Check the slide to frame fit. Check if there is any play between the barrel and barrel bushing. Make sure it still locks up relatively tight. It's going to have a little play, but that's okay. You just don't want anything excessive. Provided those items are without issue, I'd try to get the gun for $200, but would gladly pay the $250. That's pretty much an original Colt gun with just different rolls marks.

Different roll marks, slightly different composition to the steel (supposedly stronger and heavier, haven't fact checked that myself). Built on original Colt factory equipment, and from original Colt factory schematics.

Its a 1958. The serial numbers match up except for the mag. Still a good deal I suppose, looks pretty good. Was bought at an estate sale.
