Default 80's series

Hey guys,
I am helping a friend out and buying a colt 80's series 9mm single stack for $475. I want to know if you think it is a good deal. I have seen pictures of the gun and looks in good condition. Has 2 mags, but no box and paperwork. Will update with photos later today.

A great price. I will buy any Colt in descent shape all day long for that price. Series 80 guns are just as good as any 70 series. I like 70s better but only for nostalgic purposes.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

This is a little frustrating. We couldn't meet up this weekend. I am starting to wonder if he will commit at all.
