Default WWII 45 cal. revolver

Does anyone out there know if there is a market for a WWII 45 Cal Revolver (not 1911 automatic). I have one and wonder if there is ever an inquiry for such a thing.

There is a market for ANYTHING if the price is right!

What is it? I'm going to assume it's a "Model of 1917", either a Colt
or Smith and Wesson. Not really a WWII revolver---they were originally
developed for WWI. Is it original? Not refinished? Do you have the
holster with it? What's the make and serial number---maybe someone
here can tell you when it was made.

You say it is 45 caliber. Is it a 45 Colt or 45 ACP?

There was an English 45 caliber revolver called the Webly too .

How about posting a picture so we can figure out what it is .

The Canadians and English both bought the Commercial Colt New Service revolver, in .45 Colt. I have a box of metal jacketed .45 Colt made by Dominion Cartridge Co. dated Jul. 1944 and marked for "Use in .45 Colt New Service Revolver."

Also, some M1917 revolvers were issued during WW II, and were in service as late as 1955 or so.

P.S. Incidentally, I saw a pristine Colt New Service, apparently late production, offered for $1245.00
