    Hi All

    Here are some of my New York City Police Dept. revolvers I used on patrol many years ago.

    The bottom two are not NYPD they are HD and range guns, all my 10's and 64's are redone by Smith and Wesson, Combat revolver package and refinished. I love DAO revolvers.

    Very nice. Where they all issued to you? You must have served for a long time to be issued the same gun more than once. I commend you on purchasing your old issued gun when given the chance.

    We had to purchase them in the NYPD equipment section, even the one that was issued, we could purchase any time, so I picked up a few along the way.:)

    Thanks for sharing. A part of me wishes I had "grandfathered" some of my revolvers in 1997, when my employer went virtually all-auto for duty handguns. I can (and do) still carry revolvers for back-up and off-the-clock purposes.

    I will admit, however, that my present duty P229 and spare mags are a more efficient use of duty belt space, especially with the mandated Taser having been added as an additional burden.

    Nice collection! One question, is there much variation in the triggers from gun to gun or they all generally the same? You may be the best person to ask that ? I have always wondered about the consistency of these conversions.

    Why all the bobed hammers? Was it city policy that they be rendered DAO or personal preferance?

    Trigger pulls are the same, factory main spring, ( wolf trigger rebound spring 16lbs) . NYPD used stock springs , I just added the Wolf 16lbs rebound spring.

    NYPD as of (If my memory is still working) January 1988 all revolvers purchased or issued are double action only.

    The Model 64's DAO (NY-1's) arrived in 1988.

    The NY-1's are great guns, I never felt a bad one that came from our equipment section.

    So to make them DAO-only, did they modify the lockwork so that there was no full-cock notch, or did they just bob the hammer spur?

    I took top shot in class honors at an LFI-1 course using a 4" NY-1 (DAO 64 w/bead blast) just like the ones in your photo. I'm sure it annoyed the 1911 and G22 guys.

    I also have a GPNY (DAO bead blast GP100 in .38spec only, for NYPD contract) that I bought recently just because I am also a fan of DAO/bead blast .38s

    One of my holy grails remains a clean 3" round butt NY-1; If I saw one on gunbroker, or something, you would hear wind rushing off my hand moving the mouse to the "buy" button...

    True DAO, no notch internally.

    Sal1911A1,

    First brother, let me thank you for your years of service, then let me say what a fine collection you have. 2 of the most beloved guns I have are from former partners, a model 10 from a deceased friend, and a model 36 from my back up partner from a bordering jurisdiction. I also have an LAPD Detective's leather paddle holster for the model 10 that I'll never part with, (I can see Joe Friday wearing this in my mind). Stay safe!:cool:

    That's a nice collection. A couple months ago one of the NYPD 4" S&W Model 64's DAO revolvers showed up for sale in a local gunstore. I confirmed that it was one of the NYPd specimens. It had a very nice action job on it. And though it had a lot of holster wear (which isn't that big of a deal with stainless steel) it was in good condition mechanically. I wanted it, but just didn't have the money at that point. It sold a few days later. Oh well. I'm envious.
