New Year's Bangity

Colt Detective Special, circa 1978:


It's an auction gun. From the description, I expected something pretty ratty, but it was at a price that I would have willingly paid for a snubbie Model 10, let alone a Colt. Frankly, I was astonished that I won it.

It was dry and stiff, but some fresh oil cured that. There is some freckling on the sides of the hammer and some holster-wear on the front edges of the cylinder and the muzzle. Lockup is solid.

Range report to come.

Sweet! I used to have one just like it but someone else wanted it more. Let me know if you plan on doing an action job on it and I'll pass along some tips.
