    Finally...A Pic of My DS

    Finally got around to taking a pic of my '73 model Detective Special. My camera is marginal (and it's a lot better than me!) so I will apologize for the crappy pic (smudges on the frame, etc. are from a silicone cloth). It's not a collector item as it has been well used so I had it reblued by Colt and they also timed it and went through it. Now I'm going to refinish the grips.

    That's one of the finest snubnose revolvers ever made. I had several back in the day but I traded them off thinking they make new ones every day. What a fool I know. Some 00 steelwool and a small can of Tounge Oil from Home Depot will bring them grips/stocks back to new. Probably 4 or 5 coats. Good luck Charlie.
