Hi,

I got the opportunity last week to purchase a Colt Officer's Model Special in 22LR from a gentleman I've known for years. I didn't know much about them until I was doing some research and saw that they were kind of Colt's competition to the Smith & Wesson Pre-Model 17. I'm real happy I was able to purchase it as I am a S&W collector and thought it would be great to also have the Colt from the same era as my S&W Pre-Model 17. This Colt is in pretty good condition with what I would call normal bluing wear. I guess I would rate it at about 85%. I haven't shot it yet, but am looking forward to doing so. Any information anyone can provide is appreciated.

Yeah, hopefully I'll get out one of these days and plink off a few rounds. Might not be for awhile as I guess we are heading down into the deep freeze again for at least the next few weeks!!!

The OMS is my favorite of all the OMs, and I have them all. I like the sights and find that for me at least, I can't shoot them the best. I like to add later target stocks because I think that it balances out the look of the gun. In factory form, they look like they have too much barrel and too little grip. I now have 4 .22s and 3 .38s.

It had these FM Inc. marked target grips on it, but the seller also had the originals, so I put those back on.
