    Sweet gun. I have really enjoyed mine. These pictures don't do justice to the beautiful blue finish Colt is putting on these guns.

    I have a Series 70 (1980) of my own.

    It is one of my safe queens. It is in pristine condition. It looks like it has never been shot. The only reason I do not buy a new one is because I have this one. The new ones are really beautiful pieces.

    Very nice! Congrats.

    My stainless likes to scratch easily. Blue stays in the safe except for time to fondle:cool:

    I have a 1911 WWI Replica (O1911). It is beautiful and NOT a safe queen. I bought it to shoot it and it is beyond awesome. It was in the serial number group that had to be sent back to Colt for their recall. I did that. While it was at the factory, I had them send it to the custom shop and work on the trigger (even tho it was already really good). Now the trigger is great.

    I'm a huge supporter of collectors, but I bought mine to shoot and it shoots like a dream.

    (now if I could just see the sights, but I think those days are over.) :cool:

    edit:
    It's also a great carry gun. Don't need to see the sights for self defense purposes. It knows where to point on its own.

    Got a S70 repro in the summer last year. More than pleased with it. Initially it was going to just be a safe queen, but I like it so much I'm going to do some very subtle tweaks to it and add it to the rotation of my carry guns.

    This thing is so accurate that I’m thinking of sending it back to Colt Custom to get some upgrades to make it hardball bullseye shooter. Adjustable sights trigger job and possibly lower ejection port. This is a range gun for me so definitely Adj sights so I can shoot 25 and 50 yards.

    yeah they are nice guns. I have a s70 combat commander that was my uncles when was alive. Shoots good and has sentimental value.
