  1. New Members Introduction
    I'm Steve, and I'm new to this forum. I am a proud owner of a blued 4" Trooper MKIII that my dad left for me before he passed years ago. I have owned several other Colts in the past, and love them. I love learning about Colt guns, but wouldn't consider myself an enthusiast necessarily, but a...

    The barrel on a recently acquired Early Smokeless Six Shooter has 2 issues: 1st - the original sight needs to be restored but the bore is questionable. It's described as dark with worn rifling, erosion and mild pitting. There is maybe 15% original finish on the barrel and all lettering is...

    4" Colt Lawman 357 w/ 2" Barrel Replacement = 2" Snubby w/ Square Butt not Round? back story: I recently bought a blued lawman snubby (pictured) and was disappointed to find the target stocks I had bought separately didn't quite fit due to the 2" lawman having a rounded butt. I'm buying another...
  4. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    My father just passed away and I inherited his guns and my grandfathers. The only lose part in this collection is the below Colt 1911 barrel and slide. I am trying to nail down the year and also wondering if it is worth restoring with just these two parts. On the top of the barrel is "45...
  5. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    I just bought a new Mustang XSP 380. My father loves his, so I thought I'd give it a try. However, try as I can, I've been unable to remove the barrel from the slide for the firearms pre-range cleaning and lubing. I've try all sorts of angles and jiggling, but to no avail. Does anyone have a...

    Hello SAA Collectors, Colt's had the finer thread pitch of 24 threads/inch on 1st Gen SAA's and on some or all 2nd Gen SAA's, but does anyone know when Colt's changed to the courser thread pitch of 20 threads/inch? Was it at start of 3rd Gen production (i.e. S/N 82000SA)< or was it earlier in...

    Hello. I am in search of one or two loose 2 1/2 bbls for a pair of Diamondbacks I have. Need/s to be in very good to excellent shape. Prefer NOS. Find plenty of 4 and 6 inchers but have yet to come across any loose 2 1/2. Any help running some down would be great.

    I mentioned way back in February that I scored a 1924 Police Positive (Not Police Positive Special) with a 2" .38 special barrel that was obviously cut down, with 500 rounds of nice Remington ammo for $200 total. The ammo was priced at $18 a box, so I feel like I paid $20 for a shooter grade...

    I was wondering if anyone else has experiecnced this issue... i have been a long time colt owner. Recently, i noticed 2 cracks in the barrel, one at 12 and the other at 3, of my Colt 357 King Cobra Enhanced, w/ a 6" stainless barrel. I called COLT and they refused to honor their "lifetime...
