This gun is the replacement for the Colt S.A. 45 LC previously issued and was replaced by the S&W Model 10 pencil barrel .38 then the bull barrel .38, then the Model 58 .41 Magnum, and the final revolver, the S&W Model 65 stainless .357. How neat to have this gun in your collection....you certainly can say I am jealous (grin), I have two of the aforementioned SAPD issued guns, the .357 was mine when I was on SAPD, and I acquired a Model 10 Bull Barrel SAPD stamped. After the S&W 65, SAPD switched to the Glock 22 then the S&W M&P.
