    Very interesting. So this is basically an early Cobra with a Police Positive Special barrel? Congratulations on a great find. From here it looks like a brand new gun. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Super nice gun! So the lightweight has an alloy frame in 1951 already? I was gonna tell you how much you suck for finding guns like that when I don't, but I'm a nice guy so I won't...

    A clone of that is for sale in a CT store, with the letter. Newington Gun Exchange. I think it was $1,500. FWIW.

    Very nice. I have previously found a “lightweight” Detective within 100-200 numbers serial also in CT. Wondering why that is since these guns were supposed to be shipped to out-of-state destinations.
