Anyways, a friend was looking to buy it, but then passed, then oddly enough, my dad was looking to buy it (Maybe coming over and seeing my 1921 finally got him to take the plunge). After posting about it here though and learning that it's a known rewat and has a new barrel, I knew that it was clearly not worth the $35,000 asking price of the gun. Not when similar Colts still with their original barrels are available right now for $31-$37 from Ruben, who always has things high. I offered $30,000 for what it was, but no go. Perfectly fine, as there are better fish in the sea for my dad, and the seller is more than welcome to sell it for whatever he wants. Eventually someone always bites.
Well sure enough that happened! I decided to check in on the gun to see if he would consider $30 again, and funny enough he said he sold it for $38,000 to a well known dealer who is getting it for a customer. It was a nice looking Colt except for that rewat status and new barrel. I can only say that I hope the end buyer know what they were buying. If the buyer knew though and still wanted to pay $38,000+whatever the dealer tacked on for it, then damn good job to the seller! $38,000+ though for that.....Yikes.
