I've got a family heirloom .41 Army Special S/N 315*** and I can't seem to find any online services that can tell me when it was made. I do know that the last patent date stamped on the barrel is July 4, 1905. Any help would be appreciated.

I believe Colt can help you but hold on to your wallet as the cost is $100 dollars I think. If you belong to the NRA they might be able to help as well at no cost
