And Just a Few More. My "Trio" of Detective Specials (Left to Right... 1980 E-Nickel, 1981 Blue, 1978 Bright Nickel) all LNIB. I just noticed the different style grips on the E-Nickel gun from 1980. This one was from the Colt Custom Shop. Might this explain the apparent "out of date" grips?

I will add my pics of newly acquired DS. 1975 model with Pachs. There are a few light scratches and just a bit of cloudiness around the latch and Rampant Colt. Overall very pleased with it. Replaced the Pachs with orginal DS stocks.

Here is my 59' Detective Special as it came to me with its period correct "gunfighter mods". It has just the right amount of finish wear to give it perfect "Wabi" in the aesthetic balanced sense (quoted from a friend of mine).
