    Official Police day

    Here’s the second gun I purchased at the Michigan Antique Arms show. An Official Police 6” Target 22 in the box with test target. I didn’t know they targeted fixed sight guns although I remember reading on this forum that they targeted all .22 cal. Handguns. Here are the pictures. Bill

    You did have a VERY good OP day. I believe "Targeting" a fixed sight gun was an extra cost option. I have a couple fixed sight OP with the Test Target. You don't often see them...

    I have a .22 OP that shipped in 1935. It has the "T" stamp above the serial number under the crane. According to Haven & Belden's book, all .22 cal OP's were targeted as were all police orders. It sure is fun to shoot.
    Bracebeemer, does yours have the T stamp ? A combination of that stamp and an original matching test target would add credence to the theory regarding the T. Outstanding package by the way.
