About 6 months ago I had the opportunity to purchase a Colt 1921AC that had the serial numbers ground off.
Mid last week on our way to the TCA shoot, we had a chance to pull the barrel at a friends house, thanks much to SIG for
providing his knowledge, tools and expertise. And to Dave Albert for video taping the discovery.
After carefully removing the barrel, the hidden number revealed was 5487.
Gordon's latest book provided some interesting information.
Originally sold May 1929 to Momsen-Dunnegan-Ryan Co. East Overland St. at Ochoa El Paso Texas.
We then cross referenced Momsen-Dunnegan-Ryan Co. and some very interesting information was found.
According to Gordon's book, and if I interpreted it right, it was 1 of 14 shipped to them and sold to Hyman Saul Lebman !!!!
Of these 14, #6315 was recovered after the shoot out at Little Bohemia !
I shared this find with OCM. Sandy and his cohorts wasted no time in finding some additional information, that I hope
they will chime in and share.
It's things like this that keep it interesting and keeps "The Hunt" going.
Thanks again to everyone that has helped thus far, and for keeping the history alive
Hopefully more to follow on this Colt in the future !
