    As I mentioned earlier, I traded away my S/W M66 .357 as it was too much gun for me after my heart attack. My return trade came yesterday, and I dare say it looked better than the pictures.

    Colt Police Positive (.38) Special, serial dates it to 1912. Late of the Westchester, NY, Sheriff's department. Bore is great, slight wiggle to the cylinder; hey, it's 107 years old - you'd wiggle too. As it's a Colt and has a similar frame to my 1937 detective Special, I was able to swap over the T-Grip; making it easier to grip and control. Hope to shoot later today.

    I've got a 1912 Colt Police Positive in .32S&WL. Not nearly as pretty as yours but so much fun to shoot...

    May also have served with the Brooklyn Police....but I guess they couldn't afford the engraving.
