Up for auction is a Colt Colt SF-VI, otherwise known as the Colt Detective Special Two. She is chambered for .38 Special with the highly concealable 2" barrel. This Colt has a serial number of: SV8341. We believe the production date to be ~ 1995. This Colt is ready to travel...small platform, big bite. Every mechanical aspect is perfect on this Small Frame SA/DA stainless steel revolver. This example reflects with pride, the precision engineering Colt is known for throughout the world. The chambers are glassy sharp, the rifling exact and the action is buttery smooth. Forcing cone and recoil shield speak to this being a factory test fired example. Grips are plush black rubber with silver rampant Colt medallions. She has a smooth trigger and a shrouded ejector rod. She'll make a perfect back-up, or back-up to your back-up. For those who leave nothing to chance. A superior example of Colt’s Detective Special production line. We have attached multiple Hi-Definition photographs in various lighting conditions for your review and consideration. She comes as photographed. Enjoy the auction! Colt Detective Special Production Series First Series From 1927 - 1946: Compared to later production models, the first series used a narrower frame, with reduced clearance between the frontstrap of the gripframe and the rear of the trigger guard. Other distinctive features included a shorter ejector-rod with an ungrooved, knurled tip; a checkered hammer spur and cylinder latch, a "half-moon"-shaped front sight, and an overlapping screw and locking pin set-up on the right side of the frame. Grip panels were wooden. A rounded butt on the metal frame became standard in 1933, but pieces with the original square butt (like that of the police positive special) continued to be produced into the 1940's Second Series 1947 - 1972: The ejector-rod was longer and had a groove in its knurled tip; a three-inch-barrel variant was offered, with a yet longer ejector-rod. The cylinder latch was smooth, and the trigger spur serrated. The right side frame screw has no locking pin, and the rear half of the front sight is a serrated ramp. The grip panels were plastic in 1947, but were changed back to wood starting in 1955 (first with a silver-tone colt medallion, and later a gold-tone). An optional hammer shroud was available from the factory to prevent the hammer from catching on clothing Third Series From1973 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, oversize wood gripstocks were introduced that covered the front frame strap. The Third Series featured improvements to the revolver's internal lockwork as well. As with the previous two Series, a few nickel-plated guns were produced, and a 3-inch-barrel variant was again offered. In 1986, facing stagnant sales numbers as well as rising production and labor costs, Colt discontinued production of the Detective Special fourth Series Post 1992: Featured "composite" (rubber), wrap-around grips with a gold medallion. Only a two-inch barrel was offered, in blue or hard chrome finish. The new production run continued only until 1995, when Colt introduced its stainless-steel SF-VI as a replacement for the detective special. Colt SF-VI History Other than the Python, the "D" frame Colt Detective Special and Cobra was the last of the old style action Colt revolvers. Needing a newly designed revolver to stay competitive, Colt designedengineered a new gun that was loosely based on the modern transfer-bar action they pioneered with the Trooper Mark III. This new gun was built on a frame Colt named the "SF" or Small Frame and was named the Colt SF-VI. The reason for the odd name was to prevent confusion with the Detective Special, which was still in the Wholesaler-Dealer pipeline. As soon as the last of the Detective Specials were sold, Colt renamed the gun as the Colt DS-II, or Detective Special Two. The early SF-VI model had probably the lightest double action trigger ever on a revolver. There were a number of design features on the SF guns. The end of the barrel was deeply counter sunk, and the outer muzzle was left squared off. The muzzle edges were so sharp, it was possible to actually get cut, and holsters got damaged quickly by the sharp edges. The SF guns were VERY sturdy, held a full six shots, and were nearly as accurate as the older "D" framed guns. Due to very limited numbers produced, the "SF" guns are becoming quite collectible.
