colt 1903 .32
 
Hey guys, I recently acquired a Colt 1903 .32, according to serial number match up's it was manufactured in 1912, I'm interested in trading or selling it and was just wondering the estimated value of this? It's in fair condition, not perfect but nice and it fires. Thank you very much for your time.

:D haha, sorry guys my camera is m.i.a. as of the moment, was just curious if I could get some sort of rough estimate from someone who knows about these. It'd be much appreciated.

We'd really need pix to tell. Most of the ones I see are around $400 - 600 for newer models. Condition matters as well as matching numbers, mag to the gun; type and condition of grips; condition of the finish. Anything special about it? Papers?

Should have a buyer somewhere....

Well the serial numbers match, like I said this one apparently was made in 1912, so it's not exactly a newer model. Condition is good it's just not NIB kind of shiny. No papers, I live in Florida if that makes a difference. Thank you for that estimate though, would that still apply with the other details I provided?

Take a stroll over to auctionarms.com, and to gunbroker.com, do an advanced search, CLOSED auctions, last 90 days, 32 colt, and see what they have sold for. Look at the pics, and see how yours compares. Condition is EVERYTHING.

Just to add to my post, I've really only seen refinished ones. Only original finishes on those with provenance such as a letter from Colt or original receipts. Those can be priced up to $800.

Not sure if these are detailed enough, but here are pictures just taken. I don't have any of the paperwork. According to serial it was made in 1912, I've seen some of these sell for a few thousand, and have also seen a few sell for as little as $300, just curious as to how much I should ask for this one. Thank you very much for your time and advice.

Is the finish brown? Mine is brown but there are no other problems. I don't see any major dings and the grips look good. Are you going to sell at an auction site? I'd say to list it at $600 as a starting point and see what happens.

I personally like my '39 dated '03, but I don't have gun funds at the moment.

Any particular reason you're wanting to sell it? It makes a nice pocket gun or gun for someone sensitive to recoil. Maybe for a wife/daughter/mom/sister/lady friend? It is a Colt after all....
