Default Yet another "old revolver".

Couple days ago I picked up a post - war (WW 2) Colt Official Police. This one has a six inch barrel. Serial number gives it a DOB in 1947. For a few years after the war Colt put plastic grips on their handguns which they euphemistically called "Colt Wood". People hated them and threw them away by the ton. As a result they aren't very easy to find anymore. This one has them. I've taken them off because plastic gets brittle, but I am keeping them. So I now have three Official Police models and a pre-war Officer Model with 6" heavy barrel. I feel like I should be in a Bogart movie.
