1993 COLT DETECTIVE SPECIAL, 6-shot, .38 Special revolver with a 2″ barrel and an original factory blued finish. In the early 1900’s Colt developed a small frame revolver known as the Police Positive Special. This was one of Colt’s most popular designs and was used for more versions and models than any other Colt double action revolver. The Police Positive Special action was made almost unchanged from 1907 to 1995. In 1927 Colt decided to offer the Police Positive Special with a 2-inch barrel.  Colt decided that this new version should have its own name and in a stroke of genius, the gun was named the Colt Detective Special. For the next 50 years that was exactly what it was: the preferred revolver for police detectives, undercover officers, and off duty policemen.  Additional information and details regarding this firearm coming soon!
