    Talking Colt Detective Special photo thread...

    I did not find an 'official' DS photo thread. If there is one, please include this. If not, please Colt fans, have at it.

    Many of us love the little snubbies and, to me, there's no better snubnose than the well-built and beautifully proportioned Colt Detective Special.

    This was my first ever Gunbroker purchase. Vintage 1975.

    I'll play....

    First is my 1959 Detective Special. Purchased at a gun show many years ago for cheap money.


    The second is a 1965 Detective Special NYPD off duty\undercover gun. It was reworked by Colt in the 1970s after a nasty fall down some concrete steps that bent the frame.

    Well Those are all mighty fine looking snubbies!

    Since this thread has attracted the Detectives of the forums, I've got a question.

    I have the opportunity to pick up a NIB Detective from about '76. It looks identical to Colt-SL's

    Would you fire and carry such a gun? I really don't have any safe queens, I shoot all of my guns. I really want something I can carry..............

    I'd be happy to bring that '76 Detective Special into service but I'm not into just having a gun and not using it.

    Here's my circa 1966 Detective Special with a recently added Tyler T-Grip. Lots of folks love the look of T-Grips but I think they look dreadful. They do add a good measure of control and shoot-ability to a revolver without having to go to tacky, clingy, and unappealing rubber grips.
