WOW! ABSOLUTELY BRAND NEW IN THE BOX COLT SF-VI .38 SPECIAL, 2" BARRREL, MATTE STAINLESS STEEL. EXTREMELY RARE - MANUFACTURED FOR ONLY A VERY SHORT TIME. Serial Number 5013SV - Confirmed by Colt to be 1998 manufacturing date. This is most unusual as it is generally accepted that SF-VI's were only made from 1....and the DS-II's were manufactured from 1. This firearm came as pictured with the same grips that were being used at the time for the DS-II. It also comes with the new style case that was introduced in 1997. I have never seen another SF-VI in a new style case WITH MATCHING SERIAL NUMBER. Absolutely has to be one of the very last SF-VI's ever made. Next step in the evolution of the Colt Detective Special. THIS FIREARM IS IN PRISTINE CONDITION FOR THE DISCRIMINATING COLLECTOR!!! It's a GEM!!!!! No dents, dings, or scratches. This firearm just sat in the box for the last 8 years. Colt box with MATCHING SERIAL NUMBER and paper work in MINT CONDITION including, Colt Double Action Revolvers Manual and Authorized Repair and Service Stations. For the investor, collector or shooter, this a RARE opportunity to purchase a NEW IN BOX Colt collectible. Buyer to pay $20 shipping and insurance. FFL to FFL only. I have over 300 positive eBay references under rck-58.
NOTE: THIS IS THE EXTREMELY RARE MATTE STAINLESS FINISH (GLASS BEAD FINISH) MANUFACTURED FOR ONLY A VERY SHORT TIME. Most SF-VI's were manufactured in 1 with the regular stainless finish like a Python or Magnum Carry. See 1996 Colt Catalog description below - upper right corner of page. Described as Model #1020, 400 stainless steel with glass bead finish.
