Additional Information
Introduced in 1908, the Colt Police Positive Special is a small frame, double-action revolver with a 6-round cylinder, chambered for .38 Special. The Police Positive Special was intended primarily for sale to law enforcement agencies and enjoys the distinction of being Colt's most widely produced revolver design.

Produced with fine carbon steel, this Police Positive Special features Colt's characteristic highly polished surfaces and comes with Colt's signature bright royal blued finish. Built on Colt's "D" frame, this 4" barreled model weighs a scant 23 oz. The Positive Special also incorporates Colt's "Positive Lock" safety which prevents the firing pin from hitting the primer unless the trigger is deliberately pulled. The pistol's sights consist of a blade front with a fixed iron open rear sight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Colt Police Positive Special (USED) Like the title implies, the colt was a used gun and my goodness it came in pretty rough shape. The surface rusting and previous pitting was quite obvious. The real horror was when I took the grip off and wowzers, the rust was pretty bad. After lots and lots of scrubbing the entire thing down I was able to get it into okay condition. Works fine after some love and care. Be aware, used means USED. You'll probably have to put in some work before it's in satisfactory working order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I ever expected! This is one sweet revolver! I expected a fair amount of wear on a used police revolver, and this one definitely had some wear on the grips and some mild pitting on the outside of the barrel. Probably from being kept inside a holster all the time. Much to my delight, the bore and the chambers were absolutely pristine! The cylinder face showed little if any carbon rings, which leads me to believe this revolver was hardly ever fired! The bluing on the cylinder was excellent, as was the sideplate and sides of the frame! I removed the grip panels and found them to be matching to the gun! I left them off and kept them in a safe place. In their place, I installed a set of new old stock Colt medallion Pachmayr grips that do an excellent job of helping me shoot accurately. I'm so happy I bought this revolver, and I foresee many, many rounds through this gun once .38 Special becomes widely available again!

Was this gun manufactured before 1971? And, if so, do you ship to C&R FFL holders?
