  10. .22-Rimfire Forum
    I am about to purchase my first .22, and was hoping to get some advice from those out there who have much more experience with .22's and firearm training than me. I currently own a 9mm, but as ammo is so expensive, I was hoping to purchase a cheaper gun that would make both a good trainer for...

    Hey all. It’s been awhile since I was on the forum but I’m facing a bit of a dilemma. I’m in the market for a new .22lr plinking gun but I’m stuck making the final decision. I’m down to two contenders as of right now. My wife has a Walther/Colt Gold Cup Trophy which is an amazing 1911 styled...

He served around 10 years and brought this pistol home with him. It has been sitting under a dresser for the last 25...

    Similarly to the shotgun information request posted earlier, the family inherited this Colt revolver. Any one has any idea of possible age and price?
  16. The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    Unlike most of my father's guns that I know he used, he obviously didn't seem to preserve this pistol cosmetically. Despite it's neglected appearance, I know he used this gun A LOT over the years, and it was his "carry" gun whenever he felt the need to have one. While I personally have never...

    I don't know a lot about this gun - I recall seeing it, but never firing it. There's obvious discoloration (I'm calling it "tarnish"; perhaps that's not the proper term) on the entire frame. I want to think that's indicative of this being an antique of sorts... but my gut says it's more...

    I have a Colt .44/40 SAA shipped in 1886. It is in pretty good shape considering its age. I am hoping that I can get an idea of its what it is worth, the best place to sell it and what I should sell it for. Photos attached.
