    $5-$5K

    Get us pics and more info/details. Colt values are effected by many variables and the "rough idea what it's worth" without pics and info is pointless.

    No pic. 4.5 inch stainless average shape. Would you trade a unfired bushmaster for it?

    Well I made the trade with Armedurbanartist on this site. Nice gun. I've always wanted one these since I was 15. I'm happy.

    In the long run you won't lose with a discontinued gun, and a Colt also. Enjoy, I hope to have one myself one day soon.

    I bought one when they first came out. They were all stainless that year my cost as a dealer was $400. Sold it a couple of years later to a good friend for the same price, thinking I could just get another. Wrong. Next time I looked the dealer price was $800.

    It is the only 44 magnum I have shot that was as comfortable as a Dan Wesson to shoot, but not as accurate. My Bluebook (4 years old) says the early model (90-99) is $950 retail in new condition (retail), but that would vary a bit on how much one wants to pay, and what the seller wants. Add 10% for the 45 colt as it is more scarce. The 2002-2006 custom shop version runs a bit more.

    The one thing I hated about the gun was the red ramp front sight, which for me made it hard to aim and I removed it as soon as I got it. Sweet otherwise.
