    Default Colt police positive special replacement grips?

    Hello,

    Colt newbie dumb question.
    I'm looking for replacement grips for a Colt police positive special
    serial#2114XX to replace the fat target grips on it.
    Just looking for an origional style grip and found many different ones, just confused to know which one would fit?
    If you need a serial or picture to figure it out I can post that.
    Here's the link to the replacement grips I'm looking at:

    Jeff

    Depends on the age of the gun.
    Very early 1900's models had a "narrow" grip frame with a narrower distance between the trigger guard and the front strap of the grip.

    Post-WWII guns often had a rounded butt, and post-1965 guns had a short "stubby" grip with wood that overlapped on the bottom.

    Assuming you have a standard long, square butt as common on the 1920's through 40's guns, most any of them will work. Probably the best looking is the fleur-de-le pattern as used in the pre-1930's days.
    After the early 30's, Colt went to checkered walnut with silver Colt medallions.

    Here's the actual manufacturers the replicas, may be more info for you there:

    2114XX was made in 1920. The numbers that year started at 190000 and ended at 224999.

    You model has the early "narrow frame" with a narrower gap between the trigger guard and the grip frame.

    Your gun has been extensively modified. The front sight is not original, and the frame has been machined out and an adjustable sight has been added.
    The rear sight "appears" to be a post-war 1960's type Colt Accro rear sight.
