Gun Safe Find- Colt Ace II .22 Conversion Slide


So I was looking for something or another and stumbled into a cloth wrapped package in the corner of the gun safe. It was a .22 conversion kit for the .45. I really didn't know exactly what I had. It was given to me and was promptly put away then forgotten. I was not sure exactly what it was worth so I hopped onto the internet and did some looking. It turns out that these Colt conversion slides/ kits are fairly rare and sought after. It was pleasant to find out that the thing is worth some dough.

As I do not have a .45 any more the conversion kit is unnecessary so I want to sell the thing. My tentative price for this conversion kit is $300 unless I find out some new information. (If I am way off on value either way here please let me know.) The proceeds will finish of the new M4 fund if need be or ideally go for a little hide out pistol or a .22 conversion kit for an AR.If by chance anybody is interested shoot me an email @ theotherryan@yahoo.com.

That was today's cool find while going through my stuff. Hopefully I have a few more cool expensive things waiting around to find in the near future. Not holding my breath but selling off stuff I do not need is probably going to fund a few projects in the near future.

I think I'd hold out for a little more money, a Colt .45 buyer I think would be anxious to have one. But if it was given to you and you have nothing in it, $300 sounds good. Modern conversion kits go for more though - whats the brand ?

Durn, missed the label at top - duh! An original Colt - mo money for sure, I'd start at $500 if its in good condition.

Man, pictures would be awesome. Early .22 kits from colt were serial numbered until colt realized they didnt need to be. $300 might be a bit low, I suggest you trot over to Gunbroker and dig around.

Commander Zero, Will do.

Commander Zero, I will see if I can get better pictures up this weekend.

Mine doesn't look to be early enough to have a particularly high collector value.

I think the pricing of Colt Guns are really reasonable as compare to the other brands.

Guns, Reasonable is a relative term. With Colt however you are paying a premium for the name.
