i hit my local pawn shop and saw a older model colt officer sized series 80 1911 w/ hogue grips and florecent (non glowing) sights--firesights i think
its bluing shows some wear and the inside frame has some early signs of rusting/browning....but i think that she just needs to be cleaned
how reliable are the officer sized?
they were asking $489--i was thinking that i could offer $440 (or less...) out the door.....what do you think?
p.s.: this is perhapse a future carry weapon--small, compact and fairly priced.....
i did check out that series 80 full size, but got a kimber TLE (internal ext) for a heck of a price--thanks flashooter and EE!
gotta post pics of that one.....
but i realized that a more compact 1911 is in order and untill i can find either a commander sized one for a decent price, this officer seems to be the most viable at the moment....
you should, they look great!
