Colt Single Action Army. 357 Magnum, 5 1/2" Barrel. This gun highly customized. Rear sight is Smith & Wesson, front sight is Ruger Blackhawk. Backstrap is brass from 1851 Navy.

I've beem through several M1917s, New Services, and Officer's Model Match, one Colt Python.

I still contend that if Colt had kept the New Service in the line, made it a .44 Magnum and given it the Python treatment, they'd be tall hog at the trough today.

I nearly forgot completely about one of my all-time favorites, a .22 Colt Frontier Scout, one of those dual-tone little single actions.

This little gun provided many squirrels for the pot.

I only got one Colt. It's a 1978 Colt Python 357 Mag. Still shoots as good as the day my wife bought her for me. I can't guess how many rounds have gone through it but they are many thousands.

Now there's a Colt guy! Show us some pics (especially of the '03 and '08 hammerless guns, those are my favorites). By the way, how do you pronounce "rfawcs"?:) :)

These are the only ones I have photos of so far. I'm trying to find the time to photograph all my firearms.



Top is Official Police .38 SP; Pocket Positive .32 S&W



Top to bottom
1908 Pocket Hammerless .380 ACP
1903 Hammerless .32 ACP
1908 Hammerless .25 ACP

I usually spell it. I haven't figured out a polite pronunciation yet. :)

I love the look of those hammerless guns. They're sweet. I'd purchase one if I could find one I could afford. fawcs may sound like someone trying to clear their throat (on offense intended). :smt082 :smt082 :smt082

They're some of my favorites also; always remind me of Bogart and Cagney.

You just always have to be on the lookout. I picked up the .380 at a gunshow for $400 4-5 years ago, and the .32 for $500, from a customer of the gunsmith I use who heard me remark I was looking for one. Finding these pistols in good or better condition is pretty tough, and the really nice ones usually command a premium as they are in some demand now.

The Anaconda was a fine revolver, but it was stainless steel. And it certainly was no New Service. The New Service was all forged/machined hand fitted carbon steel construction, same as the Python.

The Anaconda was not.
