I have the opportunity to pick up a Colt Metropolitan MK III (38 spcl).

Looks to be a 6" bbl and a serial number that puts it at a 1972 model...it's blued.

Any idea or the worth?

Found a link where one was purchased for 300 back in Feb this year.

Those run between $225 and $350 depending on overall condition and if they have the original box/papers or related ephemera.

No box or papers, does come with a nice holster. Blueing still looks good. Action is stiff but I'm bringing it home to give it a good cleaning and check out prior to exchanging money. We've agreed to 200 at this point...

I have a Browning, Ruger and a few Smiths but no Colt in my collection.

Should be getting these grips today

Ordered from Hogue on Monday, and they should be here today. Consists of a MSH and grips with integral mag well. I first felt them on my Sig Scorpion and LOVE them Kills two birds and what not. Here's a pic of the new grips which I will install on Project Overly expensive RIA TAC, and another pic of the Scorp with them as stock.





I got the arched MSH version for the Tactical model since I love arched MSH's and the other difference is the new ones are more grey green than green camo like the stocks on the scorpion. Plus, the new ones are smooth, as smooth as G10 can be!
