Since, I do not plan on selling the gun, I am going to have to share the joy for shooting this thing with my son. Thanks for everyone's input, I plan on bringing it to a gunsmith this week for a general lookover. I'll give you a report after we go shoot.

I would take into consideration what news you get from the gunsmith before you make a final decision on shooting the pistol. Unfired the gun might send one of your kids to college. You don't know about gun values in the future. I never thought one of my colts would be worth anything when I got them. After all what could a gun be worth that was only worth $159 at the time of purchase.

Think about what John Deer said. And if you shoot it, give us a video.

John_ here is a little bit about the pistol

Manufactured in 1979 in a limited series of 3,000. The top of the barrel is marked with one line address, "NED BUNTLINE COMMEMORATIVE" on the left, and " COLT NEW FRONTIER S.A.A. .45" marked on the right. Left of the frame is marked with the two line, three patent dates followed by the Rampant Colt. Fitted with a raised ramp front sight, adjustable rear sight, and checkered Rampant Colt/Federal Eagle grips. Complete with wooden presentation case lined with maroon velvet, and features a commemorative plaque and six nickel plated dummy cartridges. The issue price was $895 with todays auctions selling the guns for $900-1200.

Apparently the Ned Buntline didn't get the benefit of Felton Perry using one in a movie. The value of the diamondback was jacked up due to the popularity of the movie Magnum Force.
