    Depends on how proud of it you are. I've seen them for 350 to 650...

    Here in NY ,$450 to $500 for one in really nice shape would not be out of line.

    Don't know, but I'd probably buy it sight unseen for $350.

    It is worth about $350, but due to the fact that it is out of production, prices have been higher

    I recently picked up a blued model with 3 mags, box, etc. for $395 and am very pleased.

    Are these guns reliable? Durable?

    The reliability is good for most examples, I've only heard of a few owners with any problems. Durability is questionable because of the Aluminum alloy frame. It was designed to be carried quite often, but shot only occasionally. I bought a Mustang (all steel) to use as my practice gun to prolong the life of my Mustang PocketLite.

    I wouldn't sell mine for $600.00...

    It great! Perfect reliability and I've installed ivory/polymer grips, a Wolff one-piece 12lb recoil spring, and a SM&A titanium recoil rod. I either carry it in a Galco hip pouch or a shark skin Ron Graham "Vampire" belt holster. Vampires have a little safety strap that snaps. He also put my initials on it. :)

    The alloy frame will hold up just fine. These aren't the type of guns you're likely to ever put 10,000+ rounds through anyway. You'll probably give out before the frame does. Their durability is typical of Colts; the slide and frame will last but small parts are prone to breakage (guide rod, extractor, small pins).
