    New Purchase

    I've been in beautiful North Cuba....better known as the City of Miami....for the past few days due to work demands. Out of the constant back-and-forth trips to Miami was this new acquisition:



    ....for the uninitiated, it's a Colt Agent .38 Special....and here's another "beauty shot" of my new gal:



    ....ain't she pretty?

    I purchased her for all of $275 from a coworker. It came with the original box (with styrofoam inserts) in somewhat tattered shape, the original bore brush, instruction manual (dated 1981), and a booklet titled "the Colt Companion."

    She hasn't been fired much by my coworker who was once a NJ police officer and then a Deputy U.S. Marshal prior to joining my agency....but she's certainly getting fired a bit by me!

    When I do I promise to post a range report.

    Out.

    She looks very nice

    Looks well worth the $275 you paid. Will be waiting on the range report.

    She looks like a real handful

    Makes the travelling worth it, doesn't it?! Very nice wheelie and nic pics too, that's the first time I've seen an Agent that's shown perspective to the size - it's a bit larger than I would've thought.

    How about I PM you my mailing address later so you can send it to me for Christmas?

    Nothing looks better than a Colt revolver!

    OMO, YMMV!

    Congratulations on a fine acquisition!

    You earned yourself a nice treat. Colt sure did make a nice wheelgun. That's a nice Agent. A Classic revolver.
    Needs Ivory grips though.

    Nice Find!!!!!
    I LOVE IT when I see our fellow Forumites get a great deal on a gun buy!! That's a REALLY NICE gun ya got there!! They sell at the store for around 450.00 with the box and papers!
    I'm sure it's a keeper and hope you'll find to keep it as original as possible, as they shoot well right out of the box, as you'rs appears to be...
    we'll be looking for a range report from you in the near future.. Try some Fed Premium 125 gr JHP from it when you touch off some rounds.. great for carry purposes in the slightly older guns ... not too much pressure, as they fall within pressure specs for the Classics, as yours is..

    <Perk> did I hear the word "IVORY"
    A "Sammy Spade" Dick Special for sure
