    Give your son or grandson, whoever you meant to post in your #8 post above, a shooter. If the 2nd gen is the only gun he has, he'll shoot it. Give it to him later when he understands the concept of heirloom collectibles.

Also the cylinder base pin and the ejector rod were frozen solid. Sprayed it up pretty heavy with ballistol waited an hour and I was then able to get it apart and properly lubed . Planning on getting a colt letter for it. Past owner had the manual and sales receipt , but no box. Question is, are these very collectible meaning should I seek out a period correct box or just have a nice shooter ? If this is highly collectible I could look around for a used Gen 3 for a shooter. A little advice would be helpful here.

    thanks ,

    I will never understand, "The box craze". And, shoot it.

    I recently traded for a 7 1/2" 2nd Gen 45. It too appeared unfired, and the owner knows he never shot the gun. It had a box, but it was a bit "ragged". After we made the trade he followed me to a target and it was "unfired" no more. His comment was "WOW! I guess I should've shot that one". It was plunking my loads all into one nice tight little spot at 25 yards.

    My point is... keeping these guns unfired means you never know what you're missing.
