We are unsure of the exact model however this is only the 3d one we have had. The lst commercially produced sub- compact chambered in 45 ACP (later other cals) Known for both exceptional quality and uniqueness of design. When lst produced in the mid 70's much was written about them which can be found with a quick Google Search. Attached below is a partial reprint from one of many articles about them. These ware an up market gun priced considerably higher than Colts of the same era.
This fine gun is almost completely free of handling marks and is really in collectable condition in our opinion. There is one tiny mark on the slide at an approx 1:00 position
" the first really small and compact 1911-pattern pistol to be produced in significant numbers. Law enforcement fell in love with it immediately due to its diminutive size and quality. It received “star quality” when Don Johnson as Sonny Crockett in Miami Vice was seen carrying one in a leg holster on the show. Far more important than the media exposure was the revolutionary reliability work done inside the pistol. The Detonics introduced the bulged barrel end so that the pistol did not require a bushing. It also incorporated double and triple recoil springs. It was the first production 1911-pattern which was throated and ramped for hollowpoints. The high price and limited market for the pistol doomed the company, but were the Combat Master to be reintroduced today, it would no doubt be a different story. Those fortunate enough to own a Detonics pistol treasure them.
