I haven't shot this old gal in awhile and think I'll take it to the range on Monday. The slide was made in 1943 but the serial number indicates it was assembled to the receiver in 1944.
They are great shooters. I like the way they operate and how they feel in my hand.I have a later model P1 (1991) I guess that is way later but still in the same century. LOL I love to shoot her, once I figured out how to aim her she has become quite the little accurate shooter. I got her almost 3 years ago and she was brand spanking new with a manufacture date of 1/91. I guess she was never issued but she is a sweetheart. Enjoy shooting her grandmother LOL.
