    Went down to Kings GunWorks to pick up my Coke a Cola
    Python and made the mistake of lookin in those durn gun
    cases again.I spotted a 1911A1 that was sitting in the case.
    I asked John who works there what about it,and all he said
    was he could sell it because it was over 50 yrs old.{In Cal
    a gun that's not on the "safety"list can't be sold,with some
    exceptions}.This Colt fit the "over50" part.This gun looked
    brand new!I don't know anymore about it.The price was 795.00 plus all the other malarky.From what I could see there
    wasn't a scratch on it.What do you think ? too high ? Any
    help with my thanks.bg

    A little better-than-fair retail price for a Colt Govt from that time period. I've seen mint examples from the immediate post-war period go over $900.
