Colt Combat Commander Price




What would a Colt combat commander be worth? It is a 45. 70 series blue with considerable wear. Condition is about 95% or so. The trigger has been change to an aftermarket adjustable one.

Thanks for your help

Value and cost depend on what part of the country you live in. What is considered a deal in one state would be over priced in another. I just purchased this 70 series combat commander for $490. No gunsmithing, it's tight, no pits, and has great potential as a build up project, internally there is very little wear.

Hope this helps.

I'm wondering if 95% and "considerable wear" really dont go together?

Thanks for the info

I just gave you the description as given to me. You can tell that it has some wear but has been taken care of.

Rdinak, that looks like a real nice Commander. I'd say that the price was a steal too. I just bought a mid-1980s vintage Series 80 Commander, unfired, in about 99% condition, for $625. I've been looking for such a pistol for some time, and therefore didn't quibble about the price. I think it was fair, all things considered.

That looks like the base Wilson trigger and an aftermarket grip safey on that Combat Commander. It's been worked on. As long as whoever worked on it didn't cut away the frame on the feed ramp, it doesn't look like anything that couldn't be fixed - or improved on. (I hate those ugly "drop-in" grip safeties.)

I picked up a blue series 70 Combat*Commander about six months ago in Colorado for $500. While the bluing had been worn off a few edges, there weren't any severe scratches or rust. It just went through a lot of time at the smith getting all spiffed-up and that $500 now seems like a small amount
