I just came across a COLT Special 32-20 W.C.F. w/pearl handle.

This is beautiful and I have no intention of selling it. But what would you guys value it?

Are you talking about a Colt single action or double action revolver ?

Huge, huge difference in value with any generation standard single action Colt being worth more than a standard double action Colt.

But, the devil is ALWAYS in the details with old Colts.
If a single action, which generation, is it original, cosmetic condition, mechanical, bore, etc for variables.
Much the same applies for double actions, although I don't think they chambered more than one or two models of double actions in 32 W.C.F.

Actually, DA .32-20s were pretty common before WWII. The Army Special and Police Positive were both chambered for it and examples of those two are not rare. Value would range from a low of $0 to a high of $400-600, depending on may variables.

I have both an Army Special and Police Positive in .32-20. I think both were made in the 1920's. Bluing is 85%+ and the action is tight on both with the black rubber grips. I paid $235 for the PP and $400 for the Army Special.

The Army Special was off of Gunbroker about 2 years ago, the PP was out of a gunshop about 1 year ago.
