Several years ago my dad gave me a revolver which had belonged to my mother's father. It is a Colt Police Postive in .38 S&W. I have never shot it, but I am sure it would shoot. I have 10rds for it. It is a SA/DA.

Anyone know much about these? Anyone own one? Anyone know where to buy .38 S&W ammo?

Pics to follow shortly

Might check Sportsman's Guide.

I have a Police Positive also...it's a .32. I have never even contemplated buying .32 ammo in my life. Neat little historical gun though....maybe an ancestor to the pocket gun?

I have a 1910 CPP Special chambered in .32-20. Its not functional and I use it as a classroom training gun. All I can say is that folks had some mighty small hands back then.

38 S&W can be reloaded from trimmed down 38 special cases. Also it can be acquired from older fashion gunshops as it was a popular round back at the turn of the century up to about 1930 or so.

My dad has a 32-20 Police Positive, light round but a fun medium round to shoot with, i wouldn't hesistate to take it out anytime.

BTW, looks like a chip out of the one grip handle, this is pretty common on the early grips. Otherwise, from the quality of the pix, it looks like it is in great shape for being 80-100yrs old

You may also want to look up similar models on the online gun auction/brokers to see what they sell for these days. This would give you a good idea of what its worth.

Looks great!!!


Good Luck and Be Safe!!!
