That thing just takes your breath away. Way too nice for my pile. I'll have one someday. It won't be as nice. I blew my budget last week on a 1908 model m .380. It was worht it.
Good luck bidding. You really should have that thing.

That one is a beauty I just hope someone doesn't get stupid and run the bid too high, I try to never bid against another forum member so best of luck Ron let us know how it turns out

Ronald, good luck acquiring that really fine pre-war DS, one of the nicest ones I have ever seen. It is quite breathtaking. It would look great in my collection - or anybody's collection.

While I put it on my watch list, I shall not bid against you. It would simply be bad form to bid against a fellow Coltforum member, the one who called this fine revolver to my attention.

I doubt it will go cheap.

Thanks gentelman. If it gets to a certain point where I can't afford it (being retired and that fixed income limit), I will bow out and let the members her have a chance. Take care, Ron

Lovely piece. The kind of thing I have to make a strong effort to ignore, because once it comes home I keep thinking it's too pretty to shoot. Good luck.

Really nice looking gun there! Good luck on the bidding.

I dont want to hijack the thread, but I just have to use this as an example: Kudos to this seller for a buyer friendly format. So many sellers are so afraid on Gunbroker to list a gun without a hidden reserve. If the gun is a good clean example like this one, it WILL sell, and WONT sell cheap. I like these no reserve auctions because the buyer doesnt have to waste their time researching a gun that may or may not be within the range of what he is willing to spend. My theory is, if you HAVE to get a certain amount of money out of something, ie 500 bucks, etc., then start the bidding at 500 and let it go from there. Just my two cents! Also I appreciate how this seller has nice pics to, so much easier to buy when you can see it!

Okay, back to the topic at hand!

For fellow forum members. I am bowing out of the auction. Has gotten to the point where my meager retired pay just won't allow me to get it..
So, fellow mmbers, go for it!
I don't don't know who the current high bidder is, but he beat me out on another one recently. He is determined to snap every one up I guess.

I've been following the auction since I got your email about it a few weeks ago and since you posted this thread. I was rooting for you and I'm sorry it went this high. I wanted you to get it.

It is already $1200 with 9 hours left. If will probably go for over 95% BB value of $1625. Just a guess.

Ron, sorry you had to bow out hopefully the guy is a Colt nut like we are with a little extre money but like you said he has beat you out before so it sounds like its a case of buy high and sell higher. But don't be discourged thrie out there Mike and I both lucked out a few months ago and each got one that were shipped within two or three weeks of each other so hang in there

I'm sorry you had to let go too. It is a really nice looking gun.
Be patient & I'll bet one will come along that has your name all over it.
