Love old 38's, and a local pawn has a gorgeous 1955 Colt Detective Special. Bluing is about 80 % from wear due to carry. Build quality is perfect, being a Colt. The stocks are aftermarket plastic made to look like the original checkered walnut. A coat of Testors DulCote to dull the shine and they'd be almost perfect. Asking price is $600. A bit much, but I loved holding that old gem.
