1- Colt New Service 1920 build date, 4 7/8" barrel, in .45 Long Colt cal. Gun has probably 60% original finish with balance patina. Civilian model but has smooth walnut grips and lanyard ring. Lockup, timing and barrel bore are excellant. No rust or pitting. Price $800.00 plus $25.00 shipping and insurance to your FFL.


2- Colt 1905 Army Issue with 90% original finish, excellant grips and bore, timing and lockup 100% perfect.
I have owned this Colt for about three years but just added another Colt Lightening and a S&W 125th Anniversary Model 1 of 50 to my keeper side so this one has to go.
Price $785.00 plus $25.00 shipping and insurance to your FFL

I cannot post pictures but if interested parties will send their email address I will forward pictures of either gun,
Thanks

I took new pictures of the 1903 Army Issue today, all I had over the weekend was a profile from each side taken almost three
years ago and I didn't feel well and I didn;t put the request for pictures in mt log book. If you wanted pictures and didn't get them I apologize and if you will send your email address to: [email protected] I will get them off to you pronto!

I'd like to know the serial number on the New Service. Please send pictures of the New Service to haggis[at]gforcecable.com (trying to fool the robot scanners).

Just following up with your inquiry for pictures and the serial number for my New Service .45 Long Colt. This revolver is great mechanical condition. I have owned maybe fifteen of what we all call Model 1917's and almost everyone I have ever owned had turned a greyish color because the original finish bluing was light colored and thin. I have seen one in person and read about them in magazines where they were sent to Turnbull Industries or Mfgr. and the do a great job of refinishing the guns in a deep dark Colt Royal Blue making them one of the most beautiful revolvers I have ever. Normally this kills any collectable value a gun might have but in this case I think it actually enhances the value of the gun. I even checked in to having one refinished by them. Somewhere here I have information that they sent me, plus they perform action or trigger "jobs" if you want . But this gun with the heavy short barrel would look great with that finish and with the trigger job would be a great shooter.
Just dreaming out loud to you I guess, did the serial number check out with you to be 1920 as it did with me?
Thanks,
Garrell
