Hi all,

I own a nickel '70's era Colt Combat Commander. It is basically bone stock and in pretty good shape.

I like it but I don't love it. The sights suck and "beavertail" cuts the hell out of ya.

I've been considering trading it for a Glock 20 or 21. I have tons of small CCW style pistols and have been wanting something full-size for winter carry. I KNOW that I ought to kep it and save for the Glock, but I really don't have the resources to maintain any "safe queens" right now. Being a single breadwinner and having a wife and two kids will do that to a man.

Am I nuts? Whats the going trade for a stock '70's era Colt Combat Commander?

BTW, this isn't an offer. I'm just curious as to you guys reaction to the idea.

If you don't love it, try something new. That's what I've always done.

If you do decide to do this, let me know, Green G20 here.

I don't think you're crazy, life is short--get what makes you happy, try new things.
You were pretty vague on the condition, but realize that Colts, especially series 70's command a premium most of the time. Whether its justified I will not comment. Remember to that variables like original box and papers mean alot to some people. I would think you could get a new Glock 20 or 21 plus a few bucks or a few accessories for it.
My 2 cents

That's the best carry and duty pistol of all time. Update it with new sights and an extended grip safety and you will be happy today and tomorrow.

I had the same gun. If I could have back two of the guns that I had in the past it would be my nickel Combat Commander. And my Colt Commando Special. But am very happy and would not trade the G17, and G19 for them.

I traded a series 70 (blued) Commander for a Glock 21 and couldn't be happier Simple reliable fast and green. I would sell the Colt out right as there are people who will payu a primium for it.
