I BOUGHT A PISTOL TODAY.. Man is that fun to say.. I have a small gold silver pawn store by the house.. in the past i've stopped and checked out what they had, for the first time they had a winner.. for me anyway.. its an OLD Colt Army special.. has about 70%-80% of bluing still good.. based on the 41 frame, which i think later became the I frame, i say that based on it being BIG and having the two cut away areas on the frame inside of the trigger guard... it's in 38 spl.. this was huge to me, i have a couple of 45's and 22's but needed another 38 to go with my L frame for range stuff.. this is a 6" bbl.. and lousy old sights, but beautiful worn in action.. it's a 475XXX serial which puts it at 1920 mfg date.. used the same source to check on the REAL old 32 pocket that i bought Gloria and it's a 1896 mfg date or 117 years old compared to my new one which is only 94 by comparison... i've said before that there is something so cool about firing these old guns.. really true.. course you can't use modern hi power ammo, this is a case for standard 38 spl, no plus P's, but outside of that fine. just so happens i have a bunch of 38 rounds in stock. from my pard who rolls padre plinkers for me with a 9MM or .355 light weight bullet.. these will work fine for standard 158 grn lead round nose or 148 wad cutters, but +P stuff is a no no.. The frame is showing wear but the grips are those great pre war Colt bake light plastic, and perfect.. all in all a score i'm real happy with.. and can't wait till i can get the new guy to the range.. in edit.. sorry for the lousy picture.. i took one of both sides, marked them colt l and colt r the r had a big red circle around it.. which is lame cause it was the ony one really "good".. also an important note on price.. these go from 900 NIB to 400 NRA good.. i bought this one at 350.. it was marked at 375.. considering the wear on the gun .. that price is probably a fair figure.. mention this as we have another thread that talks about $..
