Colt Offical police 38sp
Well Dragging my feet today while working so i could stop by Fav gunstore i made it there right at open and what do they have but a nice Colt wheelie had to check it out ..
Well long story short i slapped it one layaway for some crazy reason they dont want us buying guns in the van or in uniform dang funny rule ya ask me ...
Now to get a day off to go pick it up and go to the wonderfull police station to get it checked in since they will only do it tues-thursday and i of course am Working then ..
Gun looks pretty much like the one on this auction here.. Colt Wheelie :krank2:
It's a shame that Colt revolvers don't feel like they fit my hand.
I'm not even sure exactly why.
I've only ever owned two. A Dick Special & a big OLD .45 Long Colt military revolver.
I traded them both off.
They were wonderfully built & "smooth as silk" but I could never get either to point naturally for me.
I'm sorry that I traded them though 'cause I sort of miss not having them around.
Thanks i really want a trooper and a python both nickle plated maybe one day
That’s kind of funny the way Colt chose to name their guns back then. Way back then when the .38 Special was first invented by S&W it was called the
.38 S&W Special cartridge. But when Colt made a gun chambered to fire the .38 S&W Special cartridge the last thing they wanted to do was to put S&W on the barrel of their gun. So the decided to solve the problem by calling it the Colt Official police 38sp. Nice gun I had a Colt Agent 2” as a back up when I first became a cop. I liked the way it fit my hand.
Ooo Hears a Question i just thought of as steel back then wasnt what it is today should i only shot lead though this Thing the Serial # puts it round 1937-38
An Official Police will handle jacketed ammo just fine. I would be a little leery of feeding it a lot of +P stuff, but other than that any normal .38 Spl round should be OK.
