I am contemplating selling my Factory "B" Engraved Colts in .357 Magnum, 5.5 inch barrel. I do not have the box or paperwork, but I do have the letter from Colt showing that the guns were shipped together.

These are consecutive serial numbered guns shipped in March of 1979. I am struggling with the idea of selling these to grow my collection of other Colts. I am posting some pictures to hopefully get an idea of what to expect if I sell the pair. Guns are in beautiful condition with a very nice presentation case.

Thanks,
Rambler1

We have a "Want to Sell" sub-forum. You know better than most what you need for them, put a price on them in the appropriate forum. If they don't sell you can always come down.
Rick,
I can appreciate your comments. However, I have not decided that I want to sell the guns. I was looking for some advice on value. If I do decided to sell the guns, I would post in the "Want to Sell" forum.
Thanks,
Rambler1

I found a 2012 Colt engraving price list.

1_2012 Custom Retail Price List by Colt

I would take the MSRP for a current blue/cc SAA and add the engraving cost as a starting point.

My opinion after watching the market for years

Positives:

Excellent condition
Factory engraved

Negatives:

.357 Caliber
5 1/2” barrel

Neutral:

Consecutive S/Ns (saying this because the pool of buyers willing to pay the premium is smaller than for single guns)

Does factory letter say they were Colt factory engraved or just shipped together? SN? Post them on GB at reasonable want to sell price and see what market will bring!
