Default New Combat Commander Colt 70 series

Picked up this Colt Combat Commander today on satin nickle, beautiful gun, not even an idiot mark. Anyone know much about these? Value ? I liked it and bought it, did not even research it. Thanks !

You did fine- Not a steal but no worries about a return on your investment if you decide to sell

The Series 70 Combat Commander in satin nickel is a scarce find! This finish brings a 10% premium on any condition 60% and above.

My old eyes are straining but if the S/N starts with 70SC72xxx its a 1979 build but if that number is 70SC77xxx it was made in 1980.

Either way you got an outstanding sample of the Commander and below book value if the gun appraises above 95%.

** mad envy **

Powersportgiant, want to make a quick $10? I'll even pay the shipping!

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!

Thanks Cane, I knew you would chime in ! Serial number is 77, so it's a 1980, this gun is 99% for sure, not a mark on it. I did not realize that the finish was so rare on these, glad to add it my collection !
