Colt New Service 45 Colt Revolver 1936 Excellent + With Vintage Carved Kearsarge Grips 5-1/2” BBL

This beautiful Colt New Service is in extraordinary condition, was made in 1936 (SN 339689) and comes with vintage Kearsarge grips featuring the classic oak-leaf motif and the initials “RMK”. About 2/3’s of the total production of these legendary pistols went to law enforcement and militaries around the world. With good reason: utter reliability, incredible durability and astounding accuracy. The fit, finish and superb overall quality speaks of its manufacture to a standard that’s impossible for today’s companies to even approach because of their academically misguided management. It features a 5-1/2” barrel, deep high polish blue, matte top strap, fine checkering on the ejector rod, trigger face, cylinder latch and hammer spur and the afore noted Kearsarge grips. It retains a strong 97% original high polish blue with slight edge thinning, a few small scratches, slight cylinder line and slight thinning on the ejector rod while the bore is perfect as are the stunning grips. Function is perfect as is its vault-like lock-up. A real beauty that Elmer Keith would appreciate and who knows, maybe “RMK” is Elmer’s brother Roger!
