    I went to a gunshow yesterday with interstatepawn, kimberkid and met bigtire. Good day, with good company. I was just walking around minding my own business, when this colt jumped out and grabbed me by the leg.

    Take me! Take me!

    Private sale, .38 spec., 4" barrel, $370.00 how could I say no? This thing cleaned up like near new. I'm pleased.

    Pleased??? I would be thrilled to say the least! :D That would rate (for me) as a once in a lifetime steal! A friend of mine owns one just like it - told him if he ever gets the urge to sell , call me first! Beautiful revolver!

    Have you shot it, yet? After all, it's wednesday.
    Accuracy? Trigger? What loads?
    Quit the teasing, and get on to the range report!!!
    Fine wheelgun; look up Reeves JUNKIND, in Austin, Tx, if you have a problem; yours is a stepchild of the Python, and he is the GURU!

    I took it to a small indoor range the other night and splattered a few targets with some cheap Remington .38 specials.. I believe in the right hands it would group nicely. The trigger comes off as nice as my S&W 27-2. As I stated earlier, this is my first Colt and I about pushed the thumb latch right off that thing trying to get the cylinder open. ;) :D

    I think it's found a home.

    Nice, real work of art, and yep, looks like it cleaned up real nice. When all is said and done, it seems like guns are one of the few things made where quality and craftsmanship matter.
