do any of you have experience with a model 63 5" barrel ? I have a 3" barrel and am not happy with the accuracy. However my 3" model 60 .357mag is very accurate. I would think the opposite would be true because of the heavier recoil.

I have 2 older SP101s one in 32 H&R mag and one a6shot 22 lr. Both are 4" barrels and very accurate. I also have a newer 3" in the 32 mag that shoots very well too.

I've heard mixed reviews on the new sp101 in 22lr. But the ones that complained it sounded like Ruger fixed them.

I own a 63-0 four incher had Clements replace the red ramp front sight with one I could see/ Greatly improved my accuracy with this handgun.

I can't shoot my 63 well. The grip is too small for my hand.

I have shot the Colt Woodsman well for over 50 years now. That's the 22 pistol that I much prefer.

Savage_99, I had the same problems with my 63 until I had Clements do his magic. Great old Colt semi auto by the way. I've read Castners Cutthroats were issued these during the Alaskan campaign in WWII.

Off subject, but I shoot that same Colt. They are a collectors items now, but it is such a great pistol it will just continue to be a shooter.

I have a model 34 (blued twin to the 63) with a 4" barrel. I'm don't get great accuracy with it, I shoot my 3" 60-15 better but the J frame .22 is a sweet little gun. It's working great for my 12 year old grandson who has been shooting it since he was 9.

Where can I find the grip insert shown in your pic? I want one for a Colt Police Positive Special.
Thanks, G66

Not inserts pure Sambar stag from StagHag way back when. Grip adapter by Tyler.

I wanted a 'kit gun' revolver years back. First got the Taurus 94(?), what a dissappintment (no internet then) then traded it off with another gun for a clean used 63. Pretty, but wouldnt group very well, just a can-shooter and I wanted a squirrel head size group shooter. And I knew how to tell the difference and had the eyes then.
The 63 is long gone and I do not miss it, unlike the 2nd one I mentioned above that I traded for it. It was an older Colt's Trooper 4" 38Spl. that I thought was 'redundant' at the time. (picture me banging my head on my desk here).
If you can find, and afford, the forerunner in the Mdl 34/Kit Gun you may have better luck, no guarrantee.
