Did COLT ever do special Order extra long Barrels, for the early DAs? And or for their various early 20th Century DA Revolvers?


I have seen the occasional Odd Ball which had a modified Rifle Barrel section ( 12 inches or better, one was pushing 18 inches I am sure ) adapted to it, and, I could tell right off, it was not something COLT had done.

But, it started me wondering, if COLT ever did do extra long Barrels, on request?

Colt did make some models with longer barrels, as example the 10 inch barrel Colt Camp Perry single shot built on a DA revolver frame.

Since Colt was always famous for doing just about anything a customer could pay for as a custom job, it's very possible Colt did make longer double action revolver barrels on special order.
Since these would be a special order item, there's no way to find out what may have been made up unless you own the gun and order an Archive letter for it.

A 14 inch Barrel, Target Flat-Top 'New Service', in .44-40 or .38-40, with detachable Shoulder Stock, would have been fun I think.

Leather Cased, of course.
