That seems about right.
You are correct, it was made in 1936 & it does take the .38 special cartridge. Size G16 style would be my guess.
if a police positive special made about 1913
answering "What is the age and value of a 38 Special Colt Police Positive with 6 inch barrel in mint condition with original box serial number 348061
Impossible to answer without a detailed description and the serial number.
Sorry don't know the value but the Colt police positive .38 special with serial # 269282 was produced near the end of 1922. (242000 - 269999)
value depends on overall condition. if your colt is a police positive special, made about 1921
The age would be around 1949.
I would estimate date of manufac. 1950
Dont find serial numbers starting with"0"for a 38 Colt Police Positive. Are you sure it's not an"8"?
the colt police positive goes back to early 1900's.......if serial number removed then weapons becomes illegal by law
You will need to get it lettered. That is a unusual length. If factory, seek a professional appraisal.
It should have the caliber marked on the barrel,such as"38 Colt New Police".
$150-$200 and up.
Made around 1971. Value is decided by condition,markings,and history of the gun.
38 special unless it's a 38 S&W, then 38 S&W cartridge. should say on barrel.
1951 was the year.Third Issue it shoud be a .38 Spl.w/a 4 to 5 in barrel They where made from 1947 to 1976. $100. to $395. Gatling Gun
