Default Colt DA 41

Nice to know that some revolvers are worth some money. There is a big gun show in Calgary Alberta in April and I might take it there to see if I can sell or trade it.

Good Morning,
I am doing an inventory on my late father's gun collection and I came across a Colt DA 41 EXACTLY like the one pictured in your post. I believe mine has a 4" barrel, although if measured from front or barrel to frame, it is 3 5/8" long.
Grips are same, but very worn and one corner of each grip is broken off. Checkering in worn smooth.

Trying to put a value on the pistol for insurance purposes.

Thanks,
Steve R
Durham, NC

Hi Steve! Welcome to the forum. When you get a minute, stop over by the intro thread and say howdy.

In re: your revolver- the value of any gun is based on EXACT make, model, and condition. There are two very close (but different) versions of that Colt revolver- the Model 1889 and the 1892- and there is a first, second, thrid issue, etc. Difference between a 70% and a 90% is substantial.

Just as a really wild, stab in the dark, mildly educated guess, your Colt may be worth $1000 to $2000. You REALLY need a hands on assessment from an old Colt expert.

Re: barrel length- open cylinder. Place a flat obect like a ruler across the opening at the rear of the barrel (the forcing cone) Slide a rod or dowel near to bore size into bore until it stops at the ruler. Mark it at the muzzle, withdraw, measure.

One of the local dealers has/had a Colt DA 41 in their showcase. $600 and includes 3 boxes of ammo.

Good looking gun, on cosignment, but when I asked about ammo and reloading, I heard the bad news.

I passed.

I have the lower one except blue metal and black handle. D A 41. This means double acting - correct? Serial number 130219. Estimated values?
