    Tom. The New Police Target was offered from 1897-1907 and chambered in two of the .32 cartridges. Most were marked Colt D.A. .32 and that was for the .32 Colt cartridges. The more rare and less encountered chambering was the .32 New Police AKA .32 S&W. These were marked Colt New Police .32. The total production on this model was approximately 5000. This gun was the forerunner of the Colt Police Positive Target "G" frame model but lacked the positive lock. I hope this information helps.

    To expand a little on the New Police Target I have shown a few photo's.

    This early model lacked the adjustable front sight that the later Police Positive Target was equipped with. You will note in the photo below that the front sight is held in place with a pin:


    This photo shows the early frame style and checkered hard rubber stocks, which lacks the Fleur-de-lis design that is on the Police Positive Target model, along with the circular logo showing the Rampant Colt pony with the words Colt's New Police:


    This is one of the less encountered New Police Targets that is chambered in the Colt New Police .32 cartridge:


    This barrel marking shows the more common chambering on this model:


    Below is the barrel marking on the less common .32 New Police chambering:

    I'll throw mine in here too. .32 Colt from 1903.
    The West wasn't won with a registered gun.
