    I just bought a used Colt MK IV series 80 "Officers" model in .45 ACP .

    It's all nickle and for a 25 year old gun is in great shape.

    It has wooden grips and someone added a ambi safety (which I need) to it.

    We took it completely apart in the store & wiped it down (it was already cleaned) and lubed the slide & rails.

    I bought it for $510.

    It only has one mag & no box or papers.

    I can't wait to shoot it this weekend.

    :cool:

    Yes - we figured out it was made around 1985 = 25 years old. :D

    You're right someone took good care of this gun.

    :cool:

    Ha - I'm hoping to shoot it this weekend or soon.

    I shoot all of my guns.

    I take good care of them, but I don't have any "safe queens". :eek:

    Well here are the details of the gun.

    I went back to my shop and the gunsmith and I looked up all the details in the Gun Bible.

    My new Colt Officers Model 1911 in .45 Cal.was made in 1985.

    The finish is a Satin Nickel finish

    It has Millett Series 100 Custom Combat Low-Profile Sights installed.

    It has a Videcki Custom Trigger installed - it's a 3 hole trigger w/ over travel screw .

    We can't tell what brand Ambidextrous safety is installed .. the safety's finish is either chrome or shiny Nickel.

    I took it to the range and put a quick 100 rounds through it.

    The gun shoots better than I do.

    I'm a lefty so other than a couple of fliers - I'm consistently stabbing at the trigger making me shoot just a tad low and right.

    For my age - that's good enough

    Man i like this gun.
