Nice 1914 COLT ARMY SPECIAL .32-20 WCF Caliber Double Action C&R REVOLVER
HANDY 6-shot Revolver
Here we present a C&R Colt Army Special Double Action Revolver, made in 1914 by the Colt Manufacturing Company with a production run from 1908 through 1927 in Hartford, Connecticut. The Colt Army Special was a pistol designed by Colt to replace the various over-complicated models of Colt New Army and New Navy revolvers. It was in production from 1908 to 1927 in hopes of securing a military contract. The United States Army instead adopted the Colt M1909 New Service revolver in .45 Long Colt and later the Colt M1911 Self-Loading pistol in the .45 ACP cartridge after extensive trials.
As the 20th Century began, the older .32 caliber revolvers which had been standard-issue for most of America’s police departments began to be phased out in favor of the larger-bore .38 and .41 calibers.
The overall condition is good. Strong action. The bore is in good shape with visible rifling. Both grips are in good shape with an expected amount of handling. The Colt medallions are seated firmly. Clear, legible markings.
