pre-1950 but it is missing the slide stop(marked with a "2")---will not
work correctly with a regular 45 slide stop. The pits on the slide
really hurt the value.Does it have a "U" + a 3 digit number
on top of the slide in front of the rear site? Colt
conversion units and SM Aces are not target guns nor
did Colt ever SAY they were--they were meant to give the
feel of handling a regular 45 and allow practice with cheaoer
22LR ammo. Pete

It's all about condition, and I hate to say it, but yours isn't in very good condition due to the pitting. I'd say maybe $200, but that's just an estimate.
