Nice Clark, I'm going to fire my Colt Army Special 41 for the first time this weekend. Let us know how yours does when you get out to shoot it.

Posted elsewhere, but here’s the Colt Army Special that is marked with Greek Army markings. Charles (CDA926) told me about this gun broker auction. I won it and it shoots nice! The last photo shows the U. S. Ordnance Officer’s mark; there is no record of the US Military ever using the Army Special. The rust is coming off using the old copper penny trick.

Here is an Army Special from 1922 that I picked up a couple of weeks ago. It is as-new in the original box and I think it is one of the most classic revolvers Colt made. This one has a 5" barrel and is chambered in .38 cal., which seems to be .38 Spl. The original box is numbered to the gun and the only thing missing is the .38 cal. cleaning brush. Colt Archive Letter is on order.

Just reviewed this post, I have an Army Special that belonged to my Great grandfather. MFG 1914


it is a 32-20




I had forgotten about this post, but a recent like made me revisit it. I have received a Colt letter on it. Here it is


If anyone can provide information on the T.B. Davis Company I would appreciate it. I have done some searches and googled the address but older history would be helpful.

Shoots well too.

My Great-Great Grandfather's Army Special, Eubanks holster, and cartridge belt of unknown origin. He carried this revolver while working Security in Mining Camps, and later as muscle for Ford Motor Company during the strike breaking years, after leaving West Texas (Border Wars) for Michigan. Family history says that this gun replaced the .41 Colt SAA that he carried as a West Texas Deputy, after years of hard use and black powder loads took their toll on the SAA.

Bought this one recently - no. 318809, ex-[British] Infantry School museum collection. Nobody else wanted it, so got it for the reserve price - £150.



British proof marks on bbl.



stocks chipped unfortunately - number scratched inside does not match.



not pristine, but still locks up tight. Edit: has a timing problem - overturn on D.A.
