    Hello, Is there any way to tell the date of manufacture of a Colt Official Police revolver without paying for a Official Colt factory search? If someone asks, is it recommended to post the entire serial number of the revolver on the site? Thank You, Mike Trude

    Hello and thanks, The first three numbers are 586 (only 6 digits in the total number) there is a "L" above the number and a "N" below it. Thank You, Mike Trude

    1934 ended with # 586000. 1935 ended with # 592000.

    Soooooo......your Colt Official Police # 586XXX was made early in 1935.
