I have not seen it yet, but a friend of mine has an old Colt SAA that he wants me to look at. According to him, it is a 1st Gen, 1903, 38 WCF, sn#138,xxx, in very good condition. I'm looking in the Blue Book and seeing values in the neighborhood of $10,000. Am I on the right page?

    I'm trying to help my dad find out as much about his Colt as I can. He has a Colt 45 single action revolver with a 4inch barrol, nickel plated and pearl handgrips. Form the info he has so far it was made in 1901 and the value is at 9000.00 he wants to find as much about it before he sells it. Any info on how we can go about finding things out would be helpful, thanks.

    today my girlfriend showed me an old Colt cap and ball pistol that her grandfather gave her. All that was stamped on it was some Colt info and a serial number, 114xxx. i tried to find some info on it myself but i don' know enough about it, like what model it is. the pics I'm posting are not the best, there off my cell, if there not enough ill try to take better pics later on.
    Thank you,
