    Thanks to all. It's only on the 2nd model .22 caliber and started around the 37,000 range. I'll keep a running record. Please send me a PM if you have something so we don't mess up this picture site.

    Side question - in your pic there's a D under the serial number. On my slightly earlier PP, mine has a capital W under the number. I'm assuming this is an inspector marking or similar? Does anyone have the specifics? Just curious...

    If I’m not mistaken, the letter stamped under the serial number is the final assemblers mark and the mark on the rear left of the trigger guard is the final inspectors mark. I might have that backwards though. Hopefully one of our experts will see your question.
    Here’s a picture of the ‘3’ on our trigger guard.

    You are correct they are inspectors marks.

    What fine examples, I look at the Police Positive all the time. I want one and when I find a nice one, I will get it best tech expert guide. I am sure it will not be as fine as yours though.

    Newly acquired Police Positive Target Model, .32 Police caliber, serial No. 162046.

    The grips were damaged and there are scratches on the butt as if it was used as a hammer. I got replacement grips from NC Ordinance which are perfect copies of the original fleur-de-lis pattern and fit exactly. Other issues are a very stiff cocking action and some freckling. The action seems to be loosening up with use and a good cleaning. The rear sight is hard to move so I'm bathing it with Kroil. I need to adjust it because the gun now shoots far to the left.
