OLD COLT: WE PROVIDE THE PUBLIC WITH AN ONLINE EDUCATIONAL RESOURCE FOR OLD COLT GUNS.

In January of 1932 Colt first introduced the National Match model in their catalog.  It featured a hand-honed action, a "Match" barrel and "Partridge" type sights.  At it's release the cost was $40.75 when a standard Government model cost $36.75.

During the pre-war era a rough estimate is less than 3,000 national match pistols were produced.  The pre-war units were manufactured until 1942 where they would cease production for Colt to be able to manufacture pistols for the US Government.
