My Sport has a SN of 69711 and Colt SN finder says it wasmade in 1930.

Robert Rayburn's Pocket Guide says the Sport was
made 1933-34 within serialnumbers 86000 - 91000.
I'm wondering if my pistol was refitted with this 4.5 inch barrel or am I missing something here?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Andrew Morris, Seattle WA, 206-660-1841

Your Woodsman originally had the longer 6 5/8" barrel and it has been replaced with the straight tapered 4 1/2" barrel found after s/n 90000. The first "Sport" barrel appeared around the 86000 serial number in 1933. Your Woodsman may have been refinished, based on the glossy appearance of the entire gun.

Perhaps a moderator can move this thread to the Semiauto Pistols Forum.

Thanks Tom. I was afraid of that. I appriciate your response. The barrel scrolling is not sharp but didn't notice any other re-bluing signs. I little disappointed but lesson learned here. Thank you again for your time to respond. Best Regards, Andrew Morris, WA State.
