$700 would be a really good deal (I'd buy it). $800-900 probably fair (and can be rebuilt into a carry gun or casual blaster). $1000 probably too high -- unless it puts everything into the 10-ring at 50 yards.

If it was set up as a wadcutter gun (lighter than 4-pound trigger), you could always re-do the trigger works or gut the fire control system and replace with new.

The front strap and mainspring housing stippling is functional but gives it a cosmetic and collector hit.

I think it looks like a nice gun and agree probably from the 50s through 60s, maybe early-70s.

Pitchers of feed ramp and if throated for wadcutters and hollow points?

(A little jelly -- and nosey -- how many Benjamins did it set you back?)

Congrats! You have a Colt. Shoot it, enjoy it! If you don't like it, it can be re-built to carry or * gasp! * carry optic.

If the price was right I'd have bought it, but I have a thing for stuff like that. I've got a '48 King's build great gun, love the rollmarks. Looking forward to a range report.

Thanks so much, I may look into seeing what it would take/cost to “fix” the front strap stippling.

I'd leave the stippling, whoever did it put a lot of time and effort into it and I'm sure it's functional. Plus, I don't know that I've ever seen stippling with a border like that, I'm sure it's a clue to who did the work on the gun.

In fact, the more I look at the pics, if it was mine I'd detail strip it, give it a good scrubbing, put fresh springs in it, and maybe give it a light going over with Flitz to restore some of the finish, then just run it the way it is. Old skool kool rules!!

Ohh, yeah, nice score. Not too many of these old Colts left. I sold an unmolested 1947 Government 38 Super not long ago. Nice pistolas. You done good, MedicGunGuy!!! Keep the run going, and leave it as it is!!!
