    My great-uncle served in WW2 (Navy), and this was passed down to me a few years ago after he passed. I was looking up Colt Police 38 (this is not a .38 special) - apparently he purchased this sometime after the war. From comparing this to a true police positive, it looks like the stock was replaced? (thus lowering the value) and its not in 100% condition, some minor pitting. The pistol fires nicely and I've taken it to the range a couple times. I'm looking to see if any Colt experts can give me more information on this particular model, average price and any fun facts. I keep this one under the bed, as I feel that it is very reliable.

    Thanks!

    Looks like about $400-450 even with the Pachmayr grips, as long as the lockup is good and the condition is as good as the pics seem to be.

    Looks like it was refinished at some point in it's lifetime.
