    Serial number on Colt Official Police

    The serial number is 926 on the cylinder release, crane, and frame. How is this number read (first three or last three digits in serial number)? The revolver appears to be an Army Special but the barrel is marked Official Police, does this make sense?

    Re: Serial number on Colt Official Police

    The serial numbers are on the frame, crane and the inside of the sideplate. Only three digits? What caliber is it? Official Police and the Army Special from whence they came all had six-digit serials except for 22LR which began in 1930 with separate serial run stating with 1. So, if it is 22LR it could be a 1930 first year 22 OP. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    And welcome to the forum. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Looking at Zulu6's New Army and finally reading cylinder release aka latch in your post, I will defer to the era experts, thinking you may have a rebarrel.

    Re: Serial number on Colt Official Police

    The Official Police and the Army Special are really one of the same, just a different time period and different barrel marking. If your serial number is a three digit it must be a .22 caliber as they were introduced in 1930 and began with serial number one. Please indicate the caliber.

    Re: Serial number on Colt Official Police

    The caliber is .38-200 (as marked on the barrel) and I shoot .38 Spl through it. If the serial number should be 6 digits is there another place to see more of the serial number without taking the sideplate off? Thanks.
