Gold Bullet Member and Noted Curmudgeon
Got the Colt Police Positive 38 Special (barrel marking) for the wife (she saw and handled it and liked it, i told her I'd get it for her, she was surprised today, thought I'd been kidding). Serial on frame at crane cut-out below barrel and on crane (111488), Colt Hartford address on top of barrel, rampant Colt on left side plate, black hard rubber grips with Colt in oval. About 60-70% high polish blue on frame, barrel and cylinder more wear. Very thin, fine drag line. In perfect time and locks tight. Nice little piece that seems to fit her well. Very nice, smooth trigger - the did fit them up carefully in the old days. I'd say it has been carried quite a bit, shot less..
