    I saw this Colt mfg in 1899 4 1/2" barrel DA 38 and was curious what it might be worth. I know condition is the biggest factor but generally, what price range might it be worth? The rifling is light w/some pitting, finish is brownish blue and locks up "fairly tight." Wood grips in pretty good shape. Any collector value? IMG_1881.JPG

    I have a similar one in worse condition and in .41 caliber. I was told that it's a "New Army and Navy" model. No idea on value for you, sorry.

    Probably one of those guns where the value is honestly, just varied. Much like alot of the surplus European military revolvers, Anywhere from a $300 price to $900 for some.
    For that specific gun, my first instinct is $400. I'd say even $500 is a fair price, but no more. Late 19th century Colt revolvers go for around that range. We got a M1917 Colt for $450 I believe, and I've found the 1877 Thunderer double actions from anywhere $400 to $700.
