I would appreciate opinions on the value of a Colt New Service revolver that I saw today. The gun has what appears to my less than expert eye about 50% of the original bluing left. All honest wear with no rust,pits,nicks or dings. A little cylinder play,but nothing serious. It has a last patent date of 1926,IIRC. The barrel is 7 1/2",calibre is .45 Colt. The frame and stocks are marked RAC,which I believe are the initials of military inspector Renaldo A. Carr,but there are NO U.S. property marks of any kind. The gun is on consignment at a favorite shop. What do y'all think a fair price would be? Thanks!

Thanks fellas. I agree that the gun has been rebarreled. The serial # is 58218,so that puts it at 1913. The butt on the grip frame has been polished,very neatly I might add,to obliterate any markings. The bore is somewhat dark,but no pitting. Asking price is $349. I think I'll offer him $250. I think it would be worth it as a shooter. BTW,they have test fired the gun and everything functions fine. I would do the same before buying. He has a range out back. I appreciate the comments.
