    Show us your police/company marked revolvers!

    I starting thinking earlier tonight (usually a dangerous thing! ).

    I have posted pics of dozens of my PD guns here. I thought "How about a thread to see what everyone else has?"

    Sooooo...... What do y'all have??

    Colt Official Police, .38 Special with 6-inch barrel, serial number dates it to 1932. Marked on the backstrap Randolph P.D. 2 -- the seller told me it was from the Randolph, Mass. police department.

    Here's a 1950s NYPD Official Police with badge number on the back strap. I got it from R. M. Vivas when he got in the large shipment of Official Police and Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolvers a few years back.

    Another Detroit PD pistol (1926 Colt Army Special)

    After more than a few pangs of jealousy and regret, I found me one of these De-troit PD guns to add to my Pre-war Colt Revolver collection.

    MVC-010S.JPGMVC-011S.JPGMVC-012S.JPGMVC-013S.JPGMVC-014S.JPG

    the story goes that the first owner was a member of the Detroit PD's Pistol Team in the 1950's and 60's and this Colt Army Special was his personal issue / practice weapon.

    The finish has a few problems with some heavy wear in areas around the grips and the action is slightly loose, but the trigger is crisp and butter smooth! Not that I'll be shooting it much ......

    anyway, let me know what you think ... * also needed to mention that its a 5" barrel ....

    edit:
    I forgot to mention that it came with a Colt Letter to verify the piece as being shipped to Detroit PD with Walnut stocks.
    The stocks are minty because apparently the pistol was used mostly with those old rubbery "10X" target grips.

    This is my 1953 vintage Colt Detective Special, #639xxx. I live in south-eastern Michigan and purchased it at a local gunshop. The butt is stamped "10716 CDPD". When I obtained the DS, it was wearing loose, badly shrunk and warped, medallioned plastic stocks. I obtained a pair of old plastic (Colt?) stocks from Numrich for correctness. For use, I have put on a pair of wood "Aircrewman" style stocks that I bought on ebay. Although not correct, they have a nice feel, fit fairly well, and I like the look.
    I have not yet been able to identify the Police Department where my DS served. My initial suspicion was City of Dearborn P.D., (a Detroit neighbor). However, a Police trade-in could be from numerous possibilities. Coeur D'Alene, Idaho, has been suggested. City of Duluth, Georgia, looks like a candidate. I am considering going through the process of getting a Colt Factory Letter to try to solve my little mystery. It would be enlightening to know where it was shipped to from Colt's. If I get a "Colt Letter", I will share it on this most interesting and enjoyable Forum.

    Photo of an old Detroit Police Department target that I recently picked up at a local curio shop. It appears to have been printed "in-house".DPD-target1.JPG
