This year has been incredible for me when it comes to finding and purchasing vintage classics in beautiful condition. I just picked up this like new in box 1960 Colt Officer's Model Match in 38 Special. Its got the Python action and it feels at least as smooth as every Python I own. Its five years older than my oldest Python, so that may have something to do with it, but whatever the reason, the action is truly amazing. The hammer is also shared with the Python, though this has the firing pin on the hammer, unlike the Python. These guns share the serial number range with the Trooper, but there weren't too many built in comparison with some other Colt revolvers. They were made for almost 20 years from the early 50's through the early 70's, but in very limited numbers. They are precision target revolvers and were available in 38 special and 22lr. For a very limited time, I believe Colt offered it in 22 Mag as well. Anyway, the gun, including the grips, is in absolutely pristine condition. In addition, its complete with the original box, registration, and the test target that these match revolvers shipped with. Most of them came with the larger Python walnut grips, but they were offered for a while with this smaller set. The rarer the better, as far as I'm concerned. The finish is the Colt matte blue, not royal blue, and other than the slightest muzzle wear on the tip of the barrel, it looks like it just left the factory. Lockup is very tight. I don't believe this one saw much range time. I'm hoping to get it to the range on Sunday. Nuff said, I guess. Thoughts? Please enjoy the pics. Its looks pretty good for a 52 year old revolver, eh?
