rj; does the gun have any British markings or proofs? I doubt that it was a military issue New Service,as the 55,000 approx made for the British Govt. in W.W. I were all 5.5" bbls.You did not give the serial # range,and if it is an early one,with the stepped trigger guard,generally under 21,000 # range,it is worth more. Is the gun .455.or has it been coverted to either .45 Colt or .45 acp? If it is a TARGET model,with the factory original sights,double the $750 (+ or -) figure I am giving withoit seeing the piece or knowing more. Good Luck,and "originality" counts heavy with us lovers of "the big guy"! Bud
