Default 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 nickel 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.

@ Byrdguy

Yes it has custom sights and trigger as well.

The trigger is smooth as silk.

Someone mentioned that they thought that the grips were after market too.

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.
