    Share some Colt love - a picture thread

    Alas, the past year has been a little dry in terms of firearm purchases for me. My wife has been sick and I've not been able to add Colts to the stable. So... I'm left to drool over Colt firearms owned by others. Show some Colt love. Post some pictures of your Colts!! I'll start... this a a Colt Police Positive in .38 S&W with a born date of 1923.



    Got a Colt? Let's see 'em!!

    Took this Colt family pic about 4 years ago:

    Share some Colt love - a picture thread-colt-family-pic.jpg

    I've since added the .41 LC Model 1877 "Thunderer":

    ...and the Model 1892, also in .41 LC:

    Coltness on hand here ... well all that will be admitted to. An accumulation of trash and treasures rather than a true collection of quality Colts and small compared to some on Colt Forum.


    The 1911-gun tribe crowned by a Model 1905 .45. Colt guns except for an imposter Remington Rand right second row from top. Under the Model 1905: 2nd row - World War I issue Model 1911 Augusta Arsenal rehab'ed, Early 1944 Remington Rand 1911A1, 3rd row - 1947 Government Model, 1967 Government Model, 1979 Gold Cup, 4th row - 1981 Government Model 9mm, 2014 Government Model, 2016 Delta Elite 10mm



    1905 Single Action Army 4 3/4-inch .38-40



    1971 New Frontier .22 Long Rifle w/ accessory .22 Magnum cylinder



    BUG 1922 Colt Model 1908 .25



    1915 Army Special .38 Special (mechanically rehab'ed as a Colt action learning experience - with proper replacement stocks added since - still ugly)



    1973 SP-1 .223/5.56



    1910 New Service Model 1909 .45 Colt (The Colt New Service is the personal favorite model Colt revolver of all)



    1966 Detective Special .38 Special (personally preferred over any J-Frame Smith & Wesson)



    1913 Police Positive .32 New Police (.32 S&W Long) Tightness and accuracy belies the shabbiness. Actually a great shootin' revolver.



    1905 New Pocket (transitional) .32 Long Colt

    1957 Officers Model Match .38 Special

    1928 Woodsman Target .22 Long Rifle



    Fourth Model Derringer .22 Short



    top: 1978 Python .357 Magnum, bottom: 1953-54 3 5 7 .357 Magnum (the better revolver of the two)

    September 1918 New Service Model 1917 .45 ACP (held for long years and perhaps the most fired Colt revolver on hand)



    New Army military contract Model 1901 .38 Long Colt (longest owned Colt revolver -since 1978)



    1932 Bankers Special .38 Colt New Police (.38 S&W)



    1943 military contract Commando (the Official Police model goes to World War II)



    Oh, and Colt revolvers are a strong No. 2 with me. I like Smith & Wesson (at least the classic traditional ones) best of all.

    Back to you Scotty.

    Your Colt Police Positive is way cute. A fine, smooth, and sturdy action and I like the old .38 S&W (.38 Colt New Police) cartridge. In a self-defense situation I'd rather have your Police Positive loaded with soft lead slugs than any .380 with any .380 load on the planet.

    Well ... I wouldn't mind a Colt Model 1908 .380, but more for collecting than using.

    You started a grand thread.

    OK, here are mine.
    (I've already posted all of these elsewhere, I think.)

    From about 1912, in .380 ACP, we have my current EDC, a 75th birthday gift from Jean. The old-style engraving was done by an island friend.
    The grips are faux (powder and polymer) ivory:

    This is an all-steel shortie .45 that's only partly from Colt's. The grip panels are kitchen-counter acrylic. It used to be my EDC:

    Share some Colt love - a picture thread-img_2024.jpg

    And finally, here are my two competition pistols, one only partly Colt's. The grips on both are buffalo horn.
    One was altered to a shorter trigger, to fit Jean when she was learning to shoot:
