O1911C looking good

Price is Right!
Hard to beat this price unless you can find free shipping/no CC fees.

Good price. I just paid $740. plus shipping for my Series 70 Repro thinking that was a good buy as well. Then add tax and transfer and they get pretty high.

I've got a 01970A1CS that I paid $899 for. What's the difference between mine and yours?

I got to see a new Classic last weekend at a sorta local shop. Really nice. Tight, smooth, really nice finish......none of your typical Colt cosmetic boogers. I did not buy it, as much as I wanted to........I've bought two new guns in the last month or so. If it is still there towards the end of the month I might.

I did too... six months ago when the price was over $100 higher. Still happy with my purchase though.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why.

Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

An obvious price drop on the Repro's. If having purchased one early on you got a nicer looking pistol IMO- Otherwise the guns are the same accept what is seen on DSK's printout above.

Here's pictures of my 01970A1CS for reference:





I love the short trigger and arched, steel mainspring housing.
It wasn't ejecting properly, some brass to the head.
I tuned the extractor and now it's perfect.

Nice one imjb1911. I've always wanted one, but I can't bring myself to do it. The rollmark just totally kills it for me.

Remember that the original Series 70 went through two generations of rollmarks. Both said the same thing, but from 1970-1978 or so they were massive..... taking up almost the entire length of the slide:



From 1978 on they were reduced in size and looked a lot better.

Unless you live in Georgia, you shouldn't be paying any tax.

Many states collect sales tax on transfers. I know WA does. When you have a firearm transferred from out of state the FFL either needs to see the receipt w/purchase price or else has to charge tax based on fair market value.
