To me, clips (magazines, some get mad over that), make no difference. On a gun that old, I would probably be getting new ones anyway.

Be very careful not to sprain your wrist while lunging for your wallet. Stuff money in seller's pocket. Take gun. Scurry home. Lock door. Maniacial laughter.

Think that about covers it.

You robbed the seller of a minimum of 300 bucks. Some of these go for an average of 6-7 hundred depending on condition and the market. Some special specimen's have gone for upwards of 2K (the ones built BY Colt under contract, in very rare mint condition).

Just red tape. Proof that the gun was legally imported to the US by an authorized importer.
