    Hey guys,
    I am helping a friend out and buying a colt 80's series 9mm single stack for $475. I want to know if you think it is a good deal. I have seen pictures of the gun and looks in good condition. Has 2 mags, but no box and paperwork. Will update with photos later today.

    A great price. I will buy any Colt in descent shape all day long for that price. Series 80 guns are just as good as any 70 series. I like 70s better but only for nostalgic purposes.

    This is a little frustrating. We couldn't meet up this weekend. I am starting to wonder if he will commit at all.

    Congrats! A pretty good deal IMO. Proof is in the performance, but I doubt you'll be one bit disappointed. If you don't like it; I think I could help you out and take it off your hands!! :D
