I have a used Colt .45 Models 1991 only fired a couple times. I'm the original owner and bought it in 1999 for ~$600 I have an interested buyer but have no idea on a price was hoping someone could help.
Thanks

Update It's stamped 1991A1. Called 01091 Stainless
Yes it is a Colt dtill in the orignial case with barcode sticker on case with more numbers listed.

I think $650-$700 is what I'll ask hopefuly this will get me a decient used starter trap gun. If I'm way off let me know.

Thanks

It isn't that simple. Lots of variations, like the series (70 - 80), Combats, National match, commanders, etc.

All have differing values today for whatever reason.

Blue book listings are there. What do you have?

Nobody in their right mind would take $350.00 for a Colt. Is it the mil spec replica, laynard and all that? Probably in the $650.00 to $800.00 range would be a more accurate price. Put it on gunbroker with a $500.00 no reserve and see how long it takes someone to jump on it. Better yet, go to www.1911.org and ask there in the Colt section. John

The Mil-Spec models with the non-adjustable sights, etc. Can be had from Sportman's Warehouse for $500-$550 NEW, just an FYI.

But those are the SA models, not colt.

1. Call colt with the serial number and they can tell you exactly what model it is and should also be able to tell you what the original MSRP was for that weapon.

2. Ask the interested buyer what they were thinking of spending on it and begin dickering from there. You might find that he is already willing to spend more than what you want for it.

3. Be sure to send us all a research and consulting fee.

4. When you speak with Colt chances are they will be able to tell you on the spot what the possible value that weapon might still have ... ya never know but they just might be able to tell you.

Sam, there are several hundred dollars difference between a Springfield and a Colt. Colt has put out a mil spec replica and I promise you that it is higher than $500.00. I'll check the 1911 forum just to see. John

Go to www.collectorfirearms.com They have a very slightly used one for $995.00. They still make very small runs of them, the next one should be out in October. They have a nib one for $1125.00. John

Did I miss something here?

The guy said he had a model 1991,,,,,, NOT 1911 or 1911A1

Should be stamped Model 1991A1

Akemper98, Gun List/Digest always has a few listed. I just tossed out the last 12 or 15 issues or I could give you some numbers. You can check GunsAmerica for the going rate on these.

Magnumshot was right, nothing special about this model. When Colt brought them out in 1991 the "blued" model was more black matte than blue. The SS model looked a little better but nothing like a series 70 or even an 80. The wholesale price was around $359.00 when the first came out.

The 26th edition Blue Book has the matte finish 100% at $725.00, but I would check the real world numbers first. My WHOLESALE price TODAY on that pistol is $625.90 Colt #CT01991. The SS model is $667.90 Colt # CT01091

I checked the April 6th issue of the List for you Akemper98. There is a 1991 matte listed for $539.00. Doesn't say what condition. There is a NIB blued 80 series Commander for $750.00. I paid $500 for a LNIB full size 80 series in 2006.

I think if yours IS a 1991A1 matte finish you might have trouble getting the original $600.00 out of it. Good Luck

BTW bcnu, the model that Colt calls "Model 1911 WW1 Faithfull Reproduction" , notice NO A1 after the number, just 1911, wholesales for $789.90 so the guy asking $1125 might have it a while.

I saw that it was a 1991, I don't think that he will have a hard time getting 6 to 7 hundred out of it at all. And I did not say that the guy with one priced at 1125 wouldn't have it awhile, just that they are selling way over the 350 price listed above. Also AJ, did you see if the place that had those prices actually had the guns in stock? I went to order a Taurus PT1911 a month or so ago and Zanders had them for only 399.00, the only problem is that they didn't actually have any. You could put them up for sale at a hundred bucks but if you don't have any what have you got? Still nothing. Ended up getting one from a local dealer that actually had hands on for $550.00 I would buy Colts all day long at 350. You should still go over and check out the website www.m1911.org. Anything about Colt or any other 1911 will be found on there. It is like a more polite trapshooters.com lol. You know, rules and stuff. Only they are strictly enforced there. John
