Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Kongsberg -- Colt 1911, M/1911 Norwegian Made.

As production start was slow, some M1911's were bought from Colt USA. 400 pistols were shipped to Norway for the Royal Norwegian Navy in 1915, 300 more pistols were shipped in 1917 for the Norwegian Army. Price was US$18.50 per piece. The production at Kongsberg Vaapenfabrikk in Norway started in 1916 and 95 pistols were finished in 1917 and wrongly stamped "COLT AUT. PISTOL M/1912" These pistols were identical to the Colt M1911 except for a minor detail on the hammer checkering. 100 pistols were ordered, but 5 were rejected during production. The serial range was from 1 to 95. Number 1 is in Bady's book "Government Models" and number 2 was stolen from Norwegian Armed Forces Museum in 1978. Kongsberg Vaapenfabrikk was ready to start mass production in 1918. One significant change was now made. The slide-stop was extended down and back to make it easier to operate. This change required a cut-out in the left stock. This change had been suggested in 1916, but did not materialize on the production pistols before in 1918. The new version had the left side of the slide stamped "11.25 m/m AUT. PISTOL M/1914." that was correct as the adoption of the gun was in 1914. Most of the pistols that had been marked "1912" were recalled to the factory to have the "new" slide stop installed. Production went on, but from 1932 to 1939 the production was very low, only 871 were made (approx 22,300 pieces were made before 1940). This particular 1911 was made in 1932 it was one of the first in the line of the Kongsberg made pistols not manufactured by Colt, only 500 were made in 1932,serial numbers 21441-21940,update originally I posted that the action wouldnt open, I just got it back from my smith he fixed the problem it was nothin major,test fired it and it is working flawlessly, updated pics below all original parts with the ending number 737, marked on all moving parts, with one 7rd mag, happy bidding.

    Q:  Hello, Nice gun. Will the slide move at all? Can it be removed? Thanks, Dave 04/14/2012
        A:  Yea it will move and can be taken appart, its not rusted shut or anything, for some reason the barrel wont drop to allow the slide to go back all the way. I just dont have time to take it to a smith, imsure its something simple the gun fires, I used to shoot it when i was a kid. 04/14/2012
