I picked up a Colt Lightning .22 that has had the barrel replaced with a J .Stevens Arms octagon barrel and I'm curious about when it was produced. The serial number on it is #75186 .

:( How ever, because of the barrel change, it has very little collectors value. Sad but true

Thanks guys!
I knew that the barrel change made it a non-collectible but if not for that I couldn't have afforded it. It's a neat looking gun in nice condition that will be fun to own and shoot. Thanks again.

I agree Jeffs58, I have a coiple of " incorrect guns ". Like you , even if I could afford the 100 per cent collectors grade I proable wouldn't shoot it, and I don't like guns I can't shoot.;)
