    I guess when you say "collector value" you are referring to only those who collect "safe queens." I see the collector's marketplace as a lot bigger than just that one group of "pristine condition"...

    Your later pistols is equipped with a magazine safety disconnector which is activated by the plunger at the end of your guide rod. It's an improvement that was invented by Colt employee George...

    They do make guns like these today - the big difference is that they make them with pot metal and cast aluminum - two types of metal not available in firearms manufacture until well after WWII. ...

    comma, I wouldn't worry to much about the money on this deal. Most of us here have had similar experiences at one time or another. Consider it a not very expensive lesson in gun collecting. Just...

    Yeah, I don't get how people always correct minutia, a 1911 is corrected to "1911A1" or "Government Model". The only person who cares is the corrector. The rest of us are ok with shorthand. And in...

    No fear, no worries; you are in the right spot and have the right attitude about things. In fact you coudn't have turned up a better place for all things Colt. You do need more guns, though.
