    I had my first Colt Official Police revolver in college in 1973, but I foolishly let it get away. When I was a young kid in the 1950s and 1960s, the Colt Official Police .38 Spl double action revolver was the most common handgun you'd see on the hips of the small town police officers in the little towns where I lived. I have one built in 1929 that we'll put to the test.

    I own one just like the one your shooting, I also own a Python made in 1985. The Official Police has a nicer action than the Python.

    Considering that all you have is a notched rear sight the handgun is very accurate. I believe that when my uncle first got it 38's were not that expensive to shoot so mine might be really broken in. Double action is very smooth on my pistol.

    I just wish Colt revolvers weren't so expensive.
