Expert:  ProShooter replied 4 months ago.

What is written on the outside of the box?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I don't know what's on the front of the Box all I have is the picture I'm just trying to see if I can find out what it's worth before I buy it
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
The party is supposed to bring them to my house today and let me look at them in person
Expert:  ProShooter replied 4 months ago.

oh...you don't have this gun in your possession? Now I understand. What model of Colt is it being advertised as?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I'm not sure it's a friend of mine's collection is dad passed away and he is selling them to me
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I'll know more when I see them
Expert:  ProShooter replied 4 months ago.

Ok...the gun itself is a bit difficult to see so I cannot make out exactly which model it is. It would be easier to see out of the box. What are they asking for it?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I could probably get the gun for around 4:50 $500
Expert:  ProShooter replied 4 months ago.

It almost looks too pristine to be original......There appears to be something written on the cylinder flute....can you see it?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No I can't make it out because I don't have the gun in front of me but I'm sure they are for real because I know the man that had them when he was alive and he bought them years ago so I know it's pretty old I don't know how old
Customer: replied 4 months ago.

This is the emblem on the box
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Close up
Expert:  ProShooter replied 4 months ago.

That emblem indicates that its one of the reproduction guns, from around the 1990's if I recall correctly. I'm researching it now.

Expert:  ProShooter replied 4 months ago.
