My gun is a bit of a odd one but from what I can tell its a 1918 Colt with a Ithaca slide from god knows when. Most of the USGI marking have been filed away except H/G and the SN# printed on the Colt frame which is one from a 1943 Ithaca. I believe this gun to of had a full make over quite sometime ago to make it unidentifiable. I have paper work on the gun from where it was seized by Florida Highway Patrol in 1981 and it had the same SN# on the gun then, as it does now. I think they over look all the details of it and signed the gun over to my grandpa which I was inherited it from him.
The rifiling in the barrel has been sanded out hints why I want a new barrel. I am assuming this was probably done the same time as the rest of the refinishing. Who ever done the work on this gun seem to know what they were doing.
So from all this I would say the value of the gun is not very high on the market but to me as a heirloom its worth a lot. My father did not want me to get a new barrel for it to shoot with but its worth more to me as a working gun then something in a box.
