    Colt. .380 Shanghai Municipal Police – 2 MORE !

    I previoulsy had 11 of those Colt .380 made for Shanghai Municipal Police

    I have recently acquired two more (out of the first batch of 1925)

    S/N 88332 # 299
    S/N 88601 # 173

    Both are all-matching (frame, slide, barrel)
    As expected, they come with their special grips, double-holed mags, lanyard

    _DSC5331.JPG_DSC5330.JPG

    Interestingly, 88332/299 has a weapon property number on fore strap : U3130
    If you have any idea what this marking refers to, please help

    For your consideration, fellow gentlemen (namely ei8ht !)

    Recently I was the high bidder on one of these right up until the end. I was outbid by a fellow forum member. I decided not to run it up anymore. It sold at a real good price. I'll remember who you are and get even sometime down the road. Just kidding. Don't blame you a bit for bidding. It was a real good buy. Glad you got it.

    FYI

    Those two SMP's (as all the others I bought in the past years) were acquired in Canada. Since they are considered "prohibited" under Canadian law, one must be grandfathered to acquire and own them. Because of a low demand, they sell for a fraction of their price in USA. That's why I can afford buying them. Unfortunately, because they don't meet BATF standards, they cannot be exported south of the border.

    Most Excellent addition Bruno.
    You certainly have the Canadian advantage!
    I have no idea about the property number on fore strap.

    I recently added a SMP hammerless for a total of 9 now for me.
    Hard to find and getting expensive.

    A couple of new made 1903's for me but that is all.

    Have a cigar!

    Back to square one, i.e to my first entry over one year ago.
    You had enough time to think about it gentlemen...
    Any idea what U3130 on front grip strap refers to?

    I don't know the answer to your question but can say that German U-boat "U-3130" would have been a very late WWII "Elektroboot"
