Cased Colt Army Special #4541** in .41 Colt

Shipped to Moore-Handley Hardware of Birmingham, Alabama on July 28, 1922 as one of two guns of the same type




Terrific. I love the early cased revolvers. The .41 caliber Army Special with the 4" barrel is a very difficult one to find. Thanks for sharing.

A .32-20 manufactured in 1927








Shoots well too!

I notice this 1927 32-20 AS has a smooth non-checkered latch. I have a '27 AS in 32-20 and it also has no checkering on the latch. I found another 1927 AS 32-20 on Gunbroker and again no checkering on the latch. Do yo have any idea what the deal is with this? I thought they went to smooth latches on the Official Police in the 50s but the pre-war AS and OPs were all checkered. What gives?

Recently purchased this Army Special in .38 spcl from my local Cabelas. It dates to 1922 and was one of a pair for sale in the same store with close, but not consecutive serial #s. I attempted to barter for the other with no dice. Both have "MPD" marked on the bottom of the butt. I understand that the Memphis PD issued these at one time, so who knows perhaps its a lawman's gun? I fond of Army Specials. Growing up we had my g-g-grandfather's .32-20 in the house and that was the first pistol I ever fired. Beauty Material property Mascara Eye liner Cosmetics

I have several of these old warhorses. However, I don't think I've ever posted this one from 1921. It has a 5" bbl. & started out as a blued gun in a shipment of 50 to the "Met. Police Department" in Kansas City MO. The officer's name (E D Reedy) is engraved on the butt.

Best,
Charles
