    Question Anybody know how to find when my Colt Detective Special was "born"?

    I have two Colt revolvers and I'm trying to find out when they were made.

    One is (I think) a third generation Detective Special serial #B500**.

    The second is a Colt Agent serial #B942**.

    Anybody got a book or link with this info?

    1972 for both would be my guess.

    You can call Colt directly and they will tell you the year they were made.
