Colt Series 80 Question
 
I am reading that the Colt series 80 is not a 1911 per se`, but a 1991A1 is this true? Does this make it a better or worse firearm? Indifferent perhaps? What approximate value is this weapon?

Ultimately, I am making a trade for one, but it will cost me my beloved Wynona. I don't mind a good trade since 1911s fit better in my hand, but I also don't want to get azz raped either...BTW, for those who don't know, Wynona is a SIG P220 .45 ACP

The 1911 and A1 differ in the trigger, safety and main spring housing.

The series 70 introduced the "finger bushing" for better accuracy.

The series 80 gave us the passive firing pin block.

The 1991 is a series 80 1911A1. All 1991's are series 80 but not all series 80's are 1991's. There are series 80 Gold Cups, Delta's, Commanders, Officer's Models and Defenders

Thanks for the info. This is a commander, if that makes any difference.

Hi everyone. I just bought a Colt a few days ago, model number 01091. Are there any downsides to this gun? Does anybody else use this same model?

It's a Colt 1991A1 Govt Model, .45ACP, Stainless Steel, spur hammer, series 80 action, blade sights, solid long trigger, A1 grip safety and a flat MSH.

A great modern production of the M1911A1. You'll love it!

I'm not a fan of the blade sights, but other than that, it look like a nice piece.

Making a break for the dark side Ineff?

Don't get me wrong, I love my SIG, and I'm good with with it... but it's slightly large on the grip and I keep thinking about how nice the Springfield 1911 felt in my hands. I'm just too big a gun snob to own (or be seen with) a Springfield. I want the best.
