Item Description

* 1979 Manufactured

* No Interstate Sales Tax


The Colt Detective Special is a six-shot, carbon steel framed, 2" or 3" barreled, double action revolver, and the first example of a class of firearms known as "snubnose revovlers". Made by Colt's Manufacturing Company, this model revolver, as the name "Detective Special" suggests, was intended to be a concealed weapon used by plainclothes police detectives. Introduced in 1927, the Detective Special was the first short-barreled revolver produced with a modern swing-out frame. It was designed from the outset to be chambered for higher-powered cartridges such as the .38 Special considered to be a powerful caliber for a concealable pocket revolver of the day. The Detective Special uses a slightly smaller frame than the Colt Official Police or Smith & Wesson Model 10 (K-frame) revolvers, but is larger than the five-shot Smith & Wesson Mdoel 36/ Model 38 / Model 42 (J-frame) revolvers.

This Colt is a nice Detective Special .38 revolver. Blued finish is original and in great condition. Nice Wood grips. The 6 shot cylinder locks up tight.
