    Just mention Colts and I'll open the thread for a peek.

    You have some fine ones there too. Covers lots of handgunning needs too. I like them every one.

    The Gold Cup Trophy is a fine target, range gun that could work for self defense.

    The Lawman is a horse of a .357 snub and a really good way to do .357 snub revolvers. Makes a lot more sense than super-stunted 5-shot flea-weight revolvers chambered for .357 Magnum. Colt ought to still be making them. There's a Mark III Lawman 2-inch in a pawn shop at a town nearby that I've pondered over for more than a year now. It has Pachmyrs rather than the original stocks which what has held me back. The original stocks for a 2-inch Lawman are unique to that gun, fitting no other model Colt revolver and are impossible to find this day and age.

    I'm really warming up to the notion of 1911s in 9mm and have long wanted a .38 Super chambered 1911 to play with for handloading fun. The .38 Super ought to be more popular than it is. I'm envious of yours.

    I saw some factory grips on Ebay for the snubbie Lawman. They have been on there for atleast 6 months.

    Trivia quiz for you Bryan. Do you know the reason Colt is now rollmarking their Super's slides with .38 Super instead of the original Super .38, but the barrels are still marked Super .38?

    I've not heard. I would have said it's because they have no respect for tradition.

    I'd still take one of the "mismarked" ones mind you.

    Colt let the “Super .38” trademark lapse, USFA picked it up, Colt can’t use it as the model name anymore, even though they originated it. They can however mark their barrels as such, and USFA can’t do anything about that, because Super .38 ACP is the actual and correct name for the cartridge itself. More useless information.


    I'd take one of the "mismarked" ones in heartbeat too!

    Those are some beautiful guns. It is a shame that Colt doesn't make that revolver any more.
