My father is entertaining the though of selling his Colt .
Hes had it for years , It was nickel plated by a previous owner ?
Thick pearl grips, and the case . Any idea on value ?

Probably a factory gun, $1000.00-1100.00, maybe a bitmore. Is it unfired?

The sights wouldn't be nickel if Colt did it, would they?

+1, with the box that comes with it along with the grips, it probably was a "special run".
Colt used to do tons of them beginning in the 60s. They still do make "special runs" like the WW1 reissue but nothing like they used to do. There are tons of runs out there from SAA .22s to ARs, and prices are all over the map.

Yea, he was to it was un-fired , I havnt really looked at it to see if that seemed true .

Maybe $900-1000.  

I'd really have to see more pics outside of the case.

I'm seriously doubting that is a factory case.

Colt's charges $100.00+ for a letter that states how a gun left the factory.  

If those are real MOP grips and the pistol came with them from Colt's in that box with the nickle finish...then you really have something very, very special.  

Not that it is not now...but when you have verified history you have something that collectors pay for.  You may even be able to find out who ordered itHTH,www.coltsmfg.com/

Mag cutout I would imagine.

No...look to the left...there is what appears to be a machinist's parallell bar ( steel  rectangle with holes in it ) sitting in the left side of the case ( running up and down ) ....wonder what the significance is.

Was the owner a machinist??

Yeah, I was just repeating what you said as those holes are VERY common in Colt cases that came with special runs.

OK. I thought maybe I was being clear.
