I inherited my dad's Colt Jr. .25 with a .22 conversion kit when he passed. I have shot it a couple of times, but I find it too small for my hands (big mitts). I was curious of opinions of sales value, as I am considering selling it. If I sell it, it would be as a package.

The gun shoots great. It has hardly been used. My dad was not an enthusiast and only shot it a handful of times himself.

Any input would be much appreciated.


Here are some photos:













Thanks!

It's a shame that you have to part with it. I found a little Colt Jr. in 22 short was a nice little fun gun. I burned up a lot of 22 short ammo with mine and my son now makes sure it is with him on camping trips, just to kill pine cones.:)

Here's what the Colt Serial Number data base provides for this pistol:

1960
JUNIOR COLT .25 (SHARED SERIALS WITH JUNIOR COLT .22) & (FROM 1970) WITH COLT AUTO .25

1959
JUNIOR COLT .22 (SHARED SERIALS WITH JUNIOR COLT .25)

Use this site to look up the numbers:

Because of the age, and condition, it would be worth over $500, in my opinion. I was offered that for a Colt Auto .25 made in 1970, exact same pistol with the exception it was made in this country and is rolled USA.

Here's how to tell:

Find the threads with collectors for the .25, post up there. These are really hardcore Colt collectors, a better gauge than looking at auctions.
