Value of pair of Colt Cowboy .45LC,5.5, Stag grips, 1999

bonshaw54bonshaw54 Member Posts: 2

I have a pair of 1999 Colt Cowboys - matching - non-consecutive serial numbers ("0" plus four digits both less than #TF02500 and difference of 869 serial numbers), plus a beautifully tooled rig for them. I understand the Cowboy was made from 1999-2003 although I have not established how many were manufactured, so these are first year. Excellent condition. Looking for opinions on current price. Not sure I want to sell but could provide pictures if I decide to. Appreciate any input - have reviewed some prices on GB but difficult to value pair with 869 serial number difference, the stag grips and the rig.

    Just looked up some of the sold ones and I am telling you I would sell them now as the market seems real HIGH. With the fake case coloring and it is a virtual cheapened copy of the SAA and bringing as much as the real ones. IMO only I don't think the serial numbers would add any value. Might sell the stag grips aside from the pistols, as with the holster rig. And I would sell the pistols' separately especially if you had the boxes ect. IMO I think you would realize the maximum that way. If you are a NEW seller, right now there are many scammers on and I would wait and buy a couple things quickly to get some feedback. Been buying, selling here for over 20 years and my advice is worth the time I put up posting an answer to your question. Good luck.

    I agree with the Grasshopper 100% which shows how smart he is.

    OR you could send them to RIcci Wright the above poster who can get the most out of them who has quite a following of buyers without all the hassle for a small fee. That would be another good route.

    IMO the serial numbers being so far apart won’t bring any more money. But it’s a crazy gun market right now. If those are real stags and not fake, toss in the rig and you should have no problem getting $1600-$1800 to the right buyer(mainly someone looking to get in Cowboy Action shooting. My friend bought one brand new in 2002 and paid around $600. The Colt Cowboy was unfortunately a flop for Colt and doesn’t bring as much as a SAA.
