    I just read this thread from start to... here... and it gives me a sick feeling in my stomach.

    I HAD a 4 inch Peacekeeper, nearly perfect. Only very little holster wear. Traded it for a semi-auto a few years back. Besides missing it I found out later that I could have gotten twice the value/price for it.

    Oh well, I guess I got what I wanted.
    My Dad still has his 4" Trooper MK III. I think it's nickle.

    I have an regular production, absolutely perfectly blued Detective Special built in 1973 that looks like it was hand fitted and finished by a master craftsman in some custom shop.

    From time to time I look at current production revolvers in gun shops, and they do not come close to having the action, fit or "feel" that this gun has.

    Trouble is I can't bring myself to shoot it, much like the previous owner. That's what the Taurus are for!

    Detective Special with rather unusual three inch barrel. I certainly would like to know what percentage of the DS production had this barrel - it must not have been a huge number.

    Don't have the camera handy but I have a blued six inch Trooper MKIII. It is the wife's primary weapon (she doesn't carry) and what I would take if I were wandering where OC is legal and I might encounter unfriendly critters.

    Guevera, I like your Colt and I like your photo background. The period newspaper really gives life to your composition. Very nice job.

    All of my suppressed feelings are coming out while reading this thread and I am realizing how much I have been in need of a four inch Python...

    How did I make it without one all of these years?

    Colt 1911s and S&W revolvers kept me going I guess...

    Ok, I need to go watch Magnum Force now to get my fix...

    Just this morning I took a few new photos of this old Colt for another forum and also to record its serial number, something I'd never done before. These Model 1917s are great revolvers. Real thumpers in .45 ACP.

    This was my first ever Colt revolver, purchased over 30 years ago. It has seen more use than any other Colt revolver I have and has been sturdy and dependable. It looks ratty but has always looked that way. I've added some holster wear over the years carrying it while hiking. I love the huge old Colt New Service revolvers of which the Model 1917 is a variant. They're my very favorite Colt revolver.

    Since it's out I'm headed to the range with a couple of boxes of ammo to enjoy it before it gets too hot here.








    Many mistake the butt number for the revolver's serial number but its not. On a Colt Model 1917 the true serial number is on the frame just inside the crane. This revolver's serial number is in the 263000 range.
