In 1916, the Argentine military adopted the Colt M1911 as standard (called the "Pistola Colt Modelo 1916" in Argentina), and contracted with Colt for the supply of these guns. In 1927, the Argentines adopted the pistol that became the M1911A1 in the United States, designating it the "Pistola Colt Modelo 1927. In the mid-1920's, the Argentine Army contracted with Colt to supply 10,000 M1911A1 pattern pistols. These pistols were delivered between 1927 and 1928. In 1932, the Argentine Policia de la Capital decided to replace their .38 S&W revolvers with Colt Government Model .45 ACP pistols. The first Policia de la Capital order was placed in 1933 through a private arms dealer. Police pistols show the fit and finish typical of pre-war Colts, and are blued with commercial markings while Army pistols were parkerized with military markings.

Hi neighbor! What would be the purpose of the gun? Would you want to shoot it, or add it to a collection? Off the top of my head I'd probably go with the Colt for $450.
