Here is a DS I recently acquired. It's not that often I come across a nickel DS at gun shows or gun shops. It shoots good (I put tiny drops of orange nail polish (from walmart) on sights and they are much easier to see and get a clearsight picture. I love the looks of a beautifully blued gun I think the best but shiny nickel draws me in also.
Someone on this forum (I can't remember who now),mentioned using the fingernail polish so I tried it. It seems better than all the other stuff Ive tried even the specialty paint for sights.
That, my friend, is one gorgeous Detective Special!!! :cool:

Thanks Colt-SL. For under $500 otd, I'm real happy with it,especially since it shoots real well. It does have a little round spot thru the nickel right at the end of the barrel- If you look close you can see it on the right side photo. If I look at it REAL close and UP close,depending upon the angle of the light, It isn't quite as mirrorlike as in the photos on the right sideplate. There are a few little dings but they are not through the nickel. But when I look at it without FULL scrutiny, It just looks Great!
