I'm honestly not even sure what that means, and if I did I don't have the gun anywhere nearby to verify that.

It probably has less than 100rds through it.

Find any actual Colt 1911 with an external extractor and it will probably be worth 6 figures + .

If that's your PHOTO, it suggests that you're LEFT HANDED. "If" this is true, learn to shoot right handed, or learn to tilt the pistol slightly "clock-wise" to about 1:00. Do not limp wrist.

The extractor is internal.
