Product Summary

Colt revolvers were the most popular law-enforcement sidearms in the world, and no Colt product personifies the law-enforcement handgun better than the Official Police Revolver. The Official Police was machined of fine carbon steel, with a bright royal Colt blued finish. Colt's Positive Lock firing pin block safety was a standard feature of the revolver, preventing the firing pin from striking the primer unless the trigger was deliberately pulled. The revolver's sights consists of a blade front with a fixed iron open rear sight, which is a simple V-notch shaped groove milled into the revolver's top strap. The top strap has a matte finish to reduce glare down the sight plane. Cylinder lock up is nice and tight, and the Official Police is graced with the typical Colt double-action trigger pull with a distinct hesitation at the end of the stroke. A rounded, checkered cylinder latch, a checkered trigger, and a better quality finish distinguish the Official Police from previous Colt models. This pre-war model features a fixed blade front sight with a rear groove and wooden grips. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in good condition.
