I have wanted to own a Pre-war Colt for as long as I can remember. I saw this one at a LGS and couldn’t pass it up. Colt Official Police from 1937. All original, and in decent shape. Lockup is perfect! I’m just waiting for some cylinder shims to show up so I can remove a little of the endplay; then I’m off to the range!! Fixed sights of course, but I have a feeling that they will be very close to dead on!398EB5C0-903C-441B-8BC3-D9C8AF8A6378.jpegImage Enlarger

Well, rwsem, you were right; dead nutz at 25 yards. As much as I like the look of the original service grips, I needed to upgrade to target grips to get a better purchase on this revolver. I found these Herrett's Python grips on eBay which fit the Official Police frame perfectly, then added a set of Pre-war medallions. Great shooting revolver!IMG_E1133.jpgImage Enlarger
