At the time of prodcution, the New Service Target pistol was the most expensive handgun in the Colt lineup. Finely finished and hand fitted with deluxe features such as the fully hand checkered front and back straps, adjustable sights, beautifully checkered Walnut grups considered the finest grips Colt ever made on a non presentation grade gun and superior polish and finish. This is a very early gun, mfg in 1905, with all the early features such as cut in frame, non tapered barrel and early Colt rearing horse logo on left side of frame. Extra attention was paid to the English guns as to finish as that market was very particular in those regards. This gun retains at least 95% of that lusterous finish on the frame and cylinder with some wear to high spots. The barrel retains about 60% with the non blued areas showing usual patina toning. The bore and action are as new and the stunning grips show some wear but are still stunning. The hand polished action and trigger pull are as good as any custom gun today if not better, smooth as silk. Of course, it has the standard 7.5" barrel with high target front sight and rear. Nice enough to be highly collectable and enough wear that taking it to the range will not ruin it. Of course, it is C&R elligible.
