Other than one being chambered in the .38 special and the other one in .357 Magnum and any cosmetic differences, are the Detective Special II and the Magnum Carry virtually the same gun?
If Colt were smart enough to bring these back in 2 ,3 and 4 inch versions ,the competition would be in serious trouble...
yes it's a fair price, actually more than fair, and if you're into collecting or investing there is no way that it would be a superfluous purchase.A LGS here in the Atlanta area currently has a DSII on the shelf for $700 [probably OTD], which i probably a fair price. I already have a Magnum Carry that I bought new in 1998 so it would be a superfluous purchase for me.
I'm trying very hard not to become a collector , and I've never sold a gun for a profit so I don't qualify as an investor. Perhaps, though, I should consider the latter.yes it's a fair price, actually more than fair, and if you're into collecting or investing there is no way that it would be a superfluous purchase.
