I don't see where you get the west hurley stuff from.
It seems to me that this gun occupies the twilight zone between collector item and shooter.
A Colt missing the original barrel and possibly some other expensive parts and with some condition issues is pretty far down the totem pole of Colts.
Colts tend to get purchased by hardcore gun collector types, the kind of guys who put a very high premium on condition and originality.
I don't envision one of those type guys getting too excited about this gun.
but we shall see
