Hi Guys: Although the list of things I collect seems to be continually expanding, there is one area that has always been a primary focus. That's US martial firearms, including Colts. I try not to get involved in foreign military stuff, but every now and then my interests in different areas coincide. That happened recently when I ran across, and bought, the pictured Colt Official Police. It is a 1940 production British military example in .38 Special, serialed 645832. As is customary with British guns the finish is in poor condition, but otherwise it is solid, sound and original. The only modification was the addition of the British style of lanyard ring (they call them "swivels, butt"). It has no import markings nor any post-war commercial proofs. Those features are, in my experience, unusual for British surplus guns in the USA. It is shown with a British lanyard. I'll post a second pic of the other side and give you the rest of the story.....
