Default Colt .45acp New Service

I have a chance to buy this gun, the gentlemen wants me to make an offer or trade the problem is I know little about wheel pistols.
I have only seen small pic. , he will be sending me better pis’s or bringing it buy, told it in great conditions ,SS and never altered
This gentleman seems confused himself about it using Colt ACP. I do know that some older wheel guns used this caliber, and I have heard of moon clips which I am also not familiar with.
I would appreciate any info that I can get on this Colt new service .45acp with what little of a description I have gave. Also the only #’s I have been told are 270** new service 45 colt u 5 1884 j 4 1905

Any thought about a fair price to offer fro poor to VG ?

Thanks for any help

Made from 1898 to 1946. The basis of the Colt version of the M-1917 .45 ACP revolver. This may be the gun he is thinking of. Never made in Stainless steel (if that is what you mean by SS). Possibly satin nickled, but that was not a factory offering.

There was no custom shop in those days. If it is stamped US Goverment property it was NOT factory nickle. If you are looking for a shooter it may be ok. For a collector, it has virtually no value. For a shooter, I might give $250
