    Opportunity to get a Colt 1911 for $750±

    Should I jump on it? It's used, but I know that they don't sell the Colt 1911s to the general public anymore and I'm wondering if this sounds like a reasonable deal. Are there any problem areas of these guns that I should inspect before buying besides the bore, slide, firing pin, and hammer action?


    Thanks in advance for any advice you can send my way!

    Colt still sells to the general public, they just have two separate sites for the LEO/Military, and civilian markets.

    www.colt.com/ LEO website

    www.coltsmfg.com Comercial colt

    The price is fair depending on the model, the age, caliber, and the condition. You need to know is it a series 70, series 80 (sometimes marked model 1991), or pre 70 series gun. If its a pre 70 series, is it pre or post ww2? If its a 70 series, does it still have the collet spring bushing, or has it been replaced by a solid bushing? I generally see excellent condition post ww2 1911 colts in the 500-1100 dollar range depending on the these factors.

    The Italians have a saying. "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." And although they've never won a war or mass-produced a decent car, in this area they are correct.

    Just depends on which Colt 1911 and what condition its' in.

    EDIT - Yeah whatever Adler said.
