I just acquired a 1903 Colt 32 rimless smokeless, pocket. type I Sn 36**

It looks to be in really good shape, and original. Very little of the blueing is worn off from being in a bank bag for a long while. It has been fired, but not known how much. I got a partial box of old Peters ammo with it. ????

Anyone have any idea what this gun might be worth?

I would include a picture of it, but do't have my camera here at the station. Pic will follow.

Value can be anywhere from $200 for a rough one, to $500+ for like new condition. It all depends on % of blueing & finish.

They are nice shooters and carry guns if not in high-quality collector condition.

I think the .32 auto is often under-rated as a self defense cartridge. I've carried one of these for years, and felt very safe.

Enjoy your new acquisition.

Well this one is in really good shape. If you go by the percentage of bluing that isn't off it's at least 95% I'm not exactly how that is judged. I know it is original blueing. I may take it to be appraised.

I'll take some pics of it and try and post them tomorrow.

I bet it would make a good carry gun.

And what happened with the multipal posts?? lol

Value depends by location of course like everything. I picked up a couple of 90% guns of that model last year in CA for about $400 each, both perfect mechanically and great shooters just had some blue worn off. Sold one and thinking of having the second re-done in Robar for fun. On the other hand there is a local dealer who has one, or did last week, new in box and supposedly unfired for $800.

I can't speak as to how they are as self defense weapons being that this is CA but I wouldn't want to get shot by a .32 either, they are fun & reliable shooters. Enjoy
