Franchi made two models for Colt, 1962-66, the Colt Standard Auto, & the Colt Custom Auto.

The Standard was exactly the same as a standard AL-48; and the Custom was exactly the same as a Deluxe/Hunter AL-48 (engraved game scenes on silver-polished receiver sides, better wood).

The values are also the same, condition-for-condition, with the Custom Auto worth about $100 more than the Standard Auto - up to $350/$450.
