First Series Bulleye Match Targets in good shape are getting harder to locate. I have a standing offer made for a NIB MT thats marked “U.S. Property“ , issued to the Navy in 1941 , manufactured in 1938. It has correct plastic grips versus Elephant Ear grips. Can tell it’s correct because there’s no hole in the front strap , where the EE’s attach/screw in... I’ve owned approximately 30 First Series Woodsmans, only series I’m really familiar with.I have a few Woodsmans to. My favorite Series is the 2nd because of the push button mag release. They also come with extra back straps. I don't have the 1st Series Match Target. Can't find one cheap enough in a condition I'd be happy with.
Maybe they got their problems fixed. I'd get one but am eye-balling a new scope.First range trip today. I put 60-80 rounds through it. It shot very well no issues at all.
You brought a tear to my eye when I saw the photo. Sadly I had to sell mine when I was married to Medusa.
Maybe .45 Auto Rim but don't think the cylinder is long enough for .45 Colt.
More pics please.Colt Single Action Army in .38-40 caliber. Purchased by my Granddad in New Mexico in 1917 , same year it was manufactured. Wasn’t a safe queen , he carried it with him everywhere I am told.
Have the Colt Letter and the original receipt . It cost him $ 17.50 !! My daughter will make it a ForthView attachment 7404263 generation Colt. Shes also a shooter and knows the value.
I feel better now. I still miss my 1917 but the remorse would have been worse if it could chamber .45 Colt.You are correct ! I basically had a brain-fart ! Would be hard locating 45 Auto Rims in my neck of the woods.
Its a safe queen now , just really dig weapons that were former “ United States Property “ .
Both S&W and Colt made them, the Colts are more desirable and pricier.
I have some Colt collector grade weapons , a Single Action Army owned by my Granddad who died before I was born , and my Dads .45 he carried during WW2. He died when I was 2 in a car wreck . I have one daughter thats’ 35 now , she’s been shooting since 9-10 years old.Thanks! I’m happy it’ll be passed down to my son some day... and he already likes shooting it.
