I'm usually a Smith & Wesson guy, so I have next to no clue when this particular Colt DS was made.

It's a Third Issue, I assume, since it has a shrouded ejector rod. SN is F415xx. It has the old style DS Colt medallion grip panels on it, not the later chunky grips.

Any Colt experts have a clue as to the approximate year of manufacture?

Around 1974 ... I think.

1974 Seems right but the serial numbers changed that year.
