I have developed a magnetic personality for Colt Officers Model 22LR's. This one is a 1934 vintage 4 digit gun. Can someone tell me about the front sight. The others I have seen appear to be a straight sided flat piece of steel, this one has a white bead. I have another inbound is a 1948 vintage with prewar walnut grips. Will post pictures of it on arrival.
I have developed a real appreciation of their capabilities.

I like em too. I have one like yours but the bluing is worn more. It is a Very accurate .22 and it has probably been shot a lot before i got a hold of it.
Those adjustable front sights are unique/classic.
Good photos and I really like those photos because I can click and enlarge them. That is what I used to be able to do with the photobucket but now they only seem to come as tiny pics or full screen pics

The one I have inbound is 50687, class of 48 and my birth year. Has the incorrect. but IHO, better looking prewar walnut grips. Super nice example Chief, how's she shoot?

Gee Mike not even 300 numbers apart. I need to go shoot again, I am not a Bullseye Shooter, all I will say is I got rounds on paper at 25 yards with it!

I will pick up mine tomorrow from my gunsmith. he told me he test fired it with CCI Mini Mags at 15 feet and kept everything in 2 inches. Mind he is a Vietnam Vet with fairly thick glasses, hell of a gunsmith though named Allen Harton.

I have a very nice Officers Model .38 and have been looking for a .22 here in CA for a long time. So far they have eluded me. The only thing I found was one that someone had installed a Micro rear sight in the rear dovetail and a similar high front sight. I know the original parts are available through Numrich but was afraid that the rear dovetail was filed to fit the Micro base so I passed. They ones shown here sure are beautiful guns.

As promised here is the 1948 vintage, striated back strap, plain cylinder release but hammer and trigger are still checkered.
