  1. Colt Revolvers
    Hi All, I'm new to the forum and new to Colt. I have a question regarding cylinder spin--that is, how easily the cylinder spins when swung out from the frame. I searched through the forum and did find that the cylinders on older Colts tend to have a tighter fit than newer Colts and other...

    Was lucky to find this last month before I went on vacation at my local gun store. It's the 1st year they made this in .22 LR. It came with Franzite target grips which, although functional, covered up the pretty prancing Pony. Thanks to user dback13, I have obtained the original type stocks...

    Looking for a nice pair of original Colt Officer's Model grips for my .22 LR model made in 1930. Here's an example (not mine) of a pre-war Colt OM with the original grips.
