The Shield New Service Long-Range Free Pistol was a competition revolver designed by UK-based firearms company Shield Gunmakers Ltd.

OverviewEdit

This revolver started life as a Colt New Service revolver which the designer, Andy Wooldridge, found discarded in a bin at a workshop. He modified it into a competition revolver for the International Long Range Pistol Shooters' Association (ILRSPA) "Pocket Pistol" competition. It was chambered for .45 ACP and operated in double-action. The square notch Beeman rear sights were elevated and adjustable, and the front sight was shrouded in a Parker Hale tunnel.
