Well, not, but, kind of a wacky old get up anyway..!
WANTED: Police & Company issued revolvers!!!!
At least the seller was honest about it.
Interesting piece. Not sure how the seller came up with the Official Police moniker, but he describes the gun’s genesis correctly. And I wish every GB seller had that many good photos. Let’s be charitable and not make fun of the price.
I don’t know much about two-inch barrels. From the patent inscription on the right, it’s an original, not cut. But did early AS or OP 2-inchers have just 38 COLT on the left? Don’t remember ever seeing that.
I was just in their store yesterday. I would have checked it out had I known about it. The owners are good folks and I’ve always found them to be honest in representing their guns. They have a lot of cool stuff. For my wallet’s sake it’s probably a good thing they’re over an hours drive away.
I could not make out what the Barrel says on it.
But indeed, Hat's off to the Seller for giving their best honest description...good to see.
I actually wrote the seller when he first listed the gun as simply a "Official Police" and explained how I thought the gun had been put together. He appreciated the info...
