We see so many newer DS pics. Here's my 1953.Coltwood stocks. (read brown plastic) Looks like alot of holster wear, but locks up like a bank vault. Thinning blue that has a silver sheen. Not afraid to take this baby out of the safe.
Wow great photos.. One of my favorite "D" frames. I have a 1951 model also with grooved trigger and hammer, but with shorter ejection rod, also Coltwood (plastic) grips. First model had square bottom grips until about 1933. Again great looking photos............Henri
