I'm back from the Tulsa Gun Show. I wasn't expecting to see anything worthy since the internet has treated me so well. I found 3 revolvers that were begging to be brought home to be introduced to the rest of the Colt family.

1) Late 1954 Boxed Mint Courier in .22LR
2) 1956 Boxed 96% Cobra .38 special with a 5" barrel. Box is also marked 5" barrel.
3) 1926 New Service 45ACP (short cylinder) marked "New Service 45 Colt" on the barrel (left side) in 96% condition. It has the transitional checkered wood stocks. I understand that there was a 4 year period between 'ending' the early plastic grips and when the checkered wood stocks became 'standard'.

I love the New Service . Many variations to discover . I also have a 45acp with 45 Colt mkd barrel . It's one of the approximately 1000 "parts" guns assembled in the early 1930's . Sn range is roughly 336,450 - 337,500 . All early parts . 1917 frames with small rear sight notch ,1905 address , straight barrel , smooth triggers , hard rubber grips , square cylinder latch , etc . Nothing went to waste in those days .

Sounds like you had a very good show . /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Is this a similar revolver?

That's her and mine is also serial number 324xxx. Mine is in much better condition. I'm interested what the final price will be. Thanks for posting the auction link.

I'm going to start a new thread. I believe my gun and the one on auction is rarer than most believe. These guns were built before the run of qty. 1000 Civilian Model 1917 45 ACP models.
