    Stopped in the lgs today to check if my 41 Smith had arrived yet (I know I could have just called). Looking at the ones under glass and this one caught my attention. I usually find these in a dismal state and in need of some TLC but this one is seriously nice. After about a half hour of arguing who owes who a favor I walked out pretty happy. Made in 1921.

    Beautiful piece there. You don't often find them in such nice condition. I really like the 32s. Mild report and minimal recoil. Just huge fun to shoot

    Very very nice! I love old Colts. And 32s!

    Mine is a PP Special from about 25 years later.

    Great find! One very nice Police Positive and in .32 Colt New Police! Looks like someone maybe fired a dozen or so rounds through it and then kept it neatly tucked away for the next 100 years!

    I bought it for the sole purpose(for the time being) to accompany one I got from dad. His is the 38 special version. And though my recent acquisition is nice, it pales in comparison to his 1924 example. 1005191943a.jpg

    A fine pair to draw to...two phenomenal looking (and well preserved), Colt revolvers!
