Colt Police Positive from The Thin Man

    This weeks movie gun is the Colt Police Positive which was used in the 1934 detective film The Thin Man. The small frame double-action revolver was introduced by Colt in 1907. This beautiful specimen was engraved and presented to William Powell.

    You can learn more about this gun at the NRABlog and by watching the latest installment of the Curators Corner (Click on “program Archive” button, then click the Apr 08 tab, then scroll down to “Curator’s Corner”. As of now the program is not yet online.).

    Sadly this is the last gun in the movie gun series. This series was made possible by the NRA’s Senior Media Specialist Lars Dalseide. Thanks Lars! Next week we will have something different.
