    I was in my local Academy yesterday and saw that they have a Colt 1911 for $799. If I had the money, I would have snapped it up. Just wanted to let you guys know. It was a plain jane bare bones 1911, but it was a Colt.

    I bought one last year. It's an 80 series. I sent it to Colt for a dehorn, barrel and bushing fit, trigger job and frontstrap serrations. I added the Harrison short trigger, Ed Brown MSH, 10-8 NM rear sight and Novak gold bead front. Great shooter.
