Nice 32/20 Official Police \"find\".

Found a very nice,probably 97%,finish 1930 vintage O.Police 6" in 32/20 today. Was able to buy it for under $250. No box etc. but gun shows little use,and good storage. What sold me on it was the "T" stamped in the crane recess over the serial #. This was marked if a gun was factory targeted,by adjusting the barrel to hit to put of aim. Those not targeted have an "L",for lined up by turning an "eyeballing" the front & rear sights for alignment. A little bit of minutia,maybe,but I find my fixed sighted Colt's from this era,with the "T" do shoot better. Had turned down a couple of similiar guns,with the boxes and paper in the $450-500 range,as I am mostly a shooter/reloader.Dealer had the gun priced low as 32/20s,according to him,are not popular! This will replace a 1920's vintage Army Special in my "32/20 battery",which I will sell to a collector. Bud

Well Bud, let me be the 1st here to congratulate you on your very nice find. Sounds like a great gun at a felonious price. Although I'm not a big follower of the 32/20, I'd have snapped it right up just like you did.

I also appreciate you sharing the tidbit of info on the "T" and "L" stampings. I did not know that. I had a lot of fun digging out some of my OP's to check for marks.
