The Colt Police Positive is a small frame double-action revolver that's big enough to shoot comfortably, yet small enough to pack unobtrusively. The cylinder of the Police Positive rotates in the clockwise direction, the opposite of competing models, forcing the cylinder crane up against the frame, resulting in tighter lockup with less play and better chamber to barrel alignment, thus markedly increasing accuracy. Produced with fine carbon steel, the Positive features Colt's characteristic highly-polished surfaces with Colt's signature bright royal blued finish. Colt's Positive Lock safety, the innovation responsible for the gun's introduction, functions by preventing the firing pin from striking the primer of the cartridge unless the trigger is deliberately pulled. This revolver features "N. Nell" etched on its frame. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in good condition.
