My dad (age 85) bought one in need of repair at a yard sale. Handed to me to make functional again. This one was made in 1901. I have had a good deal of luck but still have a couple of questions.
1) The forend is definitely not original... but it works. I am finding originals RARE. I think...
I have aColt .38 serial number is 150427. It has patent date 1871 74 and 75.
It was my Dad's and Im trying to find out it's value. It's in great condition according to a local gunsmith. No rust the screws are good. Has some blue color to it. Just having a hard time finding out what the value is..
