    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.

    “It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carry the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life, or death ---- it shall be life.” - Ten Bears - “The Outlaw Josey Wales”

    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.

    Collects, wichita, OIF2 and 13 others like this.

    Colt Detective Special, Third Issue, LNIB, Nickel Finish, .38 Special

    I am still deciding whether or not I should fire this supposedly LNIB snubbie, in mint condition. I am also still trying to figure out how to post photos.

    Are these factory engraved? Whether they are or aren't they are all incredible. I especially love the first one. I have to say I prefer engraved revolvers where the fluting is left UN-engraved. It really looks much better to me. When the flutes are engraved it looks a little too much. When the flutes are plain it really sets off the rest of the engraving and is far more impacting.
    But they are all amazing regardless.
