Winner winner chicken dinner. You are correct. Be careful if buying one that is advertised as NIB BSTS. Check out the label and post as many photos as you can here on the forum. We can help you determine originality. D*Do you mean that many of the Bright stainless guns that are advertised are actually polished aftermarket and are not factory original?

Another good thing to check is if the seller has sold a lot of NIB BSTS guns. You'll find that some sellers sell a lot of these guns complete with box and paperwork, and you just gotta ask yourself how they can find that many mint guns, and why they are all stainless.Winner winner chicken dinner.

Saw that as well. Wonder why the "List of Buyers" just don't go to the gunshow and save $1-2 KI just watched a forum vendor who has their own tv show buy 2 STS Pythons, 1 BSTS Python, and 1 custom shop Anaconda at the Tulsa show for $3K a piece.
The BSTS was a 6", and they all had their boxes/papers and appeared like new.
Not too shabby for $3K a piece.
Whether that was actually real or scripted I don't know. The show is actually more sickening than enjoyable due to seeing Colts. Talk about desperately trying to push the hype of "snakes". Completely amazed that they have lists of clients all eager to pay them. There are some slow learners out there.
This is a good ballpark, with pullback in prices last 1-2 years.NIB, 4.5-5K. 4K would be a steal.
$4K for this one. How does it look? (I am not looking to buy it).This is a good ballpark, with pullback in prices last 1-2 years.
This is a collector- type item, best to go with a trustworthy seller- and/or learn more, and see more in person, before purchase of a "NIB" item.
Educations are expensive... this Colt collector mantra is no joke.
Collector -grade NIB Colts are worth it though.
Thats a great point. Seeing it more and more each day. Recently saw a Colt Auto in 38 Super that had been polished soJust keep in mind that this is the most faked gun ever.
