    A friend at work just got one in 32-20. Finish is excellent, but the grips have some cracking on the bottom. It has a four inch barrel and appears to not have been shot hardly at all. The newest date on top of the barrel is 1905. There is what appears to be a name on the right side of the frame. I can't remember the name but the first two initials are E. F.. The cylinder locks up very tight, but rotates smooth.

    Any information on this firearm and price range would be appreciated greatly. I am thinking of buying but don't won't to pay to much. Thanks

    Since you did not give a serial number or part there of, what I think you have is a Colt Police Positive Special (First Edition) . this has fixed sights and wood, rubber or plastic grips. Mfg. 1907 - 1946. It was the only edition in 32-20.

    100% - $495 NIB with all papers
    98 - $450
    95 - $395
    90 - $325
    80 - $300

    Hope this helps.


    And yes, I have a box of original Winchester Super X 32-20 for sale.

    Inplanotx,

    Thank you for the info. His asking price is $375. I could talk him down closer to $300. It really is a sweet looking firearm.
