Saw a nice 3rd issue (1974 s/n) Detective Special for $265, and I couldn't resist it. Take a look . . .

Those are the same stocks that I saw on the Agent,that I felt looked like(a tad)Herretts. Good buy on the D.S. , Thirties! $60 bucks less than the Agent,in as good as shape,and you can feel more at ease with +Ps than the Agent. Bud

folks, the gun is a very good shooter, although she needed a bit of Breakfree CLP in the trigger and hammer. I love the look of this gun, but I must admit, I prefer the front sight blade on my 1966 2nd issue. But that doesn't mean I can't get to like this ramp front sight. I'll have to get used to it.

So far I've shot factory ammo with the wood grip in the photo. I'll also swap them for some Pachmayr Copacs I have to see the difference. But first I wantr to get used to this gun, and shoot my own reloads.

Thanks for all the great info and encouragement here and elsewhere . . .

These are the standard 1972 Colt "D" frame "Combat" grips Colt used on most of the "D" frame guns up until the mid-1990's.

Some sources:
Gun Parts often have original Colt versions, http://www.e-gunparts.com/

These show up on Ebay regularly, and usually sell for low prices. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=39425&item=7136994969& rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW

CDNN sells exact copies, although usually not made of as good a wood as genuine colt.
