I just picked this one up. It is serial number 755639 and I think it's a pre war. I find conflicting build dates on this one.
I need to verify the date of birth, and if the grips are right (I think they are later) and if the hammer is an add on?
The action is as slick as cat poop in Linoleum, can't wait to shoot it tomorrow.

The target stocks are post-war, correct for an OMM.

Factory correct stocks would be the early red-swirled, non-shrinking Coltwood service stocks.

The .38 cal. OMT serial numbers run concurrent with the Army Special and then the OP numbers. Your revolver would date to 1947. The OMT was produced into 1949.

The hammer is not factory original.

Nice revolver!

That is the most descriptive and most accurate way of portraying the action on these revolvers. I couldn't agree more!!
