Very-collectible 4th Issue "Colt Police Positive" .38 Special single-/double action 6-shot revolver, high-polish blued/unblemished finish, 4" barrel (with "POLICE POSITIVE .38 SPECIAL CTG." stamping on the left side and "COLTS PT. F.A. MFG. CO. HARTFORD, CONN. U.S.A." stamping on the right side), fixed sights (ramp front sight blade; frame-grooved/square notch rear sight with ultra-fine serrations on both sides of the sight groove), serrated hammer, smooth (non-grooved) trigger, radiused barrel muzzle w/chamfered rifling, shrouded ejector rod housing, factory-original checkered walnut grips (with a very small ding or chip on bottom/front of the right grip panel tip). No factory box/papers. This model was produced for only 2 years, 1977-1978, so relatively few were made, compared to quantities of other Colt handgun models produced . According to Colt's online serial number/year of manufacture look-up page, this revolver, having serial number 19612R, was made in 1978.
Gun appears to be unfired, except for factory test-firing. No defects in metal surface, metal polishing, bluing, or on grip panels. Barely-visible line on cylinder and cylinder locking notches from cylinder rotation. There are no signs of usage or wear (except extremely-minor from factory test-firing), e.g., no bluing or metal wear/scuffing of: ejector rod, sides of hammer and trigger (sides of trigger are unblued and polished), cylinder crane-to-frame contact/pivot points, recoil shield, face of firing pin bushing (i.e., no case head brass residue deposited on it from recoil), or the frame due to operation of the cylinder release latch. Perfect cylinder chambers and barrel bore. Rampant Colt stamped on left rear of frame.Typical magnificent Colt quality.
The reason for the no-return policy is because the gun is honestly-described (to the best of my ability) and is exactly as displayed in the photos.
Payment; Shipping; FFL: Guns usually ship within 1 business day after payment posts to bank acct. Credit card payment necessitates an additional 3.5% convenience fee, the cost charged to me by the credit card processing bank. I will need a copy of your dealer's Federal Firearms License (FFL) emailed to either me or to my FFL dealer, or included with your mailed payment because I will need to provide the copy to my FFL dealer for shipping to your dealer for transfer to you. My FFL dealer charges me $55 for transfer paperwork, record keeping, gun packaging, and postal shipping, plus the cost of postal insurance @ $1.50 per $100 valuation.
