Colt Detective Special - As New - Unfired  Guns > Pistols > Colt Double Action Revolvers- Modern
Description: Excellent condition in and out.

I believe this piece to be unfired since leaving the Colt Factory in 1965, the original owner in St. Petersburg said he had never fired it and I truly can find no indication to the contrary, a very rare find today in a Colt Detective Special.

This piece has the full grip frame, not the shortened version which came later in 2nd model production. The original walnut checkered grips are perfect and show beautiful dark figured marbling which I was not able to pick-up in the photos and they are exactly perfect / as new with sharp points in the checkering and no flat spots.

There is no bluing loss of the bright polished Colt blue finish anywhere on the piece and only the faintest possible ghost of a turn line can be seen when using a glass. No carbon fouling on cylinder or recoil plate and no shinny wear.

A remarkable snub-nose Colt .38 Special for carry or put it in your collection as an investment. Colt’s just keep getting harder to find with their values rising, fired or not and you just don't see them like this anymore.
