Hi just came on board. I've been wanting to buy a snub nosed revolver and have gotten down to either a Colt Detective Special or Smith and Wesson Model 36 or 32 Terrier. Can someone give me a reason to buy one or the other in terms of quality, finish and function. The Colt DS I'm attrached to is made in 1952 the Smith and Wesson I haven't gotten down to a specific pistol. In general which has deeper blueing in the early fifties production in terms of each company. I am more drawn to the Colt.
