    I would guestimate that if it's ANIB it will pull $850 to $950. Prices are down a little bit this winter, and the nickel on these particular guns usually does a little less than the comparable item in blue. The Colt satin nickel doesn't wear well like a polished/bright nickel finish. But they are good looking.

    thanks Oro. top of slide is satin as well as back strap, slide sides are bright. don't think its a good candidate for any custom work afraid it might ruin finish. but i am just guessing on that.

    If it's a bright nickel and it's factory, then it's maybe worth a premium. The bright nickel ones were pretty rare. Can you post a photo of it?

    Here's a step by step guide on how to post a picture:

    First, click on this link: http://www.tinypic.com/

    [​IMG]

    I know there's a LOT going on, but right in the middle you will find "Upload Images & Videos"

    Click on "Browse..." this will open up a small window in which you will locate the picture you'd like to show us. When you find the picture, click on it and hit the open button on that new window.

    [​IMG]

    It will now take you back to the original website and the first line ("File") will now be filled in.

    Hit "Upload Now" and wait a few seconds.

    The page will update, and you will see "Share this image" followed by some confusing text.

    The second line of text should say "IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards"

    Highlight everything everything in that box (it starts with [ IMG ] and ends with [ /IMG ] ) copy the text, and paste it into your reply here.

    Hit submit reply and you're done!
