I recenty inherited a Model of 1903, .32 cal. It appears to be in excellent condition. I need some help with a couple of things: Where can I get an estimate of its value and where can I get disassembly instructions. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Value is highly dependent on condition and age. The most valuable ones were made during WW2 and issued to officers in the military. They are identified by a UNITED STATES PROPERTY stamp. The regular guns can range anywhere from $200 to $700 depending on condition.

Excellent information and disassembly instructions can be found on Sam Lisker's Colt Autos Website.

BTW your biggest problem is going to be finding spare magazines. I have a 1908 .380 and tried the Triple K magainzes. Total crap-OLA! I then found original Colt magazines at a gunshow, but they were $75. If you buy one look closely at the feed lips to make sure they're not split, which they're prone to doing.
