    Condition issues like blueing loss near muzzle and speckling on cylinder. Did I way overpay at $450? Locks up tight and shoots good.

    With a colt hammer shroud as well. I hope that’s not too much. I like it.

    Considering you will pay 399 for some plastic junk auto loader, looks like you did OK. Just remember, you never pay too much for a gun but the more you pay, the longer it takes to come out from under it. With a Colt, who cares as it is a lifetime contract.

    Absolutely not , you stole it in my opinion . It's worth that without the shroud which itself is worth a chunk to those who like them . Great deal .

    It’s hard to tell if colt will make another alloy or light frame 38 or not. If not, your gun is worth more than that and will only appreciate. It’s still a deal, maybe the seller didn’t know it’s eady to change to longer stocks. I carry 2 agents( with plus P but practice with standard) in my cycle of CC guns. One is a very early agent with its unique grip frame and little options for stocks. The other is the Matt finish agent with long cobra stocks. You have a desirable gun for carry. If the short stocks are too short for you, you have many options to fit your needs. A friend of mine bought the new night cobra with a dark finish, he likes the gun but then held mine and wished his was as light as mine. I shoot about 1K rounds of 38 wadcutters with 3 grains of bullseye per year through several colt 38/357 revolvers which produce nice sharp holes in the B27 target at 7 yards.

    Everyone i I know including myself, enjoys the gun more with longer stocks.

    You did just fine. My rule of thumb is any Colt DA revolver in good mechanical condition is worth $400 unless it's really roached finish-wise. You did much better than that. The hammer shroud is worth about $100 by itself and if installed at the factory a good bit more than that.

    Excellent purchase on a fine revolver.

    Yelp, No question, I'd bought it too.
