Colt 1902 Sporting .38 ACP
Hello all, I was given a Colt 1902 Sporting .38ACP by my Great Aunt. She informed me the gun was her dads and that he was in the CIA. No idea if this gun had anything to do with the CIA though. From my research based on the markings on the side of the gun and on the bottom of the magazine the gun was made in 1902-1903. The thing that puzzles me is that there is not a serial number anywhere on the gun and no sign of it being grinded off. could this be a "lunchbox" gun? Could it be that it was CIA issued and had no serial number? The gun is in good condition. What do you think this gun would be worth? I dont plan on ever selling it and would like to get it cleaned up and restored....is that a bad idea?
