Evaluating a 1914 Colt
This old Colt might look decent to some.......but take a gander at the front strap. There's quite a bit of space between the round and the grip. The edge of the slide's round looks a bit high too.....This pistol had a lot of pitting shaved off. Then the markings were replaced in a decidedly non-Colt fashion.........in dot matrix!

What's it worth? It's a one of a kind now..........Hopefully.
