Some time ago I was looking for a .380 to add to my collection primarily as a shoot. I purchased a govt. pocket lite with Nickel/Teflon finish. At time of purchase it was ANIB. It is engraved on the left side of the slide, "Lightning .380" It came with original packagaging, including the outer cardboard shell. I could not locate it in the Blue Book, so I called Colt and found out it came out of the custom shop in a production run of 497. Unfortunately as it was orignally a shooter, I fired two clips through it prior to learing this. Any idea on its value. It has not been shot since.

it sounds really cool to me, i think time is on your side. i carried my pony pocketlite for a year before i heard about the colt company implosion, if i'd known i would have done what you did, i don't think a few rounds through a gun really hurts the value as long as there arent any serious marks. when i find something to fill the niche of my pocketlite i'll send it out to scott mcdougal for a refinish and some custom work.
