Colt New Police Revolver
Somewhat similar to the preceding is the "New Police" revolver, constructed with the idea of providing a strong serviceable effective arm of small enough size to be conveniently carried in the pocket, and yet with the firm grip and strong features of the best target and military, arms. It is made only in the .32 caliber, and may be adapted to the use of the long and short Colt cartridges or the .32 long and short. The weight with a 4-inch barrel is only 17 ounces. The shortest barrel applied to this model is 2 1/2 inches; the longest, 6 inches. A special police cartridge is supplied for this revolver where it is intended to be used for heavy work, the square nose construction of the bullet giving it an effective stopping force as though the caliber were much greater.
