The square butt was standard 'til 1933,then it was rounded.I suppose it was possible to get a D.S. in square butt after 1933,as that style was continued for a while on the identical framed Police Positive Special(and even a special run of Cobras for a foreign govt.) I had a 1952 Pol. Pos. Spec. 4" square butt at one time. Bud

Yes.the butt Frame is square,but as you know,Colt stocks that fit these models,extend beneath the bottom,and their wood in in the round butt configuration. I think this was done by Colt to save production costs,and the only 2 Colts that I can think of,that had "stocks" the same length as this short grip frame,are the Courier,circa 1954 and the Agent. My Courier,in .32 w/"warm handloads",isn't bad to control,with a grip adapter,but I fired a pals early Agent,and with regular .38 Specials,its a "squirmer"! Bud
