The finish is blue, the trigger and slide safety appear a bit lighter of a blue as most guns made then do. I've never sold a gun on an auction side and have no experience shipping a fire arm through a FFL, I was just thinking about selling it at a gun show perhaps. Maybe I should look into an auction site. But the reason I am selling is that at the moment I'm not a fan of older guns, and I don't have half of my dream list of guns, so I don't have room for the red headed stepchild at the moment Thanks for your advice though, much appreciated. How much should I ask at a gun show?

Thanks for the info. Yeah, I knew it was a blued gun, but has the finish patinaed into a brown or is most of the finish remaining? I couldn't really tell from the pix.

I'd say ask $400 and see what happens, but as it's an early model maybe ask $500. If you really want to sell it that is.

I'd say it's mostly blued, this is the first blued gun I've owned and don't know much about describing quality of the finish haha. Also, the slide safety works, but there is a very small chip in the part that you put the slide safety in to hold the slide back. As a result you can not lock the slide back. But thanks for your advice, I guess I'll be asking about $450 for it at the next show.

P.S. Does anyone know where I can find an online diagram of disassembly instructions?

I would say about 400-450 would be about right for the looks of that gun. It is not a red-headed step child though. You need to go and shoot it and it will be on your list of wanted guns then. Those are fantastic little shooters. Some question the stopping power of the little 32's, but I love those and would be very comfortable carrying mine. I know shot placement is what counts and it is a very accurate gun. I have a very very very nice one and a Colt Combat Elite 45 also. The Colt 32 is one of my favorite all time guns. Designed by John Browning as was the 1911 45 I believe. General Patton used to carrry one also.
