Hello, ordway
If you have a picture or two and a serial # range, I would be much obliged. Thank you for your consideration.

I am considering selling a Colt Officers Model Match revolver built, according to the original owner, in 1938. It is single action only. The original owner said he special ordered the piece as a single action and that Colt built it as such.
I have been told that a handful of these single actions were built by Colt and that others were modified by private gunsmiths.
Is anyone familiar with the single action Officers Models?

Potomus,
Questions really should be in the revolvers section, but I also have a single action OMT. I can try to help you with what you want to know.

Thanks Majic. I apologize for posting out of line. I was just reading and that question came to mind. I'm new here, but that's no excuse for not paying attention.
I have recently been told that an OMM of the period of mine can't be a single action.
Thanks again for your kindness in correcting my posting incorrectly.

I am not comfortable with getting off topic in a thread, but the Officers Model Match was introduced in 1953, so one could not be made in 1938. Perhaps you have a gun that has had an OMM barrel on an Officers Model Target made in 1938. Please provide a picture.
