The Colt Official Police is a medium frame, 6 shot, double-action revolver primarily chambered in .38 special. The Colt Official Police was introduced in 1927 by Colt's Manufacturing Company. The intended target market was primarily law enforcement agencies and it became one of the best selling police firearms of all time, at one point becoming the bench mark for all that a law enforcement sidearm was supposed to be. The Colt Official was also used by various U.S. and allied military forces during World War 2 and was popular in the civilian market as well.
The Franzite Grip developed for the Colt Official Police revolver also fits the Colt Army Special, Officer's Model, Trooper, and .357 magnum. Franzite made these grips in faux ivory, walnut, and staghorn versions.
