Our gun auctions include Colt firearms of the past and present like the Colt Python, Colt Cobra, Colt 45, Walker Colt and, of course, the Single Action Army (aka the Peacemaker).
As you peruse our seemingly endless list of live auction listings, you're sure to discover a wide variety of Colt firearms for sale.
This gives you a serial number range that generally identifies the year but sometimes oddities occur and numbers get shipped later, etc.
For models without a serial number, we may be able to determine the age by the 2-3 letters that are stamped on the barrel.
If your firearm does have a serial number, if you will call or email us the serial number and model number we can determine the approximate age of your firearm.
This is because these guns aren't that old and the letter prefix itself will give you a relative idea of when the rifle was manufactured.
The "dating" service is intended more for dating and documenting the older collectable guns that are no longer in production and were made prior to 1968.
