    I picked up a Series 70 Satin Nickel Government Model at the gunshow yesterday, actual dollars invested in this gun is $350.00, I did some horse tradeing, no cash involved, the seller had it marked for $700.00, my bud with Harris Co. Sheriffs office wants to trade me a NIB Colt 1991A1 NIB even Steven, should I trade or not? The one I picked up is 95%, cleaned up really well. I note the 1991A1's are going for $500.00. Realistly what's mine worth, should I ask for some boot$$$$$$

    Steve, My $.02 worth. I would keep the Series 70. I think they are better than the 1991. I'm not a nickel finish fan, but I still like the Series 70 better.

    Do not trade. Series 70 Colts are very collectible and worth far more than a 1991. I do not care for Nickel either but hey its still a series 70 Colt, There not making any more!!!!

    Do what you want to do BlackGun... I too would prefer the mdl.70... BUT... what are your intentions? I think that would have a lot to do with your decission making. IMHO

    Rick. The gun was just a small part of my joy of haveing the privilege as an American to get out and enjoy a gunshow, make a trade, have something new to play with. My joy is also being able to share with my loved ones, my friends. My freinds mean more to me than real possessions, so when asked to trade, I wanted to please my friend but not make a foolish err in the mean time. So, I heed the advise of this, my family and will keep the 70's series. Again, I thank everyone for their opinion. I value and cherish each and everyone who thought enough of me to respond.
