For sale, a freshly rebuilt Commercial Colt 38 Super, converted to .38 Special Wadcutter by Giles and recently rebuilt by Greg Derr with a 1:10 KKM barrel. SN 111684, dated 1953

I obtained this years ago from a retiring shooter with a bulged barrel and a lot of cosmetic blemishes.

Greg Derr, 2019 APG Pistolsmith of the year, rebarreled, stippled and re-blued the gun.

Features:
Fast twist 1:10 KKM barrel and EGW bushing.
2.5lb crisp trigger with very short reset, no dragging on the halfcock. The perfect crisp trigger.
Stippled front strap and MSH.
Flawless blue finish, brushed/polished flats and matte rounds. Not a single blemish, 100%.
Grip and thumb safety blended to frame, none of the slop you usually see on old commercial colts.
2 tuned triple K magazines.

Price is $2100 shipped. There is no profit margin here, I am taking a loss. Jon E. built me a crazy iron sight .38 so this is just a backup vanity gun for me.

I am headed out of town for a while the first week of September and will be suspending all sales. This week is your last chance to own this gun.

Nice score. If Jon wasn't working on a 38 for me already this might have been hard to resist.

I'm glad someone grabbed this. It's a beautiful gun, just not in the cards for me right now.
