    A Colt 2nd Gen Match Target Woodsman

    This is a pistol my Dad built as a 6" model in the early 50's when he worked at Colt.
    He gifted me the pistol about 25 years ago, and the 6" barrel just didn't suit me. In 1999, I found a 4" Colt M-T barrel and re-barreled the gun myself. I then, added a trigger over travel stop, and refinished the pistol.
    This little pistol became my favorite carry, in the woods because its so compact and light weight.
    In 1999, no one made a dedicated holster for a 2nd gen M-T Woodsman, so I bought some leather and made my own holster and Mag pouch.
    I like this little pistol for walking the woods, but I can't shoot it quite as well as my S&W Mod 41, or my Kart 1911/22..............But hey, My Dad originally built this pistol, and it's special for that reason.

    I hope you enjoy the pics...........

    Tom that's a beautiful gun, thank you for the great picture and the story that comes with it. I too am a real fan of the Colt Woodsman pistols, mine is a 1934 vintage first model standard gun with the 6 inch barrel. When it comes to 22 pistols for me, there's my Woodsman and then there's the rest, it's my absolute favorite and always has been.

    Wow, that is special beyond words. My Dad was a master carpenter, whenever I use his tools I think of him, as you likely think of your Dad when you shoot the pistol that he built. I also have a 2nd gen match target as well as examples of all of the top of the line USA made 22 pistols. The Colt Match Target is by far the most beautiful 22 pistol ever made. You have something really special. Treasure it, keep it for the rest of your days. I would never sell mine. Congrats.
