Description:

As WWII began to heat up, the government stepped up procurement of various weapons for the war effort, including a series of orders in 1941-42 for about 5,000 Official Police revolvers destined for defense plant guard duty and security officers of various government bureaus. Colt responded by introducing the “Commando”, which was manufactured with either a two or four inch barrel, and non-gloss Parkerized matte blued finish. The Commando also lacked the usual metal checkering on the hammer, trigger, and cylinder latch, as well as the reflection-deadening treatment of the commercial version’s top strap. In addition, plastic material replaced the wood grips of the civilian model.Altogether approximately 48,611 Commando war-time models were eventually acquired through mid-1945.
