Woodsman ?'s



Log in to see fewer ads
I put a 2nd model Colt Woodsman Sport, serial number is 122XX-S on lay-a-way. Can anyone tell me when this gun was made? it is a 4" or 4.5" barrel, button mag release, with the swirl looking stocks. Sadly, not in great shape cosmetically on the outside, but I wanted a inexpensive plinker and got this and a Ruger standard 4.75" pistol for a reasonable price. Thanks for an help.

I answered my own question using this chart off the Colt.22.com web site. I figure my gun was made around April of 1948.

The Huntsman replaced the Challenger in 1955, with the introduction of the third series. Serial numbers then skipped to 90001-C and restarted

Post some pictures of it when you get it. Some may have a lot of external wear, but not much actual use. If you want a real durable finish, send it off and have it Brushed Hard Chromed.
