This Colt Officer's Model Match was shipped to the Transportation Officer at Fort George G. Meade in Odenton, Maryland on July 29th, 1960 in a 33 gun shipment. It was built on July 15th, 1960.
The letter has a notation that this was a "National Match Grade" and Furnished with a short action. That notation means that instead of this being built as a DA or double-action revolver, it was built as a SA or single-action. These special order models were purchased for the Army Pistol Team's use in competitive matches.
