Can you fire a 357 round out of a 38 long colt pistol?
.38 Long Colt was the forerunner to .38 Special- and was originally a black powder cartridge. The .38 Special is more powerful- the .357 magnum is MUCH more powerful. Neither the Special nor the magnum should be fired in a gun chambered for .38 Long Colt. This is VERY dangerous.
No, you cannot. Read More

You can fire a .45 ACP cartridge through a .45 ACP pistol - and only a .45 ACP pistol. The various .45 cartridges (.45 ACP, .45 Long Colt, .45 GAP, etc.) are not interchangeable with each other. Read More
The pistol fired the .38 Long Colt cartridge, not to be confused with the .38 Smith & Wesson Special (.38 Special), .38 Super, .38 Short Colt, or any other cartridge marked as .38 or .380. That is the only ammunition type which can be fired through this pistol. Current production .38 Long Colt ammo may be run through this pistol. However, I would advise you to have a competent gunsmith inspect the pistol to ensure… Read More

Actually, the cartridges are .45 ACP (automatic Colt Pistol) and .45 Colt (the cowboy era revolver cartridge. There is not really a Colt 45 Long. Can a revolver shoot both? Some can- they are chambered for the Colt .45 -but to shoot .45 ACP they need a "half moon clip"- a strip of metal that holds 3 of the shorter .45 ACP cartridges. 2 of those fill a 6 shot revolver. The PISTOL (not revolver)… Read More

They are the same exact round. When the .45 Schofield (S&W) round was introduced in the late 1800s people began to refer to the .45 Colt as the .45 Long Colt, or Long .45, because the .45 Schofield was shorter. The name may have changed for a while, but the actual round never did. Read More

I believe the Thompson Contender could be found in .410. There was a company from Argentina which manufactured a single shot pistol which, by replacing the choke, could fire either a .45 Long Colt round or .410 shotgun shell. As far as I know, they're no longer in business, and you'd have to search for one which was for sale.. offhand, I'd recommend Gun Broker, Auction Arms, and Guns America. You'd have to buy it… Read More

about 1934 I disagree. Colt began 1948 with serial number 30600 on the Official Police and they began 1949 with serial number 33500 so this pistol was certainly made in 1948. Read More

The standard caliber is .45 acp. That is a short fat pistol caliber that fires a 230 grain bullet at about 800 feet per second velocity. Lighter bullets down to about 185 grains are available, and they travel faster, possibly as high as 1100 f.p.s. The model 1911 pistol is a semi-automatic, not to be confused with an equally famous revolver made by Colt, often chambered in what is also called .45 caliber, but that… Read More

I presume the question is asking about the US .45 pistol round (the British Martini-Henry rifle also fired a bullet of .45 caliber). In the 1800's, the Colt pistol was made in .45 probably because it was a big round which typically struck the target with enough force to require only one shot. When the US assumed control of the Philippines from Spain in 1898, the US Army was using a pistol in .38 Long… Read More
No, is the short answer. The long answer is a little more complex. The .45 Colt and the .410 share similar base dimensions which make them interchangeable in certain firearms. Usually, however, you find .45 Colt/.410 shotgun combinations, meaning the firearm is designed to shoot .45 Colt, but will also accept .410 shot shells. The Taurus Judge, and Bond Derringer's Snake Slayer are two pistol examples. There are many variations, but the unifying factor is… Read More

Typically, no. There are some .410 shotguns which can also fire one or more rimmed pistol cartridges (usually .45 Long Colt, but I've seen them for .41 Magnum and .44 Magnum, as well), but these are purpose built to be able to do this - it cannot be done in an ordinary .410 shotgun. Read More

made about 1914........................ I disagree. Colt first produced the Official Police model in 1930. "Proofhouse.com" says that Colt began 1935 Official Police models wih serial number 4000 and 1936 began with number 11000 so your pistol was made in 1935. Read More
The same 45 cal. ammo used in the 45 cal. revolver. This can get confusing, there are very different cartridges that are '.45'. In semi-automatic pistol the most common is .45 ACP. The ACP stands for Automatic Colt Pistol, that is the company that developed the cartridge. But for revolvers, you would more commonly use the .45 LC (Long Colt) which is a longer round. Modern Derringer's are more typically a two barrel gun that… Read More
A double action gun is a revolver that provides the ability to fire the gun no matter whether the gun is cocked or not cocked.

The .45 Long Colt is similar enough to the .410 shotshell that it is interchangeable in the Thompson Center Arms Contender family of handguns/rifles. This is the only firearm that I have personally owned that was specifically designed for this interchangability.

The shotgun may have… Read More
