A couple of Colts showed up
« on: June 28, 2019, 03:35:43 pm »
Been  awful busy with trades the last couple of months, but it has been fun! Anyhoo, I got two Colts today that could sure work in ZS. First, a 1933 built New Service in .45ACP, think 1917 with a high polish and no lanyard loop. Solid as a rock, the finish is really good, can't wait to get it to the range.
Second is a true mud puppy. A 1920 Pocket Positive with an unusual 6" barrel. Sadly neglected, broken grips, finish gone and hadn't been cleaned or lubed in decades. Well, finally got some fossilized electric tape remains off the back strap, cleaned and lubed the little beast and put some NOS Jay Scott MOP grips on it. It's now decently smooth and will get tested out Monday along with it's brother.

Yup, I'm that DeaconKC from Surplus Rifle

I also added a Colt to the fray Circa 1919 Police Positive 38   (38 Colt) about 95%

I wasn't exactly looking for it when it found me from the modest collection of a retired Police Captain

It came with a nice Brauer Bros duty holster with an 1928 date

That's in amazing shape for it's age.  I'm assuming it's chambered in .38 Colt New Police (.38 S&W with a colt head stamp).  I don't think they made these in .38 short or long Colt.
