1954 Colt 3-5-7

Colt's first post-war 357 magnum. This one has had some trigger work and is a great little shooter. The box is un-marked, but went with another 3-5-7 that was only about 500 serial numbers higher (target as well).

My favorite revolver - perfect barrel length, perfect grips, perfect caliber.
1930 .38/44 Heavy Duty
1930 .38/44 Heavy Duty

A very early N-frame Heavy Duty. The first of these shipped in early 1930 - this one shipped in November, 1930. Grips are elkhorn by Ken. The last two pictures show the gun with its service grips - not the original ones that the gun was shipped with, but the same.
