    Crimson Trace really needs to make a LaserGrip that fits Detective Specials. That would potentially solve a lot og grip and sight issues simultaneously.

    I talked with CT about this idea a dozen years ago or so now. And was told then, "Our business plan does not allow us to pursue development of grips for guns that are no longer in production, we just don't sell enough to recoup R&D."

    I had hoped that with the revival of the Cobra, that this would come to pass, but Colt changed the frame dimensions sufficiently that new and old model grips won't interchange, so even with a CT grip for the new "D-Frame" it wouldn't work.
    I've been killt' in da' streetz so many times, it's a wonder I'm still alive.

    Unfortunately Crimson Trace is probably correct. As much as I would like a LaserGrip for my own Detective Special, the truth is that if it were offered, I would have a really hard time justifying the purchase. I have not carried a revolver in many years, and putting such grips on this gun would not persuade me to carry it instead of a Glock 26 that is easier to hide, easier to shoot well under more conditions, holds a greater number of more powerful cartridges, is faster to reload, etc. Neither my wife nor daughter has much interest in revolvers. I doubt my son's interest in revolvers will be any greater when he is mature enough to begin shooting. As a training aid, a red laser is worthless outdoors in good light, and green would be more expensive and harder to justify.

    Is the difference enough that a little application of Bubba-izing could make a new Cobra grip fit a DS?
    What the hell is an "aluminum falcon"?
