    Colt New Police, Police Positive, and Police Positive Special photo thread

    I don't know if anyone has done one of these yet or not. But I am going to start one on these fine but much underappreciated revolvers.

    Both of these are from 1908. The short one has been rebarreled with a Bankers Special barrel.



    Here's one in an Audley holster I scored for $5

    Here's a Police Positive form 1922. Other than some staining near near the Colt Stallion from sleeping in a leather holster for several decades I don't think this one has shot more than 50 rounds. There is nary a cylinder ring. She lives in exile in a "free state" while I try to figure out how to get her on my NY license.

    I apologize for the photo. This was my first attempt at gun photography. (click on the thumbnail)

    Some "New Police" Models.....

    All of these are in .32 caliber & were police issued:



    They are from : NYPD, Hartford CT PD, New Orleans PD, Indianapolis IN PD (nickle), Troy NY PD (3 1/2" bbl.), Rochester NY PD, Ottawa Ont. PD (lanyard ring), Washington DC PD, West Orange NJ PD, Cinncinnati OH PD, & Albany NY PD.

    Here is one more from 1902 Detroit PD.



    Happy New Year!!!

    Cool old revolvers one and all.

    Fun to read off all the P.D.s in the grouping, cda926.


    My .32 Police Positive from 1913 isn't much to look at but has proved to be a surprisingly good shooter.




    Do Police Positive Special .38 Special revolvers count? Here's a shabby one from 1921 (top) and a worn one from 1914 (bottom). I was able to repair the action on the 1921 gun to at least work properly. It was purchased to learn on.




    How about a derivative of the Police Positive, in the form of a Banker's Special, lettered to Los Angeles in March of 1932.

    Yes they all count. Anything with "Police Positive" or 'New Police" on the barrel. Great looking guns guys. I'm very envious of many of them!

    Bayouboy. Is your Police Positive Target a second model?

    Actually, I have always thought of it as a transitional gun. It falls in the beginning of the 30000 serial number range but has the 1926 patent on the barrel with the earlier style narrow-butt frame. My belief is that Colt continued to use the old style frames until the supply was exhausted.
