why so much allure over the Horsey gun? I know why the Colt AR15 is revered. And the first 1911 I ever fired was a Colt National Match Gold Cup and it had a beautiful trigger but I was told it had been worked over to have that kinda trigger. I been reading that the Series 80 has an internal safety that prevents the gun firing if it is dropped but this complicates the gun and has made the trigger more difficult to tune. I myself don't plan on tuning any 1911 triggers. I will shoot them stock unless they break then I might send it somewhere but...that is down the road. Reading over my very first thread in this forum and somebody said I should get a Colt Commander in 9mm. I was looking at one on gunbroker just now and it looks pretty plain jane for a thousand bucks. Is it really worth that kinda coin? It's NIB. http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=283598494 I've been wanting a 9mm 1911. Pretty badly. For good reasons. But I was gonna go with the Spartan 9mm because it already has everythang I want but this Colt is appealing in a way I cain't explain. It looks like a workhorse. I like the lines and look...I mean granted any GI looking Commander has the same lines but this Colt looks really nice in the pics...I wonder if it's blued or parkerized? I can email the seller.. If I bought this...would the retain it's value if I kept it in good shooting shape...I would shoot the heck outta it fo sureness but... Any reason to avoid the Series 80? Ahhh I just seen buy it now is $1250! I could still do that much but is the Colt name really worth that much today? I hope it's all American made if I lay down that kind of cash. I could buy a really nice AR with that kind of money but I kinda want another 1911. Haven't shot the AR since I got my Filippino 1911. Just wondering what y'all would say... Wanna kill these ads?
