I bought this gun a few years back at a gun show for $400. I did not notice until later when reading about them more the A inside of a diamond on the frame signifies that the gun was produced by Colt to fulfill a contract for the Belgian Army. This weapon itself was produced in 1917 and likely was not sent overseas to the Belgian Government, but sold commercially in the US.

Yes, I first saw that when looking up more info on the 1903 on that site and I realized "Hey, my gun has the A in a diamond on it!". Which is neat. I have seen on a few other places it cited that the A was meant to make the Belgian contract pistols. However, like I said, there was apparently a contract overrun and A marked guns were sold commercially in the US. I could find out for sure from Colt where it was shipped from their factory but it will cost me. My money is on this one being a contract overrun gun.
