At 98% the book puts it at $1050 + 10% or $1,155 and the book is always conservative. IMHO, I think a 98% satin nickel Combat Commander could bring $1,500 easy with the right buyer. Your gun is a very desirable 32 year old gun to many of us Colt's aficionados!

Case in point, I have been looking for your gun for years! (Just ask any veteran FTF member what canebrake has been looking for; a Series 70 steel Combat Commander.) I could not find one in a condition anywhere near as kool as yours! I settled for a $1,300 Wiley Clapp Commander rubbed-on by Talo and put an additional $300 in it to make it mine.

Like I said;

** mad envy **

Kudos to you PSG and I hope some day to be able to shoot your Commander!

PM me if you ever get to Ft. Lauderdale. (make it fast, I may need a seeing-eye-dog to shoot it! )

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!

Default Nickel Finish Combat Commader

I have a Satin Finish Series 70 Combat Commander with a serial number 70SC74---. It has some wear on the finish from being in the holster for many years, less than a box of45 ACP ever fired through it. I was wondring what it might be worth. Unemployed, could use the $$$

PSG, very good looking Commander! i too am envious of you. i'll even outbid Cane and RJG and go $15!

seriously, nice pistol and i doubt that you overpaid for it at the price you gave. i think it will give you many years of enjoyment and only increase in value.

I'll give you $900 sight unseen for it if it's a true Combat Commander. (all steel)

No Colt Commander 70 Series. The 70 Series 1911 pistols had finger bushings. The Commanders with 70 sieral numbers had solid bushings.
