    I just picked up a Colt Detective Special according to the serial number it was produced in 1965 it is in very good shape.The thing that bothers me is it rattles when I shake it (unloaded of course) is this common for an older Colt?

    The answer to your question depends on what you call a "rattle".

    If you are referring to a slight "ticking" sound, this is likely the internal firing pin block and completely normal.

    If on the other hand, there is movement in the cylinder or trigger/hammer group, this is not normal and indicates a significant problem.

    Hope this vague answer is helpful.
