    Another vote for Tip Burns as a good guy and great gunsmith. I met him when he and Donna lived down in South Houston and even drove up to Canyon Lake a few times to do business. Last I heard he was working for Blaser.

    As for the Colt, there are lots of variables. In general, I would say $1,800-$2,800 to an interested buyer. I've got a couple and would suggest you opt for a letter.

    We're not talking about the same gun, then - the gun in the OP's post is heavily pitted, and has obviously been stripped - both of the rust AND the remaining finish. So your $25k "appraisal" has zero application to the gun at hand......

    Nope, yer not talking about the same gun.
    JCs post refers to a different gun. His "referenced above" comment refers to the once fired specimen in his post, not the one in the OP. I could be wrong in my interpretation.

    And that was where the confusion started....we were talking about one gun, but his post (being hard to decipher) had me (and obviously several others) thinking he was trying to opine a $25k potential value on the gun in question. I just didn't want the OP to be thinking that number and have them offer him the gun at a "bargain" price of $10k, and him jump on it.....lol

    "hard to decipher" is being pretty generous of you.
    I do love a challenge though.

    morning, I have noticed that some of the supporters
    on this site jump on new members for dumbness reasons.
    I tell stories from my past that I encountered.
    the long colt 45 story is printed under the colt.
    Tip and I looked up the serial #. the colt is in
    very good condition. that is what the book
    quoted. I am not saying the long colt is worth
    $25,000. that is what the colt book quoted.
    I told u my profession. the typing is MY style.
    if u do not like my printing DON'T READ MY POSTINGS.

    I did not say this colt is worth the monies amount. I was referring
    a different colt and the serial # in the colt book.

    Go back and read what I posted - or don't, at this point I frankly don't care. And you're right - there are some posters I simply need to ignore.

    Looks to me to be in pretty good shape for its age. You are not going to find more than a handful of revolvers that age that have no corrosion.

    I have seen many much worse that were not anywhere nearly that old.
