This little honey is from our pal Jason at vintagegunleathertoday.com
You may recall this as the ankle rod for Sonny Crockett on Miami vice. The little Detontics has the novel idea of the rear sight being moved forward so the thumb could sweep back during the draw and cock the hammer. A dumb idea in theory and in practice. All 1911s should be carried in the condition one, cocked and locked at all times. However, it does not hurt the cool factor of the gun one iota.
I did a nifty mini-history of Detonics for Handgun Radio awhile back. I should probably re-post the show notes over here with updated links and proper formatting.
you should be able to post by now Dan, has Maya not emailed you the invite and log info for this site yet?
I haven’t seen it yet. Maybe it is in my SPAM folder?
I Will email you her email address, send her an email and remind her to sign you up
