Mfg. for 1907 Army Trials & was 1 of 3 finally considered: Savage, Luger & winning Colt Model 1911.
Approx. 200 mfg. for trials but safety not marked so returned to factory but some “lost” so factory had to make additional pistols. After loosing Army contract Savage purchased them back for about 10 cents on the dollar. They were refinished w/ Savage 2 line marking on top of slide removed & single line added on top of shroud on left side of rib. Savage intended to market them as a lot leaving top of rib available for distributor name. As these were reconditioned used pistols, they were given matte finish as opposed to original gloss finish.
