RARE Colt Officer's Model Match Revolver Single Action Only
The Colt Officer's Model Match was
made from 1953 to 1969,
when all the old-style mid-frame Colt revolvers
were discontinued except for the Python. Available in .22LR, .38 Special, and a few in .22 Magnum, the revolver finish was blue, and the barrel was 6".
The guns were fitted with Colt's famous Target hammer,
and Target grips, and marked the first appearance
of Colt's post-war adjustable sight, the Accro, which
was used on all Colt revolvers and autos up until today.
It was the last in a line of mid-frame target revolvers that began with the Officer's Model Target of 1904.which were highly favored by top target
shooters of the 1920's through the 1940's. The
Officer's Models were Colt's premium revolvers over the years, bettered only by the super-premium Python. Only a very limited amount of these revolvers were converted to single action. From 1953-59 Arnold Goodwin, chief gunsmith at Colt's factory produced it is believed only about 130 such variations. This revolver is one of those ULTRA RARE specimens and is in NEAR MINT cond. SN 923772. The factory Colt letter which accompanies the revolver states ".38/c, 6" bbl.,Blue, furnished w/a short action(single action).Shipped to Royal Oak Police Dept. July 3rd, 1959".
With this also comes a hand written documentation letter from Chief of Police of that department denoting purchase from P.D. SN 923772 and states "worked at Colt factory to single action specifications by Colt gunsmith "Goody" Goodwin." 695 Thanks for looking and please e-mail us with any questions PRIOR to bidding.
