COLT 38 SPL Officers Model Heavy 6" Barrel-NICE!
Here we have used Colt .38 Special Officers model with a heavy 6" barrel that is in nice condition and comes with a vintage Viking leather holster. Serial number is 640913 which gives us a manufacturing year of circa 1940's. This is a single and double action swing-out cylinder revolver calibered for the .38 special. The top of the barrel is marked “Colt’s P.T.F.A. Mfg. Co. Hartford, CT U.S.A. / Pat'd Aug. 5. 1884. July 4. 1905. Oct. 5. 1926”. The left side of the barrel is marked "Officers Model 38 / Heavy Barrel". There is a rampant Colt logo on the left side plate. The crane cut is marked "640913 / W" and the crane is marked "640913". Comes with a pinned target front sigh and a rear dovetail set notch sight. The grips are checkered walnut with silver Colt medallions on either side (these are two pieced grips)
This revolver is in great overall condition with only cosmetic issues to report. There are several light scratches to the blued finish on both barrel and receiver, with more wear to the edge of the muzzle. The end of the barrel near the muzzle is showing silver from years of use. The inside of the barrel is somewhat dirty with very pronounced rifling. Pistol grips are in good condition with more wear showing near the bottom of both sides. Has a nice tight lock up and feels great. The leather holster is marked "Hand Made By Viking Mexico 67" and is fair condition with some areas of discoloration and several scratches. All is well documented in photos so please have a look and inquire at will. This is a very nice vintage pistol that will not hang around long at this price, so start the bidding and good luck!
