Guys: I noticed the marking "INS D" stamped on the left side of the frame beneath the stocks on my late '60s production .38 Special Officers Model Match. Pic is attached. Can anyone tell me what the significance of this marking is? Thanks! Charlie

Immigration and Naturalization Service?????

NOPE, it's a factory inspection mark common on Colt revolvers of that time frame.

So is the "D"

Thanks, DFaris. As usual you are 'firstest with the mostest'. I'll sleep easier tonight knowing that the marking is not some knucklehead's initials or the Colt factory code for 'major defects detected'. I appreciate your response. Charlie
