    What you have is super nice, indeed. To the right Colt collector I would value your outfit around 3500 or even more. What do ya say, Shooter?

    I doubt he would get anywhere near $3500, with the papers and box, even if it is original. IMHO it has been restored.

    Thanks for the the help. I guess I will have to check out the what it's worth forum to here from the experts. I don't agree with the restored comment that gun hasn't been out of the box since it was new. That's my guess. It was given to to me by a friend of the family who pasted several years ago. He was a WWII marine vet.

    Jim, an eye for an eye is the old testament. Jesus said to turn the other cheek ( if your a Christian that is ) HOWEVER, if he's got a gun or is hurt'in your family shoot um.

    Danny, I am just about to freak out about your opinion of this piece. Thanks for the info I am sure of its original condition. Since I am new to this site I don't who the experts are. But you have my vote Mr. Senior member sir. Now I have to decide if I want to part with the little beauty. I have a whole new respect for it now.

    I think it's directed at my signature

    a few lines from a song i like

    and thats ok i turn the cheek often , been slapped often

    but the Good Book also ( new testiment ) shows that evil must be fought

    as in if you have no sword take your purse ( wallet ) and buy one

    if you have no purse, then sell your clothes , ( go naked if you have to but be armed )

    Welcome to the forum ( sorry i normally start with that , but i've been remiss , sorry )

    cheers
