      Old Colts..........

      You gents are about to get to me with your pictures of your late acquisitions. My first handgun of my very own was a Colt New Service. Also went through many Colt M1917s.

      Recently saw a commercial Colt New Service in .45 Colt, good condition, for $1250.00. I cringed, as my memory of these old guns were priced at under twenty dollars. One holster maker even advertised that with the purchase of his holster, he'd throw in a Colt M1917.

      I always loved the New Service, and had some correspondence with Colt about resurrecting the New Service and giving it the Python treatment. Colt responded that the cost would be prohibitive, and the market for such a large frame revolver was non-existant. This just before the announcement of the .44 Magnum by Smith and Wesson!

      Bob, I myself have been looking for a nice New Service, Sadly the only one I found recently was being sold by a collector and had a hefty premium price on it......

      If this is still a valid topic, here is my one and only Colt. A Colt Police Positive in .32 Colt New Police from 1910. Not the best shape, but glad to have it none the less.

      Glad that someone looked at it LOL. That is the only Colt I have, so I hope others show up soon. It does much better in "real life".

      The Bisley Colt in my avatar is the only one I own, but it is sweet. I would own more if they came my way at the right time.

      I own......OK lets say MORE than one Colt. But I've never had the luck to acquire a New Service. I'd dearly love to find one in 45 Colt (or about any other calibre) with around a 4 inch barrel.
