    It also helps that I gave him 200 rounds of 5.56 out of my stash the other day since he couldn't find any anywhere. :)

    So excited guys to own such an old firearm, nonetheless, a Colt. By the time I give it to my son, it'll be about 106 years old!

    The main thing is that you seem to really like this pistol (so do I). That's what it's all about. I've got an old S&W revolver and wouldn't trade it for anything since it is identical to the one my dad carried for 21 years. Some guns just ring your bell and you should have it for that reason alone. Don't worry about the value, it will appreciate but would you sell it anyway? Probably not. Nice deal, nice gun.

    Amen, brother. There's no way in hell I'd sell this gun. I'm buying it for two very important reasons..

    1) It just rang my bell,
    2) It'll be about 106 years old when I give it to my son.

    I'm mainly buying it as something to leave him/gift him when he turns into a man. I'd like him to appreciate what true craftsmanship was once like.

    That would be a great gift, I cherish the guns my Dad left me.

    OOOooo...it is nice! Old stock certificates can be artistic treasures and a Colt stock certificate would be extra special.

    It's even nicer than this 113 year old prancing pony, found on a Colt Model 1909 that was produced in 1910. A pretty attractive rendition of the trademark itself.

    I love that proud prancing pony. I feel kinda feel bad about sidetracking a members COLT thread but, I was happy to see his .25 with the original pony grips.
