Thats the "old style" rail, the newer ones have the fancier looking beveled rail. All the older Sydarms had that rail, not too sure how many exactly, but they aren't uncommon (for Sydarms at least, which are fairly sparse to begin with).

It is easy to replace the frame rail. The serial number will tell you what you need to know, although I do not know what the Cop model sydarms were, versus the production guns.

Another giveaway of the old models is the rear sight. None of the recently made versions that I have seen have the rear sight.

it's an original for sure. the body has obviously been polished, but everything else is legit for being an original.

just like agentSmith said, the rear sight blade is a dead give away.

i'm no sure what the original serial #'s ended at, but if it's in the 300's i'd put money on it being an original.

i own 4 original Sydarms and one serial is #00012, two are in the #100-170 range, and i'm thinking the fourth is in the high 270 range.

they are only worth what someone is willing to pay.

will it sell for $500? i doubt it, but who knows...

would i pay $500 for it? hell no.

i think a realistic price for this one is in the $300-$350 range tops. i've also seen very nice originals sell for far less than that.

There were a number of originals that came polished from AGD.

I didnt know the new ones didnt have sites.
