Hello, I am looking at buying a new police 32. I am confused about it. The bluebook says the new police will have a last patent date of nov. 6 1888. The gun I am looking at has a last date of june 5 1901. Can anyone help me on this? Thanks, Fred serial # 13251

If you meen the "New police model" my "standerd catalog of firearms" states it was mfg. from 1896-1907 (no mention of pat. dates)

If however you are just talking about a Colt in CAL .32 new police, I have no clue (they made alot)

Checking the book again and then looking at the Colt ser.# website has cleared things up (a little) Colt apparently made TWO "new police"mod's one 1882-1886 and one 1896-1907.

hope that helps.

A New Police with your serial would have been mfg. in 1902, hence the 1901 patent date on the barrel. The Blue Book has a number of errors...
