    Inherited this Colt Super 38 back in 1989. Finding ammo was a problem, which is what got me into reloading! I haven't had it out in a while, so I think it's time. Thanks for the reminder! <br> It was a military competition pistol with a match grade barrel. The frame is from 1948, the slide from sometime later on (but still old). It's shoots like a competition gun.

    Great looking Supers out there for sure. The cartridge is nothing to sneeze at either. Underwood and others market a 124 gr at 1,350 fps, with 500 + ft. lbs of energy. and in an all steel full sized handgun, recoil is very manageable.

    Long Live the Super 38!

    I got an E-mail yesterday from GOG saying they have the Colt Classic in stock 45 acp, (3 of them). I ordered one. I think the price of $725 for a Colt Government model much like the pre 70 series is hard to beat. After I ordered mine I went back to GOG too see how many were left and it said 0.

    Hi, All;
    For the folks that like the mild recoil of the .38 super round, and its many good qualities, packed into a 1911 size pistol. You might like to try the .38 ACP cartridge. It came along a bit before the .38 super, has the exact physical dimensions as the .38 Super, and will function in the .38 Super pistol, with even milder recoil.
