This Colt was produced in 1950. The pistol’s serial number is 79887. The original 38 Super barrel is in minty condition. This Colt has the early ‘ Fat Barrel ‘. These early 38 Super barrels were bored from 45 A.C.P. blank barrels. This style of barrel was produced only for a short time. Colt latter on used barrel blanks that were thinner and made for the 38 Super. This Colt shows very little sign of being used. The factory letter states that this pistol was sold to Shapleigh Hardware Co. in Saint Louis Missouri but shipped to A.D. Sales Co. Tulsa Oklahoma on March 22 1950. The original bluing would rate a 98% or better condition. The ‘ Bowling Ball ‘ Pony grips are really stunning looking! These colorful grips are rarely seen today! These grips are in new condition with no issues. The magazine is the correct early post war 38 Super magazine. This Colt is a stunning condition pistol that would be a real show piece in any collection!

For those folks that do not know me yet, I’m very hard of hearing on the phone. Therefore when you would call me, I will pick up the phone and tell you that I will call you right back. I have caller ID just so that you know, the reason for that is I cannot use a regular phone. I have to switch over to what is called a voice carry over phone. When I call you back you will hear my voice in our conversation, an operator will type your conversation to me on my phone view screen. With me reading what you are saying to me saves me a lot of confusion for me mishearing words.
I do want to talk to you and answer your questions without mistakes or miscommunications. This system works pretty good, so please be willing to be patient with my hearing loss.
My wife Marcia has fine hearing on the phone and is quite knowledgeable about firearms and is very able to help you over the phone.
