The number of National Match pistols produced is open to speculation. They were not given a special serial number, nor were they identified in the production ledgers. They fall randomly in the serial number range from C162000 (1932) to C215083 (1940) which covers about 53,000 pistols. However, approximately 25,000 of those pistols were shipped overseas and 6,575 were transferred to Colts military contract in 1942, which leaves about 21,500 pistols available for the American market.
The National Match proved to be popular with military shooting teams as well as civilians. Several batches were known to have been purchased for competitive use. The Coast Guard bought seven pistols (C162997 C163003) in 1932 and another batch of six in 1940. Also in 1940 the Marine Corps bought 15 (C201076 C201090). Individual officers sometimes purchased Government Models or National Match pistols privately. At least two were shipped to CCC Camps in the 1930s and one is known to have gone to an officer in the Panama Canal Zone.
