This one letters to Lewiston, Maine police department. It shipped February 1942.
Three of the four are pre-war. The back left is a Post-War example. While most of the pre-war 2" O.P.'s have the round front site, a few of the later examples came with the tapered front ramp. I have also seen this feature on other pre war late O.P.'sColtguy, what year was your 2" OP manufactured ? I am curious when barrels with a slightly ramped front sight started to be used.
I‘m curious as to how you arrived at the 5,000 OPs. Considering that at the beginning of 1942 production was in the upper 680-thousands and went up to the 724-thousands by fall, we‘re more likely looking at something around 35,000-plus.February 1942 would have been just before the US Ordnance Dept had Colt transition to the manufacture of the Commando. Not many Official Police revolvers were built that year, only 5,000....
