    Hi,

    First a little discription from me because i'm new here.
    I'm Mark, 22 years old, from The Netherlands.
    For the last 6 years i'm shooting several guns.

    Since 2008 i am the lucky owner of a CZ 75 9mm and a Colt Woodsman Match Target .22LR

    I already sorted some things out.
    It's a 3rd generation from 1965 and in a good condition.

    I have no idea what the value of this Colt is.
    So i hope you can help me to give me an idea !

    Thanking you in advance,

    Mark

    Hi Mark, and Welcome!
    That is a very collectable little Colt you have there. I won't hazard a guess as to worth because the true experts will pick up your post soon enough and give you a better price range.

    markio first welcome to the forum! Check out this site: http://www.colt22.com/faq.html It will give you some information, maybe all you need. My Woodsman Match Target was manufactured in 53, it no longer has the original grips, as they fell apart. I do believe that yours is a third series. Mine, a second series has been valued at around $600 due to it's condition. That just don't make it very collectable! Besides, it was dad's gun, and I would never part with it anyway.

    thanks. on early 1 and 2nd issue guns, they had an accessory where you could adjust the grip angle with palm spacers. seems by the 3rd issue, they dropped it. youre good.

    You might want to browse around http://www.coltforum.com/forums/index.php , or simply ask over there what they think it is worth. It's a lot more than $600, but I am not current on Colt prices. Could easily be $1000. ??
