One of a Kind Detonics Mark VI




My uncle has a Detonics .45 Mark VI Combat Master Professional Model with polished stainless steel with wood grips and 3 stainless clips. It supposedly is one of a kind. The reason for this is that it is misprinted as a Mark IV. It has all the feature that the Mark VI has but is stamped Mark IV. He is the original owner with all the paper work and brochures from 1978 or79. It hasn't been broken in yet. Only shot about 50 rounds through it. He is seeking collectors and expert opinions on the value and how rare this is. If someone has any knowledge on this they can leave there phone number so he can reach you and talk to you about it as he has more knowledge about the gun. Thanks

I would look on gunbroker.com to get the idea for a price and maybe a place to sell it.

Nah - When I first read your post it read to me like you were fishing for buyers. Selling guns isn't allowed on the forum.

It's not the first one I've heard of. And there maybe more. What likely happened is that on the day the engraving was done, the guy doing the work didn't detect the error and probably did it to every Mk VI in the batch that was getting engraved at that time. Hard to say how big of a batch might have been engraved. Sometimes distributors would buy 50 guns at a time; sometimes less. Sometimes there would be a mix of blue and stainless in the sale; which could have led to the error, since the Mk IV was a blue gun. And, it's entirely possible that such an error could have occurred more than once! Lots of possibilities. Ultimately, I guess only God knows.
