colt challenger



Log in to see fewer ads
i picked one up recently , it was a total impulse buy - was not looking or even interested till it was placed in my hand at a very reasonable sum , upon inspection its in decent shape but then its the cosmetics and function im referring to , i know very little of these save it looks a lot like my brownings and high standards , i like it a lot ,

id like to know when it was made but so far my searches have given me catalog for buying new products - not interested in that this moment , serial number is 51117-c if that helps

For more information on your new Challenger, and the entire Colt Woodsman family, all series, all models, have a look at https://www.colt22.com/
My estimate of date of manufacture is from the Colt Woodsman Pocket Guide which says that the serial number at the start of 1952 was 40600-C and at the end of 1952 Colt was up to 63700-C
Hope that helps.
