Registered Magnum at Auction

Registered Magnum #943 is up for bids on Auction Arms. If you've ever wondered about these stopried guns, this is an auction to watch.
This gun was shipped to Connecticutt in 1936 with the following features: 6.5 in. barrel, no. 35 Marble's ivory bead front sight, magna grips. This gun is very nice and carries most of the original finish. Gun is in the correct box (box does not have the white tape on bottom) box has brush and paper insert. Bore and mechanics are excellent, lock up and timing are right. All numbers match on the gun, with the exception of the grips, which are correct but do not number to the gun.

All of 'em just way too nice... especially the Colt .38 Super 1911A1... looks almost like new in the photos and if you've not looked at the values on pre-war .38 Supers... well, they're high enough to cause serious nose bleed. This one is no exception. Older Colts have such power.

The Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum 3 1/2" N frame is a genuine jewel. Xavier, does "Mona Lisa" apply to this one? She is as perfect as you'll ever see... and only a slight trace of cylinder ring. Definitely more "affordable" than the Colt... still out of "shooter" range for me.

Well, Xavier, I can look and drool all day long at these... want 'em I do... but reality says keep pounding the pavement lookin' for pawnshop deals!!!

All that said, I for one would be reluctant to purchase a pre-war Colt 1911A1 for price close to or in excess of $10,000 unless I were able to view it first in a "hands on" manner. Certainly, I would insist on seeing Colt's archive letter in entirety. Regarding the S&W "pre" Model 27 "N" frame revolver... well it also looks almost too good to be true, and a copy of an e-mail is not verfiable. Give me a letter signed by Mr. Jinks.
