Colt Detective Special Timing

I never paid much attention to Colt's D-frames when they were available, but now I'm thinking I have to have one - a Detective special (preferably shrouded, three-inch), or possibly a Cobra or an Agent. The trouble is I recall reading one place 30 years ago that the Colt was more likely to go out of time than a Smith.

So, three questions:

1. How can I tell if it's not timed properly?

2. How common is out of timing, as in "All of them need timing occasionally," to "One in a thousand need some work?"

3. Is a timing issue something most gunsmiths can handle, or does this require a specialist or the factory?

Thanks for your thoughts.
