Colt .455 Eley New Service
« on: March 02, 2013, 07:02:47 am »
This is my Colt New Service that I picked up last year.  I believe it's WWI British purchased Colt.

See: Clasifieds here on CasCity.








Listen!  Do you hear that?  The roar of Cannons and the screams of the dying.  Ahh!  Music to my ears.

Nice pistol!  Mine is pretty much identical, but has been converted to .45 Colt.

I've just bought one, vintage 1915 without government property marks.  It is thought to be a Canadian officers personal weapon.  Ser No. is 732xx.

NEAT!!   I will be looking around for a spare cylinder to allow ammo flexibility.  I wonder if a 1917 cylinder would work as I have a ton of 45ACP cases.

Nice Looking Piece.  I'm afraid that I'll have to sell mine to cover some of my bills.
