NEW Swenson Colt Combat Commander

Hello All

I was/am interested in opinions , I have a ORIGINAL Swenson Custom
FULL House ( Vent Rib etc ) Colt Combat Commander.
It is Brand new Never been fired Except By Mr Swenson when
he test fired it in the Mid 70's and its been stored ever since!!!!!!!!
Its was also Featured in the Centerfold Of The American Rifleman
in George Nonte's Last article on Custom 45's With the serial #
planely Visible.... Again its in Perfect Condition LNIB.
I am The ORIGINAL OWNER of the Piece and have NEVER FIRED it....
I even have the original Correspondence from Mr Swenson when he
sent it back to me. The Gun was NEVER fired by Me it was BRAND New
in the Colt Box and sent to him by me still in Box and oil coated from
I waited 3yrs for him to complete his work, and had many conversations
with him. Quite a Character believe me.
Anybody interested in taking a stab at what it may be worth NOW.
Also if you are all interested I may take pictures and post them here
if you all would enjoy that....
Let me know thanks for viewing this and hope to hear from some of you.

I'll give you a stab at what it's worth, but only after you post pics, the more, the merrier.

If anyone can give you a decent appraisal, Little John can. I got to know them a bit while I attended auctions, bidding on guns for a friends collection. They are expert and honest. At one auction I attended, they offered for sale a matched set of shotguns that had once belonged to Reichsmarshall of the Hunt, Herman Goering. Yes, THAT Goering. It was about 12 years ago, and if I remember correctly, they went to a telephone bidder for $40,000.

HE can get you top dollar for your very special gun. Plus he's in Southern Ca; Swenson country.

Swenson value

You may want to contact Wayne Novak - he worked at Swenson's shop and has a good idea of value on them.
