    The big GB seller out of Texas...blanking on the name at the moment...sold other non-master engraved guns out of that series last summer for much higher prices. Exact same configuration, engraved with two sets of grips, just not master engraved.

    Very nice looking guns but other sellers were selling equal guns around the price you paid. I never could figure out why those guys got such high prices. I know there were some comments on a thread on here about it at the time.

    Thanks for sharing that insight! Thank you everyone who responded actually. You really put my mind at ease and I feel very good about this purchase... my wife on the other hand.

    Since it letters as Kamyk engraved, and hopefully the letter reflects the Brent/CustomShop association, you got it VERY right indeed! Had I been bidding, it would have gone for more...at least a little! Congrats!
    Haha! I made that mistake once before, posting questions about a gun I was interested in/bidding on with a link to the auction. Never again, I'd get a couple more people bidding on it and end up paying a few hundred to a thousand dollars more or not winning the auction.

    I think you should contact Brent T. It seems he owned the gun and may provide you with some history.

    Looks like a good, fair deal on both sides. You're happy and he probably is, too. Congratulations.

    You will never regret this purchase. Years from now it will still please you every time you look at it, and know it is a special Colt with a great story behind it. I can tell you that the only purchase I regret is the one that I didn't step up for and lost it. An old Winchester 73 in great shape signed by Jimmy Stewart. Still haunts me.

    The old saying generally applies, no matter the price. "You didn't pay too much, you just bought too soon." In the case of -one of a kind Colts- it is usually a case of *buy it now* or never get another chance, as the don't change ownership very often in one's life time.

    On this one, signed, master lever, B+ engraving, the price was a steal if you compared it to a current replacement. Mr. Kamyk has been engraving for Colt a long time. And his efforts keep increasing in value.

    That is an absolutely beautiful revolver. I can certainly understand why you wanted it - who wouldn't! Thanks for sharing it with us.
