Beautiful Colt.

Someone is eventually going to win this factory engraved and lettered Colt. I've seen it as high as $1,700.00 dollars and still the reserve not met. I've bid on it a few times and have given up.

Blue Book value (2013) NIB is $1800.00 The buy now price is ridiculous

I've gone up close to that Fingers and he won't budge. Interesting that it looks to be a 'C' Series Second Generation Colt from the box and inners, purchased in 1981 and well into the 'F' Series.

They were gong nutso over a Third Generation Paterson a few weeks back. I dropped out at $1,000.00 and they were still going at it. I think it sold for a little under $1,600.00.

He had two pythons for sale for $14,500 buy it now for the pair. Bidding stopped at $2600. I have a firm belief that in auctions things, all things, sell for what they are actually worth in the current market.

This is my favorite...

Many of the engraved models were done in the 80s from C series stocks that had been set aside. SN of this one puts it at the tail end of the C series models.

I agree, a very beautiful Colt. But not at those prices, especially the BuyNow price!
