    One last Colt Series 70 1911 Blued @ my local gun store...
    the thing is its been on display and handled alot by staff and customers for the last 4 months at least.

    The store wont take any money off the 899.00 price tag.

    The fit seems a little loose I would not call it a "rattle trap"...yet and the bushing seems the like its on tight and looks even..

    Anything else I should check for before buying or putting on layaway??
    maybe you guys could give me a list.

    THANKS!!

    They usually don't make it a week around here before they're gone. $899 is a pretty decent price.

    ensure the hammer stays put when you advance the slide. verify no 'idiot scratch' is present.
