Dug this back out after it being in a drawer for a few years and am starting to clean it back up. Can someone help me with a year of mfg for this, the Colt site doesn't tell me anything. Do these things currently have any value? Serial is 35274U

1976 was the transition year on the MKIII from silver to gold medallions. MKIII's made in 1976 can be found with silver or gold medallions and '77 up had gold. Your MKIII has the correct stocks and medallions. :D

Boy that's a gorgeous gun! I do like nickel, 2 of my 3 Colts are, a 70 series Government and a 4" Python. They're shooters, but I don't shoot much anymore, usually take my Smith 581 and 29. Sorry for the blasphemous post! Love y'all, mean it.

I wish I had bought one back when they were reasonable. I don't generally buy Colts made after the 1940s but I've always wanted one of those. They are such a good looking gun.
You'd have no trouble getting $800+ for that piece. Even 5 years ago though $250 was a steal.
Wanna trade something for it? :)
