Colt Detective Special


Photo From: TJ Parmele - Album: Handguns--Classic or Antique

Description: What we have here is a Colt Detective Special manufactured in 1972 according to the S/N "B" Prefix. This puts it near the last of the Second variation phase, which has Detective Special revolvers  manufactured from 1947 to 1972. Available calibers were .32 New Police, .38 New Police or .38 Special. Two or three inch barrels were available. Second variation grips were made of plastic from 1947 to 1954 and wood grips were used thereafter. Wrap-around wood grips were introduced in 1966. Mine has aftermarket Pachmeyer grips that are just NICE to hold in the hand.
