The original thumb-safety and smooth plastic trigger are included. The slide to frame fit has very little play. The trigger is crisp. We did not fire this firearm. As with all used firearms, it may need a thorough cleaning to meet your maintenance standards.
Box, Paperwork & Accessories: This pistol comes in a blue plastic Colt box with serial matching label, an assortment of factory paperwork including manual and orange “stop sign” hang tag, cable lock, a single 7-round blued steel magazine, marked “COLT / 45 AUTO”, “C”, and with a rampant colt, and the original thumb-safety and trigger. The magazine shows minor operational wear with intact feed lips and a strong spring.
Our Assessment: This is a Colt New Agent Lightweight, similar to an Officer’s-model 1911-style pistol but with trench-style low profile, quick-acquisition sights. This example is in Excellent condition with little sign of use. The pistol comes with its original box and paperwork. This gives the manual of arms, crisp trigger and powerful .45 cartridge of the full-size 1911 in a small package that will make for a great concealed carry or home defense pistol.
