Our Assessment: The Detective Special is considered the first modern snub nose revolver. Originally made in 1926, it was basically a Police Positive Special with a 2” barrel. Many people prefer this model snubbie to the S&W Chiefs Special because it has a six shot capacity. Colt states in their copyright 1993 safety and instruction manual that steel frame Detective Specials are suitable for using .38 +P ammunition whether or not they are in current production. This particular revolver is in excellent condition. This is the one you have been looking for, to go with your new concealed carry permit.
