Default imitation colt

Has anyone ever seen or heard of a handgun that is stamped on the barrel Texas Ranger Colt 32-20 but is made in Belgium with black grips but instead of a horse it has an elk, was a great grandfathers weapon from around the late 1800's.

Dunno bout the 1800's, I don't think they're that old. There's no collector interest so not worth much. One in .38 spcl. sold on Gunbroker for 87.50

Mark- sorry, but- and this is a SERIOUS answer- value is zero. It is a Federal Felony to possess a firearm from which the serial number has been removed. From 18 US Code, 922, para K-
(k) It shall be unlawful for any person knowingly to transport,
ship, or receive, in interstate or foreign commerce, any firearm
which has had the importer's or manufacturer's serial number
removed, obliterated, or altered or to possess or receive any
firearm which has had the importer's or manufacturer's serial
number removed, obliterated, or altered and has, at any time, been
shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce.


Some guns never HAD a serial number, and that is OK- but once a serial number has been removed, it becomes contraband.

This gun doesnt look like it ever had a serial # nothing is filed off , it looks like somebody scratch off the logo on the grips but everthing else looks original. Thanks for the info

check under the grips and under the topstrap. euro gunmakers pre1900's sometimes liked to hide the serial number in odd locations for aesthetic reasons.
