    Earliest 2” New Service

    I got another one of my must-have guns today, a 2” New Service. My understanding from Cam is that records research discovered 19 of them. This is probably number 20 (since research did not go that far back). This one was made in 1924 and is the earliest known 2” New Service. It spent all of it’s life in Chicago, changed hands last time almost 50 years ago, and now it has a new home in Virginia for as long as I am on this Earth.

    Big thanks to Cam, Tom Kirkpatrick and Paul at Colt Archives for information and support.

    These pictures were taken by me when I examined the gun in Chicago last week. I expect it via Fedex tomorrow and will post more.

    I love snubs too, rare snubs to be exact. This one definitely qualifies.

    At $9625, the gun didn't come cheap. You didn't get the usual "WW" discount?

    Based on what the experts (Cam, Tom) told me this was the WW discounted price. One of the reasons was a poorly set up auction. The consensus was that this is a $15k gun, and someone who doesn’t have one might have even gone higher. I had my bid at $12K and I was ready to go higher, but as it turned out I didn’t have to.
