    memory is fuzzy & pictures would help greatly, Bill

    there were 3 series of the BP Traditions line made by colt
    packaged in kinda fancy heavy black cardboard boxes:
    black back strap, silver back strap & the Signature series:silver & signed

    mine was 2nd series and though it did appreciate, the 3rd series [unfired] commands the most money. though today aint like a year ago, price wise.
    i'm thinking mine was from 1976 and sold ~8 years ago for $450 or 500.

    Thanks Claude, Your use of Traditions confused me a bit as there is a company in the area named Traditions that maked reproduction firearms. It indeed a black box but the legend is The authentic Colt BLACKPOWER series. No mention of Traditions. I'm guessing it has been fired as the cylinder appears to have some cycling wear but it is in excellant condition.
    See pics. Is this the same firearm you were thinking of?Bill W

    that's the one like i remember--right down to the plastic info/inside cover. i dont remember a zip strip; i think yours was put on to prevent any more 'handling' marks like the turn mark on the cylinder. perhaps still not been fired, just handled. where in CT are you? have you brought it by NGX or anyplace else for a value?

    good pic's Bill
    what upload service do you use?
