I would like to ask a question about possible value of a colt ace service model I picked up several years ago, I was thinking about putting it up for auction on Gun Broker. The bluing is about 99% the down side is that it has been reblued, who ever did it done a very nice professional job, the uniqueness to this gun though is that it is a single diget serial number #6. I know that there were only nine guns produced the first year of production, the army procured two for testing and one was given to the designer (Williams). I have a letter from Colt that states it was shipped to Department of Ordnance officer in charge Navel Supply Depot Sewall Point Virginia in 1937. I was just wondering how much the gun being refinished would detract from the value?

    Best to post quality, close-up photos. For a accurate assessment of value. Sight unseen, hard to call something like this. No offense, quality of aftermarket refinishing, tends to be subjective.

    EDIT If you do put it for sale come back on the GENERAL forum with topic SHAMELESS PLUG ACEPictures are a MUST if you want top dollar. a Doug Turnbull quality refinish could make it worth 5 times as much as one refinished by BUBBA

    As above BUT the rarity of it would realize a good value...Start it at a dollar, maybe run it 10 days and I think you will be surprised,,and there is no better place to buy and sell than here... Member for over 10 years...post an auction link if/ when you do..
