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.













Thanks for looking.

Good lookin' piece, Guy.

RC- I think grooved triggers started postwar.....'48, maybe.

Someone'll be along and correct me, I'm sure.

there is just something about the bluing on those guns that make them remarkable.

Lookin' good, BW. Nice Stags.

Anyone notice how the Pony moves around on the sideplate on these?

Mine's closer to the hammer, same as BW's.

Guy's is closer to center.

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

1966 2nd issue & 1974 3rd.

Both are "blue collar" examples, with new rubber grips. They are both excellent shooters. And I spent less than $400 for the both of 'em.

I actually prefer the older model due to the superior sight picture ¬ó front sight has factory serations at the rear of the blade.
