Have a 22 conversion kit, in a plain brown colt logo box, with the marking "conversion kit" on right side, along with the usual Colt nomenclature. Can't find slide marking in any book. Kit is not numbered. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks
Yes. It is my screw-up. I have nothing but problems between my eyes, my memory, and a TBI. The unit is in a plain, unmarked, brown box except for the colt rampart on the top of the box. It does say Conversion Unit, not "kit". My apologies.
A second unit I have, which is numbered in the U 1300 range, is in the box, complete, and says "Colt Service Model Conversion unit 22-45, ACE,22 long rifle". The box shows damage being 80 years old, but it is complete.
Thanks fo all the help. You have no idea how frustrating dealing with these problems and trying to get things straight.
The conversion unit in the U1300 range should be the more valuable one. If it is in good to excellent condition and is in the correct box, I see those selling quite high. Maybe in the $2000+ range. I am no expert on these, so I hope other, more informed members will chime in.
The more common unit in the brown box is more in the $600 range in my area.
If you cannot post pictures, please describe the box style in detail, describe the slide top for rib or no rib, describe the rear sight style (Coltmaster, "flat" Accro, Accro) and look for a date code on any instruction sheet. With some or all of that information, someone here might be able to narrow down the vintage of your Conversion Unit.
This is the one my brother had on his watch list, and he told me this am the price and condition.
We have two Units, mine is an early post War probably early 50's, his is a later one with the Accro sight. No boxes but we didn't pay top dollar for ours.
