You got a great deal on that Colt. Probably $100 - $150 less than I've seen them in that condition... I've got a 7.5" Buntline in .22 lr (it's not a conversion model). It's 98-99% condition, with box and docs, and has the color case hardened frame. I really like the gun, but only shoot it occasionally.
Congrats to the OP, I think you did very well on the trade!
