I have a chance to buy one of these from an acquaintance. I comes with a holster and three mags. It has a blue finish and wooden Colt Gold Medallion grips. He is asking $400 for it. It appears to be about 95% or better condition, hardly used at all.

Is this a good deal? What does one of these usually go for?

Thanks!

i haven't looked at them lately so take this as just my .02 worth:

the price seems right if its nice and tight, the blueing is pretty much as new and it WORKS every time you pull the trigger.

the problem i have seen with any 1911 style - including the officers model - is folks like to tinker because parts are easy to install.

if its original, good to excellent condition, i'd say jump on it. but make him an offer of $375 to see if he'll budge.

you can pickup full sized, new 1911 style pistols for around the $400 mark. but the officers models are nice and convenient in size.

Well, I jumped on it. I got him to come down to $350 cause there are some scratches on the frame. Other than the scratches, the gun looks pretty good!



SGB, where can I get the stainless steel recoil spring plug ?
