Today I picked up a nice old Police Positive 38spl haven't looked up to see the year yet. I have been wanting one of these for a long time. the SN is 343085. The shop said a older guy brought it in on consignment. It was a good deal at $500 I think

The smooth topstrap says it's a first issue before 1927, so yeah, it looks pretty good! It should have a smooth trigger as well. Fine handguns.

To many collectors today seem to look past the real work horse of the pre war revolver line of Colt's which was the Police Positive & Police Positive Special. These are wonderful guns and can be bought without breaking the bank. If you have an interest in obtaining one of these I suggest you do it now as one of these days they will catch on and the prices will sky rocket. I have noticed this happening lately with the Army Specials. Here is a picture of the various barrel lengths of the Police Positive Special:

One each of the two calibers (32-20 & .38 Special) that Colt made the Police Positive Special in. Standard barrel lengths were 4", 5" & 6".

If they are all pre-war then, actually, you have 2 Police Positives and a Police Positive Special.
