Is it the one in the large pictures the gun in question? If it is and has a collet barrel busing it would be a transition 80 series nickel parts over run two tone. If it has a solid barrel bushing it would be a series 80 parts overrun nickel, and nothing special. If it had the Collet bushing with a 70;s rollmark and the FPS it would be interesting for a colllector.PS: With box and papers I would put it at 800-1100 dollar range at this time. It looks to be in 85-90% condition and the box and papers will get you closer to the upper end.

Yes it is.Head the warning about the hoppe's#9 also. I would take good care or those grips too. I have a set just like them and they are almost unreplaceable in the exact configration. If it were mine I would put some reg, pacs. on it and save those if you are ging to handle it alot. Oil solvents ect. will deteriate them quickly. They are a major point to keep original in this partical model gun. Not many other factory Colt's have the exact grips as these. Save them for resale. Armorall will help preserve them also.PS: I was talking about the grips on the second gun pictured with the rubber lip that extends by the magazine. Yours maybe more common. The one's that don't say Colt on the thumbrest are rare.
