Time for another picture thread. This time, let's see some old Colts, ones made before 1950. Starting off is a 1927-vintage .45 Government Model:
It wouldn't surprise me. I paid $1100 for it about five years ago, and at the time a nice pre-war National Match was about $4000. Now the same National Match would be over $10,000. I'm still kicking myself for not buying the one I found for sale for $4000 a few years ago. At the time I couldn't justify blowing dough that much on a single firearm, but the prices of early Colts has just gone crazy in the past couple of years.SKSFreak said:How much would one have to pay to get a piece like that, $3000? $4000, or more.
I think it would be safe to say, that your Colt could be refinished without killing its exisiting value.Jaguar said:Colt 1917 commercial
Unfortunately, the original owner sanded some of the surface rust:scratch:
