Bought a Colt MK IV series 80 "Officers" model
I just bought a used Colt MK IV series 80 "Officers" model in .45 ACP .
It's all nickle and for a 25 year old gun is in great shape.
It has wooden grips and someone added a ambi safety (which I need) to it.
We took it completely apart in the store & wiped it down (it was already cleaned) and lubed the slide & rails.
I bought it for $510.
It only has one mag & no box or papers.
I can't wait to shoot it this weekend.
25 years,.. huh..??
Nice to see when somebody takes good care of their stuff..
I'm not a big 1911 shooter, but I gotta say that gun looks nice..
Congrats and enjoy...
Yes - we figured out it was made around 1985 = 25 years old. :D
You're right someone took good care of this gun.
Well Don, you just gonna let it sit around another 25 years...or are ya gonna shoot it! :p
Congrats! Nice find. :D
Ha - I'm hoping to shoot it this weekend or soon.
I shoot all of my guns.
I take good care of them, but I don't have any "safe queens". :eek:
Nice looking Officer. When is the range report?
Well here are the details of the gun.
I went back to my shop and the gunsmith and I looked up all the details in the Gun Bible.
My new Colt Officers Model 1911 in .45 Cal.was made in 1985.
The finish is a Satin Nickel finish
It has Millett Series 100 Custom Combat Low-Profile Sights installed.
It has a Videcki Custom Trigger installed - it's a 3 hole trigger w/ over travel screw .
We can't tell what brand Ambidextrous safety is installed .. the safety's finish is either chrome or shiny Nickel.
I took it to the range and put a quick 100 rounds through it.
The gun shoots better than I do.
I'm a lefty so other than a couple of fliers - I'm consistently stabbing at the trigger making me shoot just a tad low and right.
For my age - that's good enough
Man i like this gun.
