Can You ID This Revolver? I'm at a Loss.

I've inherited this nifty little, but heavy, Colt double-action revolver. I've no idea as to its vintage or even model. I was hoping that some of the good folks here could ID it for me.

Here's what I do have on it... black plastic grips with Colt logo. Heavy steel frame with ejector rod exposed. Fixed sights, but a heavy barrel. # on bottom of grip frame is 212524. Barrel; says COLT DA 38. Etched inside the frame where the crane seats is H-590, as well as on the thumb release for the cylinder. It holds six cartridges and has a 3 inch barrel.

I've attached three decent pictures. Any help would be most appreciated.

There are three things in this life that make me smile ear to ear -- Mastiffs, Magnums, and Merlots. Don't try to take any of them from me.

Looks like a Colt Pocket Positive.

Appears similar to a "New Army and Navy" model. BUT should have Colt markings and patent dates on barrel. If there is nothing on barrel, perhaps it's been rebarreled, with aftermarket parts?
