    Built on a 1921 Police Positive .38 Special. Full details and process in American Handgunner in a few months. A fun project.

    I don't get AH any more.
    Are you taking on Colt mechanical work? Internet Wisdom is that Colts are impossible to work on. Hamilton Bowen prettied up a New Service but made it clear that it was in good operating condition to start with.

    Why does the Fitz Special look so familiar? Has it appeared on the forum recently? Or maybe I was watching a youtube show about it...

    From what I understand, the modifications seem well thought out. Definately a product of its time.

    Pretty cool history on this specialty gun. Forgotten Weapons did a nice video a while back (here).
