    Colt New Service

    I'm attempting to post a thread with pictures on a Colt New Service revolver I have. Not much luck but I'll try once again. I'd appreciate any comment anyone might have after viewing the pics. The grip panels have been replaced with white plastic panels which I know detracts from the revolver's value. I'd like to locate a hard rubber pair of black panels with the Colt emblem. If anyone might care to give me a ball park estimate of its value I would appreciate their effort. I'm not sure how the pics and text got missed up together but at least they got included . Thanks Big Coulee CouleeIMGP0064.jpgIMGP0065.jpgIMGP0066.jpgIMGP0067.jpgIMGP0068.jpg

    Looks really nice. It appears that the cylinder and barrel have a slightly different color, or sheen, or something, compared to the frame?
    Maybe a caliber change?
    I think the New Service is worth more when chambered in .45 Colt than in just about any other chambering.
    I saw a really nice one chambered in .38-40, or something, really beautiful, and I thought, I'd buy it at that price . . . if it were a .45 or maybe a .357.

    Yep, that looks like a keeper. When you go out and take it to the range, you'll see those are nice shooters.

    1911A2 Thanks for your comment. Yes the old New Service is a good shooting gun when the proper size bullets are used. I try to use bullets sized .454 and .457 and loaded to about 650 to 700fps. I don't try to get excessive velocity with the reloads I use in this piece. Any replacement parts for this near 100 year old gun would be hard to find, so I keep pressures low. At 20 paces it puts the bullets right where I'm looking. Thanks again for your comment
