Colt 45 Revolver

Hi Folks,

What models of Colt revolver have been successful in Bullseye 45 caliber competition?  I'm thinking of the 1950s - 1969s.

Thanks, Tom

My dad shot a Colt model 1917 that had been re-chambered from .455 Webley to .45 Colt in the few 2700's he competed in. 

He had a re-barreled Ruger .22 semi-auto, a K-38, and the 1917.

I recall going with him to D.C.P.A. (Dutchess County Pistol Association) when I was around 10 or 11 years old, probably 1961, more or less................

I don't believe he was too successful with it, but he used it..................

I have a Colt New Service in 45 Colt that someone had to have used.  It has a front sight that looks like someone welded additional metal to the old half moon front sight and recut.  The rear sight looks like a copy of a S&W Beikert sight and is really “out of place on a revolver this size.  Give me a few and I’ll try to post a picture.

A couple of pics of the rearsight




I think it may have been a NWMP revolver in that it has a 7 1/2 inch barrel and the butt swivel.  It’s been used but not neglected.  I shot it with normal 45 Colt loads and it’s a bit snappy.  The other revolver is a 455 New Service for comparison.

Smith and Wesson 25-2. There's one for sale on Gunbroker right now for a very reasonable price...

Is anyone currently shooting a revolver at master or high master scores in state, regional or national level in Bullseye?
