    Yep, I look every time for the DS. It's just a matter of time when someone reaches that age when they have to give them up. Sad, because my years are now numbered too! No more interest in those terms "lifetime warranty" or "it will last forever".

    Those Detective Specials look fine to me. The hammer shroud is a bit uncommon.

    hi guys , the hammer shroud is a bit odd , when bought the Colt on the old shotgun news , it came without the shroud and the holes plugged , found a shroud and set it up , bad thing it has the small trigger and it give me a blisterwhen firing approx 200 rds .
    the backstrap is marked PA18XX a special order gun
    PA may be Port Aurthority , just a thought , rojo

    hi Jack , yes are old Herretts , perhaps made by the late Steve Herretts?? I have a spare set if you need a set ?? rojo

    My dad has my grandpa's detective special. It is more of a modern version 81' I think. He doesn't CC it but it is in his nightstand drawer.

    I wish I had a Colt revolver! I was supposed to receive my grandfathers police positive, but it was stolen when my dad's house was broke into years ago.

    I loved shooting my friends 4" Python! His was stolen too.

    Another friend had a Det. Special, but I never got to shoot it before he moved.

    I do own a Colt AR-15 "govt. carbine" and a Colt "officers" 1911 which I'll never part with.

    Say what you will... I've always thought Colt to be of high quality and they do seem to hold value extremely well. Try pricing a Python today if you can find one.

    I would love a Colt DA revolver but haven't seen one I could afford yet.

    I carried a 6" Python when I started in Law Enforcement (you weren't cool in that department unless you carried a Snake, and I wanted to be cool), but when I left there and had to make some real money I sold it. That was 1986 and I've been kicking myself ever since!

    I had my Colt in my nightstand for years -- carrying 158gr. SWCs. Now I have some original Jay Scott target grips on it and seem to take it to the range every time I go! It is a fun gun to shoot.

    Hi Mgoblue;

    Is that an Official Police? The revolver has a nice remaining blue finish. It likely has an action that is just as smooth as any Python too.

    All the 4, 5, and 6 inch Colt and Smith & Wesson service revolvers, as carried by America's lawmen for so many years, make excellent shooters. They're so pleasant to use at the range.

    Thanks for your comments on the gun. Yea, the bluing on the gun is still pretty good. And yes, it is an Official Police revolver (4" barrel). It is a smooth gun to shoot -- either double action or single action. The problem with having the target grips on it, however, is that it does not allow me to fire the gun with my weak (left) hand, because of the thumb rest for the right hand. That's why it has been moved from my nightstand . . . replaced by a Sig p226.
