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!!
