    So I put Hogue grips on them because for me they are much more comfortable to shoot.

    I comprehend how a projectile can, ôlose velocity", but don't understand how a projectile can, "loose velocity".

    I am surprised no one mentioned the red ramp front sight. That question of availability comes up now and then and I see that your box has what appears to be a factory sticker noting that feature.

    Was the red ramp sight supposed to glow in the dark?

    I don't think so, not back then. Today's sights are far different but back then it added extreme contrast and made sighting the gun easier with faster front sight acquisition.

    I got a 1977 Colt Det Special nickel, which I bought new in 1977.

    Great gun. I love the cutout trigger guard bobbed hammer. The $500 bill dates the gun well.

    Got this DS from my mother-in-law, she doesn't remember much about it other than her husband got it for her in the 80's, and she pretty sure he added the orange front site, wider trigger and the grips.
    Anyone know if they came in this two tone finish? Any info would be great (no other info to give at this time). Thanks
