If you call Colt they will tell you when it was made.
None. While there are firearms made to shoot .45 Colt AND .410 shotshells, they are designed and made to do that. A regular .410 shotgun is NOT made to do that safely.
50-1000 USD and up depending on specifics
Automatic Colt Pistol
Automatic Colt Pistol. Colt invented the .45 Auto and thus had the right to name it.
100-1000 USD or so depending on specifics
No, is the short answer. The long answer is a little more complex. The .45 Colt and the .410 share similar base dimensions which make them interchangeable in certain firearms. Usually, however, you find .45 Colt/.410 shotgun combinations, meaning the firearm is designed to shoot .45 Colt, but will also accept .410 shot shells. The Taurus Judge, and Bond Derringer's Snake Slayer are two pistol examples. There are many variations, but the unifying factor is that these guns are designed to handle higher chamber and barrel pressures generated by the .45 Colt cartridge. The barrel of your typical .410 shotgun is very thin in comparison, and is designed to fire shotgun ammunition only. So, if the firearm is specifically designed for it, you can shoot .410 shotgun ammunition through a .45 Colt barrel. You cannot, nor should you attempt, to load a .45 Colt round into a .410 shotgun.
.45 ACP means Automatic Colt Pistol. It IS .45 Auto.
your colt was made in 1918. However, value depends on overall condition of your pistol.....
the judge fires 45 colt which is the same as 45 long colt not to be confused with 45 acp it also fires 410 shot shells
The .45 ACP--which stands for AUTOMATIC COLT PISTOL is used in semiautomatic pistols. The .45 Colt is used in revolvers.
Caliber .45 Automatic Colt Pistol.
It could be any pistol chambered for one of the several handgun calibers in the .45 family. The most famous .45 handguns are actually chambered for different rounds. The Colt model 1873 "Peacemaker" was offered in .45 Colt or "Long Colt" caliber, among other calibers. And the famous Colt model 1911 was sold in a caliber called .45 ACP (automatic Colt pistol). The .45 ACP is not interchangeable with the .45 Long Colt, but they both fire big heavy bullets at similar velocities.
No. But there are revolvers made to shoot .410 shells that also fire .45 Colt cartridges,
Actually, the cartridges are .45 ACP (automatic Colt Pistol) and .45 Colt (the cowboy era revolver cartridge. There is not really a Colt 45 Long. Can a revolver shoot both? Some can- they are chambered for the Colt .45 -but to shoot .45 ACP they need a "half moon clip"- a strip of metal that holds 3 of the shorter .45 ACP cartridges. 2 of those fill a 6 shot revolver. The PISTOL (not revolver) that shoots the .45 ACP cannot shoot the .45 Colt- no groove for the extractor to pull a fired cartridge out of the chamber, and it is too long.
Answer The Colt .45 caliber automatic pistol was accepted as the standard side arm of the US Army and became identified as the Model 1911 Pistol. The bullet developed for use in this new design of automatic pistol was called the .45 ACP or the .45 Automatic Colt Pistol cartridge. It stands for "Automatic Colt Pistol" because it was adopted for the Colt 1911 only by the US army.You get many variants the most prolific being the .45 GAP for glock handguns.It's patented I believe.
You can shoot 45 Long Colt or .410 shot shells with this weapon. 45 ACP rounds will not work properly.
Have it checked over by a good gunsmith before you attmept this.
It should be marked on the gun- something like .410/ 45 Colt.
no it only takes .45 Long Colt and .410 shotshells
No. While there ARE firearms made to fire both the .45 Colt and the .410 shotshell, they were made for that purpose. Never attempt to fire ammo that a firearm was not made to fire.
45 ???? revolver or pistol ????? what is the model ????
Proofhouse.com has Colt sn data.
dissasemble pistol. check on line sites re: cleaning the 45 cal. pistol
NO!!!! 45 Long Colt may fit in the bore, but centerfire pistol cartridges run higher pressures than shotgun, and it could lead to a catastrophic failure.
