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