Just a quick question. I noticed on the slide of them, the word caliber is spelt "calibre" but says they were made in Hartford, CT. Can someone explain that to me who knows the history? And Reinhard, the two pistols look to be in great shape

I think that calibre or caliber are both correct spellings
here's a site where you can find the most important information regarding these colt models
