Gunshow colt 2G 1st Dragoon. $450; no box, but unfired, no mars or marks? Good, bad, so so price? So few of most of the 2G made, yet prices have stayed relativly low. Anyone sense they are creeping upwards?

Current blue book prices--deduct $75 to $100 for no box

100% --- $775
98% -----$675

I would have been tempted at the price you quoted--just to have one as a shooter. If you took care of it, you could always get your money back if you decided to sell it down the road.

I think $450 is a great price for a like new Dragoon with no box but I only started shooting a couple years ago, perhaps they were cheaper in the not to distant past.

$450 was a dirt cheap price. 2nd Gen prices are all over the map. Some are well below BB - like his one - and some are BB plus, and will never sell - at least in this lifetime.

I have a 2nd gen Dragoon at 98% condition up for sale at $100 below book and a 2nd gen 1861 Navy in 100% condition for $175 below book both with black boxes, unfired, etc and no bidders or takers for weeks. So I don't know what the prices are doing - not going up that's for sure.

In February of 2015, I bought a 2nd Gen Colt Dragoon in the black box, all paperwork and 100% condition for $515. I felt that was top price at the time???

All gun prices seem to be going down except for the modern autos. Things just dont sell on Gunbroker anymore unless you discount or have a high demand gun (SAA, Python etc). The collectors are not collecting as much unless you display your item at a gun show. A dealer friend of mine in the U.K. tells me the same thing as does my Colt dealer friend here in Minnesota. Things have slowed down.

I think you are seeing Peak Colt SAA too or close to it. I am seeing a bunch of 3rd gens under 2K. 6 months ago, seems like they were all over $2200 or more. I was looking at some USFA guns a few weeks back. Not a bid of any of them on GB with a start bid over $1800. I am not always sure GB is a good pulse of the market, but sooner or later you have to run out of people willing to pay $3000 for a Colt, I hope :)

We are getting close to the holidays. I think some people may be holding off on purchases until it gets closer to Christmas. Just two or three months ago there were threads asking if Colt 2nd Gens were going up in price.
