    I have a Colt M1911A1. It was owned by my dad, which was owned by his mom's dad before that. The serial # is No 922029 meaning it is a Colt and not an ithaca or springfield. I was wondering about the value of the gun. Sorry about the quality, I had to take a picture using my iphone.

    I would take off the trigger shoe; I hope it hasn't marked up the trigger too much.

    I am not too sure when the trigger shoe was added. From looking at it, it appears that there isnt any damage to the trigger.

    I would estimate its value at around $1400, but this could vary by hundreds of dollars depending on the mind set of the buyer and seller.

    Thanks for the input everyone. I am not looking to sell the gun, just curious about its value. This colt is by far my favorite out of the collection. My father actually told me this gun was used by his grandfather to shoot snakes and he kept it in his fishing kit. The gun is incredible shape for the usage throughout the years as my father believed that as a gun, it was meant to be shot. My dad was actually supposed to receive a set of matching colt .45's that were in a display case that he believes neither one had ever been fired. Unfortunately, there was a dispute after his grandfather died and his cousin ended receiving the guns wrongfully and he believes that they were sold, which he wasnt too happy about. Also in the collection is a .357 Colt trooper, .357 S&W, and a Beretta 84FS, which is actually my favorite gun to fire.
