Colt Woodsman Match Target pair, factory “C” engraved, gold, lettered, cased, 1983, unfired

As created in 1983 and fully supported by factory letters, this extraordinary cased pair of Colt Woodsman Match Target .22 LR pistols stands at the very pinnacle of the gunmaker’s craft. Serial 310375-S has a 4.5-inch barrel, while 058030-S wears a 6-inch barrel. Otherwise, as they were mated from inception, the pistols are identical in every respect. ENGRAVING: As flawlessly executed by Colt Master Engraver George Spring, the Grade C (in period Colt-speak, 75 percent coverage by a designated Master Engraver), a delicate floral and scroll extends along the slides, frames and flutes, then repeats on the lugs. In turn, these fields are accented by fine gold wire to such a high level of perfection it defies description. STOCKS: Each pistol showcases target stocks (right hand presentation) shot through with heavy figure. CASE: As lettered, the original walnut presentation case features a French-fitted interior and has the “Colt Custom” medallion inlaid on the outer lid. CONDITION: Near perfect and absent evidence of firing since delivery, only slight indications of handling are present. Magazines are proper. The case exterior has two minor edge impressions and two modest scratches on the lid. Interior is equally fine. (It is possible the case has been relined, as the factory letters seem to indicate lining color “Francis blue”.) Each set of stocks has minor wear (rubs and modest chipping under the finish) on the edges. FACTORY LETTERS: Each pistol is supported by an included individual letter detailing the features as well as the pairing. The price is firm and lawaway is available. $22,500 plus shipping.

A consummate hunter, spectacular all-around shot and true connoisseur of fine firearms, his interests spanned the full spectrum of the shooting sports. In 1942, Tom enlisted in the Marine Corps. He served in units that scouted and destroyed isolated enemy communication sites on a number of Pacific islands, eventually receiving a battlefield commission. After concluding his service, he attended UCLA and later joined the fledgling Petersen’s Publishing Company in 1958. A series of promotions led to him to become vice president of the Petersen’s Publishing Outdoor Division, which thrived under his leadership. Tom Siatos was a mentor, visionary, leader, father figure and a true original. We will never see his like again. The price is firm and layaway is available. $1,000 plus shipping.

Jack O’Connor’s Colt National Match Mid-Range .38 Special, factory letter confirms direct shipment, 99 percent condition

For many hunters and shooters old enough to lament the gray in their beard, the legendary Jack O’Connor still stands as the foremost authority on all things related to firearms. O’Connor is the sheep hunter’s sheep hunter, one of the earliest winners of the prestigious Weatherby Award and the famed nemesis of a big-hatted cowboy named Elmer. Gone from us now some 40 years, O’Connor is still widely remembered as the champion of the .270 Winchester cartridge and, in error, as the fellow who originally hung the phrase “Grand Slam” on the taking of all four species of North American wild sheep.

O’Connor was a rifleman, to be sure, and was also pretty handy with a shotgun. He even went so far as to order a Colt National Match Mid-Range .38 Special and tell his friend, Henry Kaufman, “I thought sometime I might want to do a little target shooting“. He wrote about this pistol in his Getting the Range column that appeared in the February, 1966 issue of Outdoor Life.

Jack never used the Colt very much and sold it Kaufman in the mid-1970s. Henry eventually let someone talk him out of the pistol, and in turn was purchased by the current owner in 1994. It is supported by a Colt factory letter confirming direct shipment to O’Connor on March 26, 1965. As such, it is a legitimate piece of shooting history.

CONDITION: Serial number 4874-MR includes the original magazine, Elliason adjustable rear sight, flat mainspring housing and remains in at least 99 percent overall condition. Only light indications of handling and range wear are present.

DOCUMENTATION: A Colt factory letter provides ironclad proof of original ownership. A black and white photograph of the pistol with serial number and “Colt National Match cal. .38 Sp. WC. This was the only pistol I ever bought from Jack O’Connor” on reverse. The photo is attached to a signed letter dated July 3, 1992, from Henry Kaufman to Bob Cunningham (the second purchaser) discussing the pistol and its sale. In turn, Cunningham added notes to this letter on January 29, 1994, when he acknowledged the sale to the present owner. Finally, a letter from Kaufman, dated “July 3”, supports Kaufman’s primary document in casual form. All documents, including a photocopy of the February 1966 issue of Outdoor Life are included. Additionally, the present owner will prepare a personalized letter to the purchaser detailing the pistol’s history upon request.

INCLUSIONS: One additional aftermarket magazine. No box or papers. The price is firm and layaway is available. $6,000 plus shipping.

Colt Single Action Army .45 Colt, 4.75-inch, early second generation, 1958, 19597SA, spectacular walnut grips and tune by Hoenig, estate of Tom Siatos

Colt Single Action Army .45 Colt. From the estate of Tom Siatos and made in 1958, this early Second Generation revolver wears serial 19597SA (both frame and cylinder). Features include a 4.75-inch barrel and color case frame. The estate attributes the screwless walnut grips and superb action tuning to George Hoenig. CONDITION: The bore is all but new. Barrel blue is about 97 percent with only light holster wear and cylinder blue is about 95 percent with slight traces of turning. Frame colors have softened to about 85 percent and the bluing over the grip frame is about 95 percent. Mechanics, including the clicks, are strong and the cylinder locks up tight. Given the presumed association with Hoenig, along with a very modest softening of the barrel markings and close examination of the grip frame, it is reasonable to assume the revolver was refinished at the same time the other work was completed. TOM SIATOS (1923-2008) spent the majority of his life in close association with firearms and hunting. His professional contributions, tremendous category knowledge, bottomless enthusiasm and bold personality influenced the firearms industry and outdoor media to such a degree that it remains a viable force today.

TOM SIATOS (1923-2008) spent the majority of his life in close association with firearms and hunting. His professional contributions, tremendous category knowledge, bottomless enthusiasm and bold personality influenced the firearms industry and outdoor media to such a degree that it remains a viable force today. Tom was the second editor of Guns & Ammo Magazine. As such, he was responsible for the general tone of the iconic publication. A consummate hunter, spectacular all-around shot and true connoisseur of fine firearms, his interests spanned the full spectrum of the shooting sports. In 1942, Tom enlisted in the Marine Corps. He served in units that scouted and destroyed isolated enemy communication sites on a number of Pacific islands, eventually receiving a battlefield commission. After concluding his service, he attended UCLA and later joined the fledgling Petersen’s Publishing Company in 1958. A series of promotions led to him to become vice president of the Petersen’s Publishing Outdoor Division, which thrived under his leadership. Tom Siatos was a mentor, visionary, leader, father figure and a true original. We will never see his like again. The price is firm and layaway is available. $1,000 plus shipping.
