Re: Detective Special \"P\" suffix

Well, there were no P's up to and into 1978 per proofhouse. After the S, they used RD and AD and AE that I know of. Didn't someone ask about DBs with a P serial? Call or email Colt to find out for sure. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif Here's what I was thinking of:

It seems to me the D frame serials must have been intermixed in recent years. According to mine, AD and AE were around 1982-83, then in 1993ish the RD started. That might mean around 1980-82, but Colt knows for sure. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Thanks, I wasn't sure either. The SN was given to me, in other words I didn't see it, so it could be wrong.

I was mostly quoting Diamondbacks there. They also had some DS, Cobras, and Agents that had intermixed serial numbers with HA, W, and AB prefixes.

To my knowledge DBs from 1978 through 1985 followed S, P, AA and AB prefix numbers.

The "P series ran like this:

1981, the "P series began, and started at P01001, and ended at P36849.
1982...P36850 to P61990.
1983...P61991 to P73251K
1984...P73252K to end of "P" series at P79999K
