Just a WAG based on condition, the first gun worth probably about 1k. 1918 was a big year, something like 350k guns made and quality of fit during the war years wasn't great.

The 2nd gun, 1943 is a more desirable year but it is in such rough shape with the very crude stippling I would realistically place value around $700 tops.

That being said, you may be able to get more if you tried to sell them on an auction site, its all about finding the right buyer and having very good pictures.

On this website, what is going to excite buyers is either documentation from the builder (a reputable bullseye smith) or a 50yd test target. Hope that answers your questions.

SmokinNJoking is correct on pricing, with the limited info, re the 1918

the historical info, (with respect to SNJ) i9s meaning less, once the frames were stippled, all the collectible crowd just walks by, and the $$ is not there, 

you would be doing good to get $700 for the Colt with the welded slide, if you are looking to sell, install the extra slide and the sale will go faster, and maybe for the $700 guestimate


any idea who made the barrels?

1918 - Maybe $600 but I'd pass due to the stippling (as lyman1903 indicated), I can find better bullseye guns for $1K and the stippling negates any collector value.

1943 - $500-600 MAX due to condition, even with the extra slide.

Unfortunately neither gun would be a good platform for a bullseye build.

If either gun can hold a 2" group @ 50yards add $300.

If you can find out who did the work, it might be a plus. If you can get someone to shoot 10 shots at 50 yds., on a machine rest and get a 10 ring sized group, it would be worth the effort and and expense. I personally think that a 2" group would be asking a lot from the majority of used bullseye pistols. I do think, that if they are accurate and reliable, they'd make a great starter pistol for a newbie, at the right price. That is a pretty bad (sloppy) weld job. I had a  1911 stainless steel slide welded and I couldn't tell, when it was done. That extra slide looks pretty rough, too. $600 for no. 1 and $500 for no. 2 or a little more might be a good estimate.

Knowing who the Gunsmith was who did the work makes a big difference, I have seen Bob Chow guns sell for a premium in CA.  The test target is a great idea as well.  Good luck
