    Isn't it amazing how much better a gun looks after it's been cleaned, oiled, and taken care of?

    Even ones that are in remarkable condition like yours look a little dry and tired until they get some TLC and they seem to just come back to life.

    I hope we look half as good when we are 90 years old.

    Amen to that, Wonder the current market price of these.

    Typically $3-500 in good to very good condition. Add more for excellent. Less for fair condition. Some variants are less common and command slight premium. Some with original box can be over $1,000.

    Mine, as shown above in very good condition and without accessories, was bought in spring of 2018 for $375.

    I think these 1908 vest pocket 25 acp Model N's are currently undervalued. Every Colt collector should have one in the stable IMHO. Great acquisition for the price!
