Colt Detective Special from 1933. Bought it because it looked like the one Joe Friday carried. Paid $100 for it, offered $350, sold.


Missed the old Dick special so bought this one from a Calguns member, early 90s vintage. The grips look like it will be more comfortable to shoot than Joe Friday's version!

I must say, I prefer the look of the new one more, but that old one has the classic look of an old, well-used handgun.

I missed out on a nickel Detective, then I spent my money on a different gun and when another pops up, I'm broke.

The old and the new in one picture. This one looks to be unfired.
