1903 Colt Hammerless question

I see them in good condition for $800 - $900 on gun sales websites. I am I likely to find a better price in local gun shows or are these too rare?

What have you paid?

Condition and originality are everything.
An early high polish will go for $1500 or more in excellent condition, or $300-400 in fair condition.
The later ones will typically be in the range you mention.
I wouldn't expect them to be any cheaper if you could find one at a show.

The Type II is the hardest to find, it has the barrel bushing and shorter barrel.

Always take a good look at the bore as these tend to have pitted or worn barrels esp in the earlier ones.

I will mention that there are good deals out there if you know what you're looking at and are willing to dig... I found a nice Type III Hi Polish on GB for $500.
That is the exception rather than the rule though.
