    Colt Police Positive Target .22 lr

    I have the opportunity to purchase a Colt Police Positive
    Target .22lr which appears to be in 90-95% original
    condition. It has walnut colt medallion grips and
    a 6 inch barrel.

    I am not familiar with this model and would like
    to know how many were made and if they
    would have any future collector value.

    I personally think all the Colt swing out double action models have been sleepers and are just beginning to come into their own. May just be me. Thanks, Joe

    I think they already have collector value. The PP Targets were made in two frame sizes -- the earlier G Frame and the later heavier C Frame. The G Frame guns were chambered in .22, .22 WRF, ,32 Colt (rare), .32 Colt New Police. The C Frame guns were chambered in 22., .22 WRF, and .32 Colt New Police. I think the .22 chambered guns are the most common. They are great shooting revolvers. The quality of these guns is simply outstanding. When people as for a great shooting .22 Colt revolver I am always amazed that these PP Targets don't get more mention.

    Without a doubt, one of the best .22 Colt target revolvers made. Nice ones are already hard to come by. If the price is reasonable...grab it.

    I have a couple of the PPTs and have to agree with the previous posts and add that the PPTs have to be the most fun to shoot of all Colt DA revolvers. With proper care, you can shoot it all you want to and still have a valuable collectible. I hope you are able to purchase the gun, you won't regret it.

    I don't think you'll regret it. I got my first Colt PP Target (1929 vintage) earlier this year and fired it enough to know that with practice I would eventually shoot it better than my S&Ws. I keep hoping to find the time that will let me perfect that process.

    Here's the pic:



    The blue's a little thin here and there, and there is a tiny wobble to the trigger, but I can get it tight again and don't mind the age. The gun looks better at 80 than I do at 65.

    Go for it. If by some improbable chance it turns out you don't like it as much as you thought you would, I doubt you would have any problem unloading it in a classified on this forum.

    Look for one chambered in .22 l.r. and numbered after SN 39,761, with an embedded head cylinder.

    I took a another look at the revolver a couple of days ago.

    This Police Positive Target is chambered in .22 lr, 6 inch BBL, and
    walnut grips with Colt medallion.

    I noticed the serial number range is 47,000, and has a recessed cylinder,
    the bluing is at least 95%, appears to be original bluing, all markings are
    sharp and clear.

    It's beginning to look like its to good to pass up.
