I just inherited my Grandparents house. Up in an attic closet, there were these!
They were my Grandfathers service revolvers (Chicago PD - retired in '86).
The middle one is a Colt Trooper (from 1957) and the other two are S&W Chief Specials (both from 1956). All of them are .38's.

They all need some cleaning but otherwise it seems like all functions work. I can't wait to fire these babies!

That is an impressive collection! Besides the fact that they are classic revolvers and they were your
Grandfather's, think of all of the great stories they could tell if they could talk. Thanks for sharing
that photo.

Those are awesome! How wonderful that you now have them and can appreciate them; they're a great link to your family's past -and hopefully to future generations, too, as those firearms will likely keep working for many years to come! Enjoy holding them, cleaning them, and shooting them!:rolleyes:

I'm sorry for how you came about them but they sure do look nice. Enjoy them for many years to come and in good health.

Guns with a family history are always special. Those three should all be sweet shooters as well!

There's a special connection with guns that are handed down from blood relatives, I hunt with my late Fathers deer rifle every season and in the deer woods, when all is quiet, I stare at that beautiful wood and deep blue metal and the flood of memories starts rolling in. Take those revolvers and shoot them, your Grandfather will be smiling down on you.
