My other 32 Colt. this is the old boy..

I posted the picture of the other one a month or so, (the long bbl) and finally got around to getting this one out and cleaning it up a bit.. This is the old guy..Colt Pocket 32 DA. Best info i can get is it was shipped from Hartford before 1909, so its a tad over a 100.. you can see of course the old "flat latch".. As opposed to the other one, this is also a pre "positive" in other words its sitting with OUT a round under the hammer for obvious reasons.. .Chambered in 32 Colt, (not .32 S&W) Grips are perfect, as is the piece, The only reason i got a good deal on it was it had been re-blued, so its out for a collector, but since i don't like anything i can't shoot its great for me..

Unfortunately, (actually im pleased) the wife fell in love with it, so she keeps it with her all the time...Fun shooter, this is a point and pull thing as the sights "might" be 1/16 of an inch..

Sorry for the pic quality, but you get the idea. This is one of three weapons i've given to Gloria. She also has a Colt det spl., and Taurus T-85 (both 38 obviously)..

Nice Colt Greg. I wish Colt would start making them again. Somebody needs to give S&W some good competition.
