Just recently acquired a Colt Detective from a fellow calgunner. It has a bobbed hammer so its DAO. Noticed the pull is long and pretty heavy. I gave Jim Hoag a call and he said not to do any more work on the smaller framed Colts. He said the smaller framed guns need all the spring force it can get to ignite the primer, so not to do any kind of action job or trigger job on it. I trust Mr.Hoag opinion very much, but I have seen that Cylinder and Slide will do a trigger and action job on this particular pistol. Anyone else have some information about these revolvers?
