This is a discussion on Colt Detective Special and its Brethren within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I'm just ranting now, but the thing is, it's not like someone else couldn't make something comparable!...

    That's very true Euc, but there is something special about that old Colt Royal Blue.

    Well I realize that a big part of it is that these guns were made by Colt back in Colt's glory days. I honestly don't think we'll ever see guns quite like this ever again.

    See, I like Colts. I really do. But I like the Colts that are almost as old as I am or older that are difficult to find and often expensive! Hence I don't have too many.

    I own a nickle Det Spcl, 3rd Gen. Bought it from one of our POs back in the late 1970s. Every time he saw me carrying it, he'd ask me if it was the one he sold me and if I'd sell it back to him. My answer was yes and no . . . plus he wouldn't really want to know how much he'd have to pay me for it! [I remember paying him $85 for it.]

    It is now a safe queen, although my Wife may get to use it if one of the various grips I have for it fit her comfort level. The pachmyrs on it make the grip too big for her.

    They are NOT a lightweight gun, being all steel. I just weighed mine and it is 25.4 oz empty. Very nice gun, I still like it but I no longer carry/shoot wheel guns.

    Little late to the post but heres my 2 cents:

    Colt Dick Spl's for serious carry go with the late 2nd gen or 3rd gen, go to Waller Bags and get the Hammer Shroud and have it installed. change grips on it to suit, and go qual..

    THe Agent, Banker Spl, are good ones but I have found over time don't stand the useage

    Not a Colt fan but - sad to see so much out of production now, which of course has driven some of the prices sky high.

    If you could find an SF-VI, they might not be considered so collectible?

    I have certainly liked mine.
