Didn't Colt make pistols for the Norwegian or Swedish army right before WW2?
Colt made a run of 700 1911 pistols for the Norwegians ca. 1915-1917, then the Norwegians started making their own .45s at Kongsberg Arsenal from about 1917 to 1945, then again did a run of 20 in the 80s as a feasibility study. (I saw one example at a gun show in Florida in the mid 80s, and boy was it crude.)
