Colt Woodsman; 1st Issue (1928)
 
So today I picked up a Colt woodsman 1st Issue made in 1928. That is the original finish and grips. $750.00. Very excited.

Awesome Colt! I love those long-barrelled first series Woodsmans (Woodsmen?). Were they building them for high velocity ammo yet in 1928? You'll have to let us know how it shoots!

No not until 1932. Fortunately I have a couple boxes of sub-sonic 22. I'm looking forward to getting out to the range. It seems t be a very natural pointer.

That's a neat find, Cordell. Add it to the list of guns you own that I'm jealous of.

You should trick it out; have the barrel shortened and have it integrally suppressed

Tempting, but I think I'll pass this time. ;)

You can trick out a brand new Buckmark or Neos, but you shouldn't mess with a classic.

Absolutely. I own a Buckmark which would be a prime candidate for such modifications, but the Woodsman is a collector piece. I have my shooters and then I have a few safequeens. Those I shoot once in awhile, but I have them mostly because I want them. What can I say? Collecting is a sickness. :D

Maybe if you were to get your hands on an original Maxim .22 silencer, but otherwise best to leave as is! Hope it shoots as good as it looks.
