Hello everyone,
Although, I started shooting the Remington New Army my dad gave me a CVA Colt 62 police. Well I think it's a police. It is .36 cal. 6 shot and a 5.5" barrel. That has started me on the path to Colts, the 1851 being my favorite. Reading the forum I have learned it can be just as accurate as a Remington. I look forward to learning more about Colts.
Thanks, Tom

Welcome, Thorr40.
You can't go wrong with Colts. If you want to learn more about Colts, whether originals or replicas, you may be interested in reading this little book :

I found it quite interesting, and unbiased.

Welcome from Wisconsin! Ringo, I agree with you about the value of that book as I have it. Very informative.
