Serial Number: 139120

The Colt Woodsman originally designed by John Moses Browning for Colt was introduced in 1915 to the Colt family of defense guns as a rimfire target pistol and considered to be the most accurate .22 caliber production pistol ever made. The Woodsman came with an easy .22 self-loader, a European-style heel release, and large trigger guard to accommodate a gloved finger.  This gun was pitched as a farmer/rancher/woodsman’s companion, but soon became a darling of shooting enthusiasts for it’s simplicity and accuracy. 

This specimen is a Pre-War Colt Woodsman Sport Model with very desirable Adjustable Front Sight. This pistol comes with overall excellent condition with 99% of its original factory finish evident with clear rollmarks throughout and a mirror finished bore. A fine Colt trigger breaking at 2.5lb and the optional adjustable front sight make this one accurate gun. Extensively hand fitted by craftsmen this level of fit and finish belongs to a different age, in 1940 when this pistol was made it was the norm, this gun just feels right. 

One of the most popular pistols of the early 20th century it will look great in any contemporary collection.

Enjoy.
