SN C1918-00001. Cal. 30-06. bbl 27″ W/flash hider. Utterly fantastic Colt Model 1918 Self Loading Rifle manufactured for Colt under license by Ohio Ordnance Works, Inc. – Top of receiver marked “COLT’S PT. MFG. CO.” with classic rampant colt logo prominently displayed on the ejector plate. Completely faithful to the original Browning Automatic Rifle down to the receiver machined from a solid billet of steel as opposed to an investment casting, and incorporates the early flash hider design. This incredibly beautiful high luster deep blued finished SEMI-AUTO rifle pays tribute to the Browning Automatic Rifle and save the fantastic finish, the rampant colt engraved on the top of the receiver, the lettering, and fact that it is semi-auto, is in every way the classic American B.A.R. – Forend and stock was exactly copied from original new old stock examples, and no expense nor effort was spared when making only 200 specimens of this presentation level quality rifle. This offering includes two high lustrous finished magazines, leather sling, boxed cleaning kit, and a high-end specially commissioned felt lined leather case which was made in Italy by the same company that makes high quality shotgun cases. Combination lock case is marked with COLT logo inside the cover and incorporates compartments for the accessories, including a special glossy paged manual specifically for this 200 rifle run. CONDITION: As new in all respects. Bolt has been drawn back to check to ensure rifle was not loaded and just as fresh as can be imagined with a light coating of preservative oil. This cataloger has seen a fair number of Browning Automatic Rifles but none come close to the beauty of fit and finish of this specimen. Number 1 of 200, Robert Landies has stated there will only ever be 200 of these manufactured ever. This rifle is the ultimate showpiece and tribute to the Browning Automatic Rifle and one cannot help but be drawn like a magnet to it. That this is serial #1 makes this the ultimate opportunity to own the most desired specimen of this very limited production run. 51087-15 JWK84 (9,000-12,000) C&R – Lot 3008
