I have a S&W Sigma in .357sig which are pretty rare, doesn't mean its collectible. I am sure not going to get any premium on it.

IMHO, Keep the Colt. It will be worth more down the road and is a better gun now.

If you get rid of it, you will always regret the decision.

If you keep it, you can always buy another gun to add to the collection.

If it was a good deal, the other guy would not be eager to make the deal. After all, he knows what he has now and wants your gun instead of the one he has.

I had a Colt Officer's model in .45acp that I let an attorney in my office talk me out of back in 1997. To this day I regret letting that Colt leave my collection. I have offered the guy twice what he paid for it so I could get it back.

Keep the Colt. Five years from now, you can thank me for the advice.

I agree with oldman45. I had a Combat Commander, satin nickle, in .45 ACP and sold it when I needed money. Later I realized I could have kept it if I'd done a little more thinking. I'll always regret selling that gun. Don't sell yours!

Bullcrap! I'd give you $200 for it easily!

THanks for the good advice guys. I am going to keep it and just save up and buy the FNAR. I am glad I consulted the experts!

Ever wonder why they are rare?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I have seen that myself. I have seen old guns that end up not worth nothing. You always place old with valuable then to find out it is not.

Just do a little bit of research just for your own sake.
