Re: Colt 1911 value?
Colts have soared in value in the past few years since Colt supposedly quit making guns for the civilian market. They still make them, they are just more expensive and harder to find.
Check *********.com or one of the other sites to see what they've been selling for. I think you'll be surprised. If yours is mint and you have the box and papers, you are probably looking at $800 +, maybe more.
