  2. Colt Revolvers
    Hi! I'm a new member from New Jersey and tried to respond to a thread which is now closed. I was very interested to hear that one of the Colt Forum members was compiling a database on military Model 1909 revolvers still in existence from the original 20,000 pistol contract. Here is mine. I...

I'm new to the forum and was wondering if there is a source of information that lists the total number of Colt New Service Target and Shooting Master revolvers that were made, and also that gives the total number made in each caliber?
