Re: Colt series 70 model O
Series 70 is a better gun than a Series 80. That's my opinion, AND a whole buncha other people. So a 70 is gonna be at least a hundred more than an 80.
COLT adds at least 300 dollars to the price. That "100 year" rollstamp is gonna add another hundred or so. Stainless costs more too.
So take that 1300, take away the 3, for COLT, the hundred for 70, and the hundred for "100 years", and you're down to 800. Knock off another hundred for stainless and you're at 700.
Seven ain't too bad for a good 1911. It's more than one of the Filipino ones costs, but then they don't have union labor.
