This 1914 Colt Police Positive Target finished in Colt’s factory charcoal blue, known as a high polish blue with a 6” barrel and adjustable sites. A rarity in the early double action revolvers, found on the target models. The top strap is flat on this target model.  Non target models you would see a serrated and grooved top strap for a rear sight. The target revolver can hold six rounds of .32 Police CTG (Colt’s disguise for the .32 S&W Long) and a more rare configuration compared to .22LR option.
