    donniedee, obviously you liked it enough to pay that, therefore you got a "deal". Whatever I, or other people might be willing to pay for that particular gun is irrelevant. It does have an interesting look to it. Enjoy

    Grips alone are probably worth $600.00? or more

    donniedee, welcome to Colt Forum, and thanks for sharing photos of your old warhorse.

    You got an OUTSTANDING deal on that old Colt, IMHO.

    I think the cool, scarce, carved, vintage ivory stocks (with an unusual design, a buffalo on each side instead of a steer on only one side) would be worth the entire $1,000 which you spent for the gun with the stocks attached.

    The adjustable rear sight almost certainly is not original to the pistol.

    "The adjustable rear sight almost certainly is not original to the pistol."

    The rear sight is a LPA adjustable. I put the same rear sight on my Norinco M1911-A1. They work well.

    Not to nitpick, but I would call the carving, "bulls" or (toro from the ring, maybe Spanish or Mexican). This may be a clue to the origin of the grips.
    Regards.
