I am looking for information on a Colt Officers Model that I inherited 25 years ago. I may decide to sell it, and would like a rough idea as to what I might get for it. The finish is only in about 65-70% condition with very light pitting and a little rust. This gun, however, shoots like a dream. It has, absolutely, the best action that I have ever had the pleasure to shoot. Extremely smooth and crisp, with just the right amount of pull! It has a 6" barrel with adjustable front and rear sights. Stamped on the barrel is: "Colt Officers Model .22 Long Rifle" (spelled out). There is nothing stamped on it about being a Target, Match, or Special model. This was probably manufactured before These designations were used. Besides the value, I would like to know when it was made. It has a very low serial number: #91xx. Can anyone help? Thanks, gaffrig

According to R. L. Wilson's little blue book of Colt dates of manufacture, this revolver was produced in 1934. Colt collectors tend to look for rare examples with very well-preserved surface finishes, so I doubt this gun would command a staggering price. I've handled a couple of similar guns, and I understand what you're saying about the action. Shoot it and enjoy it.

I have a similar gun to one one described above. It have a wood/bone like grip with a serial number in the 50xxx range with a Z stamped under. Any idea on the year on this?

Caliber counts on dating.
Colt numbers are sort of "snaky" with .38 serial numbers in the Officer's Model numbers, and .22 serials in the Official Police numbers...... or sometimes not.
And to make it worse, about that time Colt's serial numbers got really confusing with several models all intermixed according to caliber.
My advice on this one is to call Colt during business hours and ask them to be sure.
They'll want the serial number and caliber and the exact model name as stamped on the barrel.
The "Z" is a factory inspectors stamp.
