My loving wife gave me an envelope today she had in her office.  Inside was the Colt Letter for my Colt New Service I acquired probably 2 years ago.  The gun came with a certificate that it had been used in the movies.  The colt letter dated Jan 2019 (either post office really screwed up or it has been laying around the house 22 months) states the guns is .455 and was one of 500 shipped to London Armory Company July 13, 1915.  I expect it must have crossed the channel but one never knows.  One wishes these old guns could talk what a tale many could tell.

Very nice!  I have a 1915 built one also.  Originally a .455 but reamed to .45 Colt.  Mine has a London Proof House proof on it.  Is yours English proofed?
