The Colt Detective Special is a 6-shot, carbon steel framed, 2" barreled, double-action revolver, and it's the first example of a class of firearms known as "snub-nose revolvers." Made by Colt's Manufacturing Company, the Detective Special Revolver was intended to be a concealed weapon used by plain-clothes police detectives.The Detective Special was the first short-barreled revolver produced with a modern swing-out frame. It was designed from the outset to be chambered for higher-powered cartridges, such as the .38 Special. The Detective Special uses a slightly smaller frame than the Colt Official Police or Smith & Wesson Model 10 (K-Frame) revolvers.Colt's Detective Special went through several series. This Third Series ran from 1973 to 1986. A new shroud extended down from the barrel, enclosing and protecting the ejector rod, and the front sight was changed to a full ramp. New, oversized wood grip stocks were introduced that covered the front frame strap.Condition: UsedCaliber: .38 SpecialAction: Double ActionCapacity: 6 roundsSights: Fixed OpenBarrel Length: 2"Overall Length: 6.75"Weight: 21 oz.Finish: Nickel-Plated
