    I am curious if anybody knows how many Colt Commanders were produced 1955? I picked up a well used one from a pawn shop and before I purchased it I googled around but couldn't find much info on the prices for Commanders from the 1950's.

    About 2000.

    Goggle = Google ?

    Only 2000, I guess that's why I couldn't find any for sale to get a figure on what I should have paid. Its rather worn looking, but I am happy with it anyway.

    BTW blame my spelling checker for the Goggle vs. Google error!

    Unless very early serial number it wouldn't matter which year it was produced as it relates to value.

    Thanks for the info, I wasn't looking for a collectors item. I wanted a 1911 style pistol to play with and preferred a Colt, but Colt prices were a little high compared to other brands. I stumbled upon this Commander and it was rather nasty looking, but the price seemed right and I didn't really know if it was fairly priced. I ran the SN# through the Colt lookup and found out it was a 1955 model an thought it may have been a little older than what I was looking for. We settled on a price and home it went. Pawn shops are mixed bag for pricing.

    If you look at Clawson's book, during 1954 32200-LW to 36500-LW were produced. During 1955 Colt made 35300-LW to 37300-LW and during 1956 they made 37200-LW to 38450-LW.
