    Colt us shipped detective special

    Found this US shipped Detective Special at the Colorado Gun Collector show in Denver this past weekend. It letters to the US Government. Shipped in 1944. Notice the square butt. On the underside of the barrel there is a punch dot. I do not have the letter with me at this time. This revolver is near flawless. There is not even a turn line on the cylinder.

    Does the letter state what agency it was sent to?

    Did the person from whom you purchased the gun realize it was a US shipped DS?

    I enjoyed looking at it with you at the show. Looks like we both did well digging with our pick axes.

    Bear with me, I’m still learning. Does the punch mark indicate US shipped?
    Thank you.

    It does. I don't have the letter with me and don't remember which agency it went to. I have a good memory, but it is short!

    It does in this situation. Maybe some of the more knowledgeable forum members will fill in the blanks for us. Anytime I see a square butt DT or similar, I always look for the punch dot. Same for Colt model M's.
