    Colt .22 Conversion Unit (1956)

    When I was given the Colt 1911 that a close friend of mine had since the early 50s, I also got the Colt .22 Conversion Unit too. This unit is around the 1956 time of production. Although well used it has about 95% of original bluing, all original parts, magazine, wrapping, instructions, and box. The slide stop has the #2 on the back. Slide assembly has straight up and down serrations, all parts are original. This is not a Colt ACE conversion unit. In the condition shown, what do you think a fair market value would be?

    I remember seeing a similar Colt .22 conversion for sale locally several years ago, but I am sorry to say that I can't remember what the asking price was. I do remember that it sold fairly quickly.

    I'm going to take a wild guess and say perhaps around $500. Maybe a tad more since you have the box and it's in good condition.

    I'd guess a little higher. 600+ I've got one that I paid 600 for several years ago. It's in a little nicer condition. It also has the slip cover for the box. I'd never even heard of that let alone seen one. So I bought it. Kind of an impulse thing. I've never regretted it.

    After reading what I just typed, maybe Hawkmoon is right!

    Nice toy!

    If you want a feel for the price range on these Conversion Units they get listed on a regular basis on eBay.
    The used condition is a minus, but the box condition is good. Its definitely in the $500 price range.
