Default Info on an ASM 3rd Model Colt Dragoon Replica Revolver Rifle

I recently acquired a .44 caliber Armi San Marco replica of a 3rd Model Colt Dragoon black powder percussion revolver with a rifle stock from the estate of my late father-in-law.



He purchased the gun new, and I shot it about 10 years ago.





I have done some preliminary research, and have found conflicting information of how rare it is and the value.



From the prefix in the box on the right side of the frame, are the letters, AB. It was made in 1976.



It is in about 80 to 85% condition, as it has some small rust spots starting on the barrel, but the wood, case hardening of the frame, and the engravings on cylinder are still in great condition.



The barrel is 18", and it has a detachable shoulder stock with blue steel hardware.



U have seen prices of $275 to $400 for just the gun, $600 to $800 for the shoulder stock, and $1800 for the entire gun.



I tried finding the value in a blue book of gun values, and Gun Digest, and could not find anything.



Is this a rare gun, would anyone be able to provide a definitive answer on its value?



Thanks,

http://www.gunsinternational.com/Armi-San-Marco-1851-3rd-Model-Dragoon-18-Barrel-Shoulder-Stock.cfm?gun_id=100149977&CFID=12295415&CFTOKEN=4 ff1c114903b92da-EE1C58D6-90B1-1C33-46133E54DD5C070E

listed as $895 & $995 or $1800 for both at current prices, these are rare combos but are still only replicas of the originals. I've seen shoulder stock combos sell in this range before, but its a slow sale. You need to find the right buyer. Hope this helps.

About $600 for the revolver and $200 for the stock, is what they seem to be going for lately. Bottom line: it will bring what someone will pay. Gun show sale would be lowest; a good auction site might bring more. The latest black powder value book has the regular ASM 3rd Model with 7.5" barrel at $375 in 100% condition, for what that's worth ;-) Values seem to be going down in the books, and up in the auctions. Deals are to be had once in a while, but more often than not these days high asking prices in the auctions go unsold. Original Colt (1st Gen) is premium, then Colt black box (2nd Gen) brings the highest, then Signature Series Colts (3rd Gen) Uberti next, then ASM and finally Pietta/Navy Arms, the lowest.
