Colt Detective Special, 38, 2-inch, Nickel  Guns > Pistols > Colt Double Action Revolvers- Pre-1945
Description: Up for auction is my Splendid classic Colt Dick Special Pre-War (First Issue) round butt with better than good original gorgeous deep nickel finish. No milkiness, abrasions, gouges, or scratches.

PPGS 90-95%. Locks-up tightly, bore is excellent, little used and minimum carry wear. Probably a safe or drawer weapon. Please look closely at the photographs and make your own rating. This sidearm is super collectible for Colt enthusiasts. It is a Curio & Relic firearm according to ATF.

Pre-war 1936 manufacture, S/N 4497**, non-shrouded barrel, fine walnut grips with silver-tone escutcheons. Cross-hatched hammer, trigger, and cylinder release. Stippled and matte top strap to break up glare. Two large areas (on the grip strap) and a few very small areas of flaking nickel, which is otherwise mirror-like. Incredible for a 78-year-old iconic Colt at the top of their game!

NOTICE TO PREPPERS: The many advantages of revolvers will be appreciated in case of social turmoil. There is no forgetting to unlock the safety in a panic; it cannot jam; it will accept a wide variance in any .38 Special cartridge or load including hand loads; anyone over the age of 10 can shoot it without training or practice if necessary; no failure to feed, failure to fire, failure to eject, no jamming ever! Moreover the fastidious will appreciate not having to leave empty expended shells behind on the ground with fingerprints, ejector marks, and other clues for friend or foe to ID the shooter. This fine gun is extremely barter-able and a prestige weapon for anyone.
