambered in .45ACP and issued out to troops in WW1 to take some of the slack when there wasn’t enough M1911s to go around.
For those who don’t know, revolvers using rimless cases like the 45ACP needed a thin adapter referred to as moon and half moon clips to allow them to be extracted. There is a .45 Auto Rimmed case that , as it’s name implies, is just a rimmed 45 ACP case.
Of course a military pistol has to have a lanyard loop.
