Hey All... Been a while

Postby bitsman » Wed Aug 08, 2018 5:25 pm

Have not visited for some time.. Hoping to be more regular now... Had to liquidate a good deal of my collection... Medical bills and such... Trying to rebuild at this point.. Anyways... Just thought Id say hello again... did buy a few new ones.. Pretty good deals... Actually finally got my 1911... Anyone know anything about OLD.. REALLY REALLY OLD colt revolvers?... Hope everyone has been well...

Good to see you back here. :D
Can't help with the revolvers, though.

Good to see you back, sorry to hear about the reasons behind the liquidation. What's the story on the Colt?

It's a Colt m1877 in 38 Colt black powder round... According to Colt it was made in 1887... For being 130+ years old it's in not too had shape. Was called the Lightening.. pretty much a wall hanger at this point I think. Convo piece... Its an old Colt... that alone gives it some minimal value ... Based on what I have been able to figure out it might be worth $200-$250..maybe slightly more to the right collector. Someone waived $225 under my nose I'd probably take it. Neat little piece of history I think. On

Yeah... Time to start the rebuilding process... Local pawn has a pretty nice chrome Lorcin 22 I have been eyeing. Not willing to deal on it yet...
