    Is the rear sight marked with a name?

    Beautiful gun. GLWS.

    Puts my Walther-made, Colt-stamped .22lr 1911 to shame

    It’s a (service model)ACE they all have floating chambers. Only the very early commercial model ACE model did not. 193? To 194?

    The rear sight is an Accro sight which was standard on Aces and most adjustable sighted Colts. Except when they used the Elliason rear on Gold Cups and some older Pythons and Woodsman etc.
    I have owned several Colt Aces and conversion units, sure am surprised at asking prices on these .22s. Tempting me to sell one! It looks to be in great shape though. Has it seen enough rounds to have any cycling issues with lead in the floating chamber? Their one issue IMO.

    I don’t think it has. My dad is the original owner and he rarely shoots. I’ve had it for a few years and I’ve never shot it :(

    I have a ACE and have never had that problem. If you clean your gun after a day of shooting and never let it build up you’ll never have a problem. It’s not a issue just clean your gun:s0013:

    I polished mine to a high gloss and it eliminated 95% of feeding issues. The last 5% was aftermarket mags.

    IIRC....the sights were know as:

    COLT Ellison sights.
