Colt Woodsman Second Series Model .22 LR - Woodsman 2nd Series Match Target .22LR 4.5" Blue, Serial Number 78371-S (1950)

Woodsman 2nd Series Match Target .22LR 4.5" Blue, 99.9%IB / NIB,  SN#78371-S (1950) Coltmaster rear sight model with mint correct original multi-colored injection molded plastic grips w/thumbrest, mint bore, correct magazine, original instruction sheet, no test target,  both grip adapters, and original grease paper in near mint (but oily) correct brown fliptop box with label intact and in the never seen cardboard sleeve they were originally shipped in which is unmistakenly numbered to the gun (this is the only one I have seen in all my years collecting Woodsmans).  This grip coloration in injection molded plastic only appeared on guns in 1950 for about half the year's production before they changed to the dark brown grips and thus are generally considered to be hard to find.  Gun exhibits some extremely minor surface scratches on the barrel from probably the original bore brush -- hardly noticeable.  Gorgeous rare version (probably the rarest) of the 4.5" Match Target.  Gun is strikingly MINT and unmistakenly unfired!
