Early Commando , now with letter...


Recommended Posts

I picked up a three digit serial number (398) Commando a while ago but never got a letter from the Colt historian. Well I rectified that recently and discovered that my revolver was shipped to the Curtis Key Co. in Euclid , Ohio in late December 0f '42. The Curtis Co. manufactured machines for making keys but suspended those operations and switched to war production , most likely auto parts. The company's main plant was in Cleveland and I think the Euclid location must have been rather small since the December order consisted of only a single Commando. Well here are some pics.
