Product Summary

The Colt Police Positive Special in .38 Special is big enough to shoot comfortably, yet small enough to pack unobtrusively. The Police Positive Special was intended primarily for sale to law enforcement agencies and enjoys the distinction of being Colt's most widely produced revolver design with over 750,000 built. Compared to the earlier Police model, the Special has a slightly lengthened cylinder and elongated and strengthened frame to allow the chambering of the longer, more powerful cartridges. Produced with fine carbon steel, the Positive Special features Colt's characteristic highly polished surfaces with Colt's signature bright royal blued finish. The Positive Special also incorporates Colt's Positive Lock safety, which prevents the firing pin from hitting the primer unless the trigger is deliberately pulled. This third issue revolver features a blade front sight with a rear grove and wooden grips and does not have a cylinder rod knob. Its wood and metal are in fair condition and its bore is in good condition.
