Colt .38 Super - Full coverage engraving is definitely in play for this Colt handgun, with elegant small floral scroll outlined by gold inlay work. 1929 was the year Colt introduced the updated version of the .38 Auto., originally calling this semi-rimmed round the .38 Super Auto. In addition to Colt semi-autos including the Government Model and the Commander/Combat Commander, the Thompson submachine gun was also chambered for the .38 Super round.

Engraved Colt Government Model - Our GOTD is a very nicely engraved Colt .45 Government pistol that served a helicopter pilot during tours of duty in Vietnam. The gold embellished “Colt” on the side helps identify the maker and on the base of the magazine are the owner’s initials for further identification. This one’s in our “Artistry in Arms” case for viewing. NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, VA.
