3\" Nickel (this time with photo!)

Here we have a Detective Special in nickel with the not so common 3" barrel. When was the last time you ran across one the these?

Love it. One of those would be a nice complement to my 2nd issue. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

VERY VERY Nice!
Does anybody know how many 3"ers were made? Let alone nickel?

Re: 3\" Nickel (this time with photo!)

SA99054, I have no idea how many DS's were made in 3" yet alone 3" nickel. Two of the guys here (Dframe and shel49) both have a 3" in blue, so as a forum we have pretty good representation on that particular gun. Meaning they are found here in our collective collection.

I have sought a 3" blue for a while now and just don't seem to run across them. And I'd be willing to bet that Dframe and shel49 aren't about to part with theirs to help my 3" collection.

Much glory goes to the Pythons, but IMHO, the D-Frames are also pretty special and very beautiful guns. Thanks for the responses everyone.

Note: There is a fellow at the Medina,Ohio gun show that had a 3" blue Cobra with shrouded barrel like these DSs for sale this past June...didn't bother to ask the price...He deals in Colts mostly...always has a lot of nice ones...

I just looked at a 3 inch cobra in 22. Way more than I could afford. Made an offer anyway and was turned down.

An older 3" Cobra .22 showed up yesterday on Gunsamerica and must have sold instantly, as it was marked sold by the time I found it. Price was $500, I think.

I would post a link but the ad apparently has already been pulled.

Re: 3\" Nickel (this time with photo!)

I found an identical nickel 3-inch Cobra like yours-with the shrouded ejector rod, here in CA about one month ago! I almost bought this Colt, because I knew that it was rare! It was in mint condition(And, was complete with the box and all papers)but, I decided not to buy it at the last minute, in view of this gun not having the correct wood grips on it(It had Colt's neoprene grips instead!)! It also had been lightly fired! But, it looked just as mint as W-23's above! Congratulations on finding a real neat colt!

I saw that when it came up. I cried as all of my money is going into the house that I am building. I even asked the wife if she could make an exeption, she just laughed, and I turned around back to the screen in defeat.

It's always better to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission. Of course that could be why my wife is usually Royally P.O.'d at me! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Re: 3\" Nickel (this time with photo!)

Wish I'd seen that one on gunsamerica. Thats at least $150 less than the one I was looking at. Please note! Anyone who finds ANY 3 inch detective,or cobra in any calibre PLEASE let me know.
