    I have a guy that I work with that inhereted a Colt Detective handgun. He asked me if I could find out any info on it and of course I thought of the site. Anyway, the only info I have is the serial number. It is H44129 s. He is looking for any info he can get and knowing how some of you know the site to look up serial #s on I was hoping someone could help him.

    When made, value, etc. etc.? Thanks

    If you call up Colt and give them the serial number they can tell what year it was made.

    Call Colt.
    I have quit giving the Colt and Smith info out.
    Too many people claim to know better.
    :supergrin:


    Get a Blue Book of guns for value and condition.

    Made in 1974. Value depends on condition, which requires a visual reference...
