Documented by a decade's worth of research and Colt factory records, including production quantities and extensive serial number data. Be prepared for some surprises, this field of collecting will be changed forever. This landmark boo on Colt's New Model Pocket and Police Revolvers permits the reader to finally understand these interesting and diverse early cartridge pistols. Until now, most authors and collectors have labeled these guns 'small frame conversions' and declared them confusing. As it happens, there are seven basic variations which are documented and described with production programs and quantifies given for each. As the authors of this book point out, most of these guns were actually made as cartridge pistols and were not converted from percussion, although the conversions form a key pat of this book and are described in detail.
