    I have a 1905 Colt SAA .45 Colt that has been refinished. I'm trying to find out a round about value on one and don't even know where to start. I have looked on gunbroker but can't find any that have been refinished for sure. Here are some pictures.

    In this picture you can make out that the top half of the colt logo has been buffed almost completely out.

    It's typical of a lot of old refinished Colt SAA's in that it is way overpolished and the grip frame halves were removed and the parts polished seperately. The edges are badly rolled-over and the screw holes dished out. It is such a crying shame that so many old guns have been treated this way. Making it a pure shooter-grade sixgun with no collector value (unless it belonged to someone infamous) and probably $800-$1200.

    Regardless, I suspect a lot of people would be interesting in that gun. There is a demand for these even in that condition.
