Posted about two weeks ago about quandry over whether to buy Colt DS or S&W Model 36. Ended up buying a 1962 S&W Model 36 while waiting for the Colt Det Spec. to arrive. Just got the Colt Det Spec. Serial# A332XX. The Colt fits my hand much better than the S&W and the trigger pull appears to be much better than the S&Ws. Although I realize that these are subjective observations I really am more impressed by the Colt. By the way the Colt was purchased from RM Vivas and it was a good if not better than the discription of it his site. I guess I'm a Colt fan after all these years of waiting to start to acquire vintage revolvers in which I thought I'd prefer the S&W. Can anyone also tell me the year of manufacture for the Colt?

I prefer both. The S&W J frame works for me much better in the pocket. My Colt Agent is better in a holster with an extra round to boot. The Agent does fit the pocket well just a little bigger and more noticable. All in all I would be very happy with either. You did good and have the perfect balance in my opinion.
