Under the "Colt 1927" post, somebody mentioned a very rare Colt- the Colt 28A.

Can somebody tell me about this gun also?

Who was it made for? When was it made? Any pics? Serial Numbers? Etc! wink.gif

Thanks

Norm,
I think Greg was refering to a 1928 Navy overstamp without a Cutts compensator.

Second,
Either specimen would be unusual.

Ron,

"When I Was Young" was Eric Burdon and the Animals if my ol' memory from the 60's works. (I could cheat and look it up but that's no fun).

No, no, no. That was the old drunk in the looney bin watching the ants come out at night. Fess was the pilot almost knocked down by the flying ants. He was in a looney lockup but not the nutty one.
I loved that movie, killing giant ants with a Thompson. Oh what fun it would be.

Ron,
Yah. That was Olin Howlin as "Jensen" the dipsomaniac. Are you testing us again?

Ron,
I believe they had Lyman's and finned barrels, so early ones. The question is where did James Whitmore (Sgt. Ben Peterson) store his TSMG that he grabbed from the front of his cruiser?
