Need help ID'ing Colt Detective Special

I'm trying to get information on a Gen 2 Detective Special I've come accross. I've never seen one like this and have searched and can't find anything on it. The cylinder latch is on the right side of the frame and the cylinder swings out to the right.

Please email me if you know anything about this gun.

Looks to me like a reversed image

As above, the photo was simply reversed.

This is not uncommon, and if you can get a better quality picture you'd see the stampings on the barrel and the word Colt on the grip medallions are reversed.

Yup, reversed image... The pony facing the wrong way was the tip off for me.

Reversed picture

I guess if it's a print from a negative. I don't know if it's possible with digital photos. I'll request some better pictures and see what I get back.

Thanks,

If it's true you would really have something. Colt never made them that way!Like others have said, it's a reverse image.
