Re: Colt MKIV Gov't Model 45 ACP Series 70 Polished & satin Nickle-Minty
Welcome to the forum LBlack14. You've got a really nice piece there, very shiney. Series 70 is desireable, Nickel plate is not everyone's "cup of tee" but adds a bit of value to those who like that look. From my experience working with dealer's and gunshops - I'd roughly estimate that your piece should have a RETAIL value between $900 and $1000 +/- $100 depending upon the market in your area. NIB value is between $1200 and $1300 - so if you have the box and original papers - you can add $50 - $75, since your piece has been fired. A Dealer will offer you $700 or less in this market. I hope this helps you out - very nice looking gun - almost too nice to shoot, LOL.
