I took the stocks off my 1931 Bankers Special today to give it the Eezox "rinse" some veteran posters recommend, and was surprised by what I saw. Instead of the three horizontal holes behind the medallions, the holes are vertical!. I'm too old and dumb (mostly dumb) to do pictures, but just imagine the center hole in the correct position and the two adjacent holes rotated clockwise 90 degrees to positions directly above and below the center hole.

I have square butt 1932 and round butt 1936 Detective Specials, plus a number of pre-war Police Positives with checked walnut, plus the usual reference books, and this is a new one on me. And I see absolutely no other difference between the BS stocks and the others. All ears point to the "L." :)

Sure would appreciate an answer, or even an opinion.

The purpose of the two outer holes was to allow a punch to bend the insides of the cup medallion to fit it in place. Rotating the holes 90 degrees is strange and one that I have never seen, but it works the same. I'm sure we can all be a little off some days. Jackson

Well, I feel pretty guilty enjoying everyone else's photos and not posting any of mine, so I managed to get the stocks on Photobucket.


Well, I clicked on the IMG Code, came back to this post and right clicked, hit "Paste" and nothing happened.

skilled--if you want to PM me your e-mail address, I'll try the e-mailing option on the list of choices, or maybe someone can tell me where I'm going wrong. I knew this was going to be frustrating, but at least they're on Photobucket now--I don't know what will happen when I log out. :(

Thank you, skilled. And, an added bonus--those hotties at the bottom! Wonder where those are coming from? I've noticed them on other recent photos and they make me wish I were young again....
