Like all vintage guns, it depends upon the individual gun, how original it is, and its condition. These are clones of that period Colt M1911A1's. Their price has seen an uptick in recent years. They used to be common at or under $500. Now a mismatched serial number gun in decent condition under $500 is a steal. I haven't looked that listing up yet, but from the photo, it looks like the successful bidder stole that one.Are these good?
