Default 1969 Colt Detective Special

i just acquired this and was curious if the pearl style grips are factory or after market.
Appears to have been rarely shot if ever at all.
thanks!

I'm no expert, but I doubt if those grips are original. The original grips
look more like these:

I think what you have is a D frame long round butt.

Original's should look like this; (I think )

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

The grips on the OP's gun are Jay Scott aftermarket.
The grip frame is the short one. You can see it in the picture.
