The Colt 1902 Military model was a more popular pistol than some folks might expect, and remained in production well after the introduction of the various .45ACP caliber Colts. It was also rather popular in Mexico – shipments to Mexican dealers accounted for about 2400 guns, roughly 13% of total 1902 Military production. Many of these went to the Mexican military, including 800 specially ordered with mother of pearl grips and a Mexican national crest engraved on the top of the slide. This is an example of a gun from that order – definitely not the look you would expect for a formal military contract!
