I'm sure that's the pawnshop blue book. I've never seen one sell that cheap.

Are you happy with the purchase you made?

Rule #1, do not ask any forum to evaluate a purchase after the fact.

Rule #2, if curious see rule #1.

Enjoy your Colt Commander.

34th Edition just out. It ignores the political BS.

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!

Combat Commander Series 80 Blue Finish;
95% = 600$
98% = 700$
The Colt Commander is a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, and recoil-operated handgun based on the John M. Browning designed M1911. It was the first mass-produced pistol with an aluminium alloy frame and the first Colt pistol to be chambered in 9mm Parabellum.[1]

The pistol that would eventually be named the Colt Commander was Colt's Manufacturing Company's candidate in a U.S. government post-World War II trial to find a lighter replacement for the M1911 pistol that would be issued to officers. Requirements were issued in 1949 that the pistol had to be chambered for 9 mm Parabellum and could not exceed 7 inches in length or weigh more than 25 ounces.[2]

I don't deal with them but Bud's had a very nice used series 80 for $699.00.

I new one will set you back over a grand every time. A 9mm is much higher. I don't know if they are still making the aluminum frames or not.

I think that the .45 models wopuld hold up better with steel instead of the aluminum frame. But they were meant for military officers for constant carry. And the one drawback to the Colt .45 ACP is it's weight. But that is one of it's greatest strengths as well.

If I had to have a 9mm, I think it would be a KAHR or something along those lines for deep concealment.

Great Pistol..You can't beat the original and Colt was and still is the best in a 1911, Commander, Officers Model or Government.
I have several Colt Combat Commanders and they are truly incredible pistols..reliable, accurrate and perfect carry size.
Nice Commander...Enjoy! You bought the best, IMHO.

Im like you guys here, I had rather have a Colt than about any other 1911 based pistol. I bought that Citadel as a test bed and I was really surprised at the quality. I would not give up my Gov. model or my Combat Elite for anything!
