Very nice! So I assume that is a real C&R gun, and not a side plate? Any idea of the ownership history?

Thank you. Yes it is an original commercial Colt. Purchased thru a private estate (Form 4) with no background available (my guess is a PD weapon or 68 amnesty registration using original serial number verses the IRS prefix). I could do a FOIA inquire and may do so after the fed government settles down.

PD is probably the best bet. But some of those early guns were also owned by companies with security or angry labor concerns. Would be interesting to find out that history. I just picked up a C&R subgun that spent it's entire life in various portions of the Louisiana Prison system.

I've owned a half dozen Reising Model 50(s) over the years and most PD and state prisons stamped or burned their "ID(s)" into the weapon (as they did on Thompsons, Trench Shotguns, Remington 51 rifles, almost everything) such as CCPD (Culver City PD) ,OSP (Oklahoma State Police), etcetera. It made part of the weapon's history easy to pinpoint.
