Recently bought a third issue Colt Detective Special with a three inch harrel in mint condition. The serial number is P6152. I called Colt whose representative said she was unable to find the year it was made and transfered me to the "achive" section where no one was in. Can anyone give me the year of manufacture for this pistol. It is absolutely beautiful and was bought for three hundred dollars fro a well know dealer. I'd like to kick myself for selling a 1960 Det. Spl. I traded earlier this year thinking it would be easy to replace but have found the prices are about a hundred more than what I paid for that one.
