No, the New Service has a larger frame size than the Official Police and was made in calibers like 45 Colt and 38 & 44 WCF that are too big to fit in the Official Police, as well as 38 Colt, 38 Special and a few in 357 Magnum. Colt made it until WWII, when the machinery & jigs were stored outside in the parking lot and got ruined by the weather. A few guns were made from left over parts after WWII, but Colt didn't make another large framed revolver until the Anaconda came out.

That's a really nice example of my favorite Colt product, the New Service.

The Heiser holster is particularly attractive too.
