Default Have You Heard Of A "New Helvetia" Or "NHM" Gun Dealer In Sac.?

Someone wrote me about a 1953 Colt Police Positive he has that has the markings "NHM Co. Sac" on it and wondered if I recognized it. I said I didn't but found a "New Helvta" on "New Helvetia" marked Uzi discussed in another forum. Perhaps it was a dealer that supplied police departments, I don't know. There's an importer listed now (New Helvetia) but they don't mention guns. Do these initials or this name ring a bell to anyone? Thanks in advance.

Yup, it was the Old Sac Armory. They had three or four business that they ran out of the shop

Just to clarify, NHM was their importer name. If you remember the good 'ol days, you'll remember their ads in Shotgun News. I forwarded this to OP, but there's some good info here:
