Default A couple of Colts and a “wanna be” Colt

I’m helping a relative sell a group of guns that she inherited from her father in 2000. They’re not gun people and after an incident by her husband who has dementia she wants them gone. I’ve sold 6 but have more than that to go. But they’re going to give me one for doing all the leg work, advertising, emails, meetups, etc. and I plan to purchase a couple more. He’s the three I plan on getting, a Colt Super 38, Colt New Frontier 45, and a WW1 Remington UMC. Sadly they didn’t realize a need for storage in a dry area and oil so most have some rust specks on them. I was able to get most looking better with some Kroil and a copper penny. Here’s the 3 I’m wanting.

I don't know what the other choices were, but those are prime picks in my book.

The second set are definite winners. I wouldn't refuse your first three choices, either.

I wish I could afford to buy them all. It made me feel better that the Luger was refinished. I have an all original 1916 Luger and didn’t really need a shooter to go along with it.

I would agree that the first 3 choices are the primo guns and hopefully you can get decent money for the other grouping and whatever else is in the collection. I see that you're in GA, how does it work to sell to another GA resident? Just asking out of curiosity as localities vary.

Just verify that they are a Georgia resident but I like to see their Concealed Carry Permit. That way I know for sure that they are legal.
