Colt NM Mid Range Automatic Pistol 38spc (clt0$nmmr)
COLT Mid Range 38 Special
Caliber 38 special - wad cutter - only - it does not shoot hollow points, round nose or semi wad cutter ammo.
JUST WAD CUTTER AMMO!
1 - 5 rd Origional Colt mag & 1 5rd Mfgr Unknown Mag (excellent quality) & 1 5rd Triple K mag
5" Barrel
Condition: Used / Very Good
Other:  Polished Blue
             Eagle Grips - appears to be Ebony
              Aftermarket gun lock is included.
             Trigger pull 4 1/4 lbs 5 out of 5 times.       
             The original mag has the slide stop tang broken off so it will not lock the slide back.  The tang is an envelope.

When we got the gun some one had used a 45acp extractor in this gun which caused it to jam consistently.  We were able to fit the extrator so it functions fine.  When you view the test firing below it is with the fitted extractor.
We also loated an original Colt 38spcl extracto and it is included in the package.   

Based on serial # I figure it was made ~1961.
