S&W 'Detective Special'

When I become president of Colt I will send a couple of guys and drawings up the road to Springfield, Mass. to meet with the S&W people. The Colt people will ask,

"How much will is cost to make 5,000 Detective Specials in accordance with our original Colt drawings and specs? Colt Royal Blue, of course."

Seeng that S&W has the capability to make revolvers, it should not be too difficult for them to reprogram their CAM machines, purchase the necessary materials, etc. to turn out 5,000 Dick Specials.

I think there is a market for 6 shot Colt snubbies.

Or should I resign my position the same day as appointed?

I'm not sure Colt has the capability.

I've toured the S&W factory. If someone has the chance to do so I recommend it.

They have a lot of new CAD-CAM machines. I think they could make just about anything in metal, forging to fine machining, with a few changes in programming code.

I don't think Colt has the CAM machines or processes anywhere near being set up to handle revolvers.

Sad.

I have a two inch 64, the 10 in stainless. Probably a heavier duty gun than the DS. Seems heavier and not as sleek or as good looking as the DS to me.

I am a K frame fan and have 10s in three and four inch barrels, one HB, one skinny or pencil barrel.

A. Yes, you should resign.

B. S&W would have to retool to make Colt revolvers just about as much as Colt would. They are revolvers, but they are not very similar in parts and design. Most everything is reversed from S&W to Colt, from cylinder rotation to the function of the hammer block, for one thing.

Got the top bid (only bid) on one on gunbroker today.
Probably overpaid, but I am happy:

Perhaps S&W could just start making a six round version of their J-frame...
I'd jump.

I don't know if they use CAM machines to do it, but they do make revolvers.....
