Customer Question

I have a Colt 1911 Government Model with serial #NU19938. I am no expert but it all looks original except the serial # looks strange to me. The NU looks like it could have possibly been stamped separately from the number, just possibly. I can't find anything that explains what the NU means.

Good afternoon,
My name is ***** ***** I am happy to help! Let me get my references together and look this up. In the meantime, do you have a photo of the gun that I could see, with the serial number?

I am at my office and don't have a photo available now. I'll be glad to forward one to you after I get home tonight.
Expert:  ProShooter replied 8 months ago.

That would be great. You can actually post the photo directly here. I'm thinking that NU is one of the more recent serial number prefixes, but I'd like to see the photo for a point of reference. Just reply back whenever you can and I will be notified.
