    Talking Colt Official Police Photo Thread

    We have a photo thread dedicated to the Colt New Police, Police Positive and Police Positive Special. We have one for the Colt Army Special as well but none for the revamped Official Police.

    You got 'em? Post 'em here!

    My favorite Official Police is this one, originally owned by the late Country singer, George Jones:

    “It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carry the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life, or death ---- it shall be life.” - Ten Bears - “The Outlaw Josey Wales”

    My OP with aftermarket stocks. Ivory-like polymer over a thin wood backing. There is a number on the back strap. I have no letter from Colt about this pistol. It was used for training my son and for use in club bulls-eye matches.Colt OP5.jpgColt OP1.jpgColt OP4.jpg

    Not as beautifully preserved as the previously shown specimen, but an honest working gun with a long service history:

    Allentown, PA, Police Department. Made in 1950, shipped in March 1951. Ordered factory-stamped with department number. The stocks aren't specified in the letter; this being 1951, it should have shipped with Coltwood stocks. Since the OP stayed in service with APD at least through the 70s, I suspect by 1960 at the latest the department armorer had a box of replacement wooden sets on his shelf when officers came in with cracked or loose plastic stocks on guns acquired during the Coltwood era.

    Two of the early revolvers we carried in the early to mid 1900's at the NYSP were Colt Official Police's; stamped NYST on the backstrap. Here are mine: the first is the OP 6 inch and second the OP 4 inch. I wanted to show a photo of the NYST on the backstrap; the third in that photo just happens to be a New Service.

    This is my pre-war OP. I also have a near mint 1950 model with a 5" barrel, but no photo.
