Rummaging around again, I found another forgotten purchase, a 1983 New In Box Colt 1873 Peacemaker in 45LC with a 4-3/4 inch barrel. It has rubber grips and was purchased from an investor who never even turned the cylinder (I think it still has the plastic tie to prevent the hammer from being cocked).

What is the estimated value of this "safe queen"? I don't know if the market for these has remain static or has it gone up or down? The gun is in the original box.

    The revolver you describe, a 3rd Gen SAA, 45 x 4 3/4" x HR, is still available new from Colt. See what stocking dealers are selling theirs for, and yours should be priced a bit less because, technically, it is now "Used".

    As they're still in production. it's most likely in the $1,200 - $1,300 range.
