C.O.M.

stands for Contrini Officine Meccanica. It is a now defunct manufacturer in Gordone, It., 24 Via Aprille (SP?). Contrini was the name of the owner operator, first name Giovanni (I thnk).

Your pistol is a dead ringer for a Sheriff's Model I have from C.O.M. in .36. Date Code AC.

It was a sweet shooter until I experienced a chain fire event which loosened the arbor. It is now a wall hanger because I think the pistol is haunted.

Clean it up and shoot it. But use light powder loads.
