    Bought a New Gov't Model -

    I have been a 1911 fan for 35 years and have owned several Colt 1911's in .45ACP, but I bought them all used. Last week I was in my local gun shop and they had a new Series 80 Gov't model. It is tight, well finished, and accurate, and cost less than $800 out the door. I didn't know Colt was making quality 1911s in this price range. Cool!!

    That Colt 1911 model 80 is a fine weapon. I agree that you got a good deal on it too. It should be around as long as you are. Congrats!

    i guess i missquoted, i meant worthless.

    just funning TODDs post above and looking for a reason to show off my new pistola after hanging a few chads at the voting booth.

    i am curious how the OP is likeing his tho, i am happy i found one. colts dont hang in the stores very long. very few new/used etc ever come in, and then a day later they are gone. i think the gun store employees all draw straws after they take one in on trade. trying to find a used colt around here...is like hunting snipe. but...the one i got was also new...

    Colt makes a good gun. No question about it. I have yet to be disappointed with one that I have owned. I still have one and wont part with it for anything. I had a stainless Combat Commander that I still kick myself for getting rid of though it did free up some cash for a new Sig Sauer that I really like to shoot

    Heh..Can't help myself..Here's my Colt Officers...

    Believe it or not I found that Colt at a Flea Market. I was there to get a pair of Boots and an M65 jacket...There's a guy that has em there and I happened across it. There's a dealer that shows up there I'm told now and then. got it out the door for 525.00. I about ran out of there I was so jazzed after I go tit..heh

    Sounds like a good one to me. Colts are high. Some in my opinion are not worth it and you are paying for a name. but there are good deals out there now and then. Under 600 for a Colt is a pretty good deal. anyway. With the Colt 1911's you can always make improvements to it if wanted/needed and you can have a really nice gun on your hands. The last one I bought was a stainless commander NIB that cost me 700.00
