    Here's an LEO owned 1965 4" beater I found a while back wearing Hogue rubbers. Found a pair of period correct stocks for less than $100 that matched the wear pretty well and they're on it to this...

    You might get lucky by entering the serial on the Colt website. It'll tell you the model code for a particular serial number. I forget the 3" code

    Yes Rod, the third issue was the first D/S with the shrouded barrel.
  6. Any other B prefix shrouded Det.Specialís out there?

    I'd posted last week about a 3rd issue D/S, serial B396xx, that I came across a week or so ago. I'm thinking that it has to be one of the first 3rd issues manufactured.

    Did the 2nd and 3rd issues...

    Without going into detail, others will, you'd be surprised. Lots of sharp edges will unfortunately be gone.

    When you come across your records inspcalahan, I'd be curious about the serial. I've seen a 1971 SECOND issue that was numbered about 6000 below mine, but nothing later.

    1971 D/S Third issue?

    Looked at this Third issue D/S serial # B39xxx today and when I went to the Colt site it comes back as a 1971( Proof House says the same). I thought the Third issue didn't start until 1973???

    Looks to be an 8" barrel based on the barrel stamping. May have been a hunting gun?

    Pretty sure the grips aren't original as the medallions appear silver and the half moon's were gone by 1976. Great looking shooter none the less!

    Looks like it would be a very nice shooter, and since it'll never be a collector piece I'd save the $800-$1,000 that you'd drop for correct stocks and re-bluing.

    Sorry for the misinterpretation 5mphx3, maybe if you'd started your second sentence in post #9 with "in an effort to correct the problem".... there would have been less confusion.

    Have to agree with the last 2 posts, anyone who knows anything about revolvers knows what a Python looks like. Why add the stamps knowing that then it HAS been altered since leaving the factory.

    Nice looking piece! I would have to say that the lack of any nomenclature on the left side is truly an enigma. I'd be curious to see the end label on the box though.
