Colt Mk IV Series 80 Gov. 380 in SS

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all well.

I've agreed to buy a Colt Mk IV Series 80 Government 380 in stainless steel. I'm happy with the $400 asking price. No box and only one mag.

Does anyone have any reason not to make it my everyday carry?

I appreciate everyone's input.

Have a great week,

Guy in SC

I have one in blue I carries several years in the 90s.
Just be certain it is reliable with the ammo you intend to use for SD. They can be picky.
I recommend only buying Genuine Colt mags or quality mags. No Promag crap.

I have a blue Gov't Model .380.
It has some oddities and is magazine sensitive. It is my IDPA BUG but I carry plastic or a bigger Colt.

Mine have always been reliable with quality ammo. All my magazines are Colt. Very easy to shoot accurately with.

I saw one today at the LGS. Very appealing I can certainly see why you are considering it for EDC. By the way the asking price was nearly 200 more than what you are paying.
