    I just purchased this gun and discovered it is a colt detective clone. Does anyone know if colt grips are compatible. Also does anyone have any first hand experience firing the gun?

    I have one and quite like it. Mine was dead accurate out of the box with a nice double action trigger pull that makes it easy to shoot. It won't win any beauty contests, but it has been very reliable and is my ccw in the winter months. I replaced the horrible wood grips with a Pachmayr Gripper grip. Look for the one that says it is for the Colt Detective special - short square butt "D" frame. From the research that I did, this is one of the only aftermarket grips that fits this gun correctly.

    I have one and I am happy with it, too. It has proven reliable. I haven't scrutinized its accuracy, though.

    It has a nice trigger pull and smooth function. I must say, the action was a bit rough right out of the box, but a few dozen trigger pulls with snap caps and a nice application of oil on the internals resulted in a slick shooter.

    It may look like a Colt DS, but is far from being a true clone.

    ColtPythonElite, You stated that it is far from a true clone. Could you expound on that a little bit? I am guessing that you are referring to build quality and materials. I am curious if there are any design changes.

    Colt "D" frames use flat mainsprings; M200 and M206 use coil springs. Fit and finish not as good as a Colt.

    These Armscor/Bersa revolvers just externally resemble a Colt Detective Special or Diamondback.

    Internally they're totally different, and are more like a Ruger or Dan Wesson.
    They're many rumors that Armscor copied the Colt "D" frame guns, or bought the rights to them, or bought Colt's tooling.
    None of that is true. They just copied the exterior look.
    No parts will interchange and neither will grips, unless they've recently made a change to the frame.

    I put these a BIG step or more below a Taurus in quality.

    I don't know about the quality of these pistols, since i just bought mine today. Nice DA rigger pull, felt as good as a colt I tried at the shop today. Very little cylinder slop, parkerized, which I really like. And 199.00. If this little revolver is as well put together as my Rock Island Armory 1911, I will have a great pistol at a fantastic price. And it will be on par quality wise with Taurus or most any other manufacturer out there.

    But let's see how it shoots first....

    And these grips have to go... Pachmayr will be hearing from me.
