I decided to shoot at the 25yrd outdoor bullseye range today, so I brought my 1912 dated Colt Officers .38 along. Ammo was Rem 125gr +p SJHP. These chrono between 1050 and 1100fps from 4" .357mag chambered guns, I can only guess in this gun, as I've seen Colts run slower at times...but it should be good for similar velocities, or better. As this is well below the .38/44 pressures this gun was deemed sufficiently strong enough for, I felt safe using the ammo...though I rarely run anything but std pressure wadcutters. All shooting was offhand, single action. The gun has a decent DA trigger, too, with the characteristic 'stacking' before the break....but this is really a bullseye gun, so I shoot it SA. I can only describe the SA pull as being just a little heavier than the metaphorical "wish off" weight, maybe 3lbs or so, I should get a gauge for that, dammit. Shots went low and right a little, it's sighted for 148gr WC's. 50 went into 5.25"....not bad, for me. The tyler insert makes the gun handle nicely for me, recoil actually had a hint of attitude for .38sp in a fairly heavy revolver, but easily managed , of course. The gun has the feel of a nicely broken in weapon; The action locks up 'bank vault' tight, as you'd expect from the .41 frame Colts, but the opening/closing of the cylinder is smooth and loose feeling, but solid at the same time. The wear from use shows, as most of the finish is gone and the bore is just showing a hint of frost- not enough to present any qualms about shooting, though...and it seems to shoot fine.
