The Scoremaster was the full sized evolution of the better known Combat Master, which was a pioneer gun. Detonics was a pioneer with regard to the stainless 45 auto market. The AMT hardballer gave it the old college try, but those guns routinely seized due to galling from stainless against stainless friction.
Detonics succeeded in finding the right mix alloys and heat treatment that mitigated against the galling phenomenon. The Scoremaster grew out of all the pioneering work that was accomplished with the Combat Master. The Servicemaster would later follow. Unfortunately, the company went bankrupt before the patents expired and many in the industry shamelessly looted the Detonics patents, knowing full well the company was too crippled to sue them. Contrary to popular belief, most Scoremasters were shipped with one barrel and a few very very rare versions (like this) were shipped with two barrels. The two barreled versions were called Janus Scoremasters. Janus was a Greek God with two heads. This is an atypical gun in my collection —I just don’t own any other production guns.
My 1911’s are all 1 of 1…the way god intended. This gun, however, is interesting to me because Scoremasters of any kind are really rare to find. You just don’t see that many of them. The Janus versions are rare as hen’s teeth. This one in particular is even more special because it actually has an IMFDB credit. It is the actual gun used in Terminator 2 Judgement Day (1991) where Sarah Connor rocked it like a boss. What’s is like? It’s like a 1983 Chevy Suburban — certainly not refined but built like a Sherman tank.
