If you are a serious Colt firearms collector, the revolver that you are looking at now is a must have, especially for those of you who collect military-era pistols. ‘Dirty Harry’ is proud to offer you this highly-collectible 1943 Colt Commando .38 Special revolver (serial # 14039) featuring the scarce 2” barrel, a factory original parkerized finish, and beautiful factory original checkered Coltwood stocks. Manufactured from 1942-1943, these U.S. inspected Colt Commando revolvers were issued to state militia forces, security teams at war-essential industrial centers, and similar ‘home front’ applications. Features include: fixed sights, the two-line Hartford address on the right side of the barrel, and marked ‘COLT COMMANDO/38 SPECIAL’ on the left side of the factory 2” barrel. The ‘VP’ Colt proof and an inverted ‘A’ are on the on either side of the trigger guard, and the flaming ordnance bomb is above the cylinder release. Compared w/ other 2” Colt Commandos that I’ve seen, the overall condition of this pistol is simply amazing, considering how the factory parkerized finish is so easily scratched & marred. Besides some light scuffing on the left side of the barrel and a turn line, this pistol is in ‘excellent’ condition throughout! The factory original parkerized finish shows absolutely minimal signs of handling, and the original checkered Coltwood stocks are mint w/ beautiful coloring. All mechanical functions are perfect w/ tight lockup and accurate timing. The package includes an original kraft box that is numbered to the gun, and the original Colt Commando manual. According to the Colt Archives letter, this revolver was sold the United States Government and was shipped on April 16, 1943, to the Port Transportation Officer San Francisco Port of Embarkation. This beautiful & highly-collectible 1943 Colt Commando .38 Special 2” revolver will make an excellent addition to any high-end Colt collection.
