The trigger pull is definitely different on a Colt vs. a S&W, it’s definitely more stacky, you can feel the DA pull tighten up as you pull, so I like the more consistent action of the K- and L-Frame better. My Colt is very nice for what I paid for it. Mechanically, it’s solid, the bore looks great, but you can tell it was carried extensively, the finish is worn where one would expect it to be if a revolver is carried daily. They really DO lock up like a bank vault, I quite like that about them. Police Positive Special, 4″ barrel, manufactured in 1920, .38 Spl. I will say this, the trigger pull is MUCH better than the J-frame, plus you have 6 rounds vs. 5 of the J-frame. So I now understand why some people are militant about having a Colt Detective Special over a J-frame S&W for their carry piece. I also now know to be on the lookout for a Detective Special. But first, I need a rifle and shotgun as a companion to the PPS. Thinking a Winchester Model 12 and a pre-64 Model 94 or Savage 99 in .250-3000 or .300 Savage.
