Just put cash down on one and the only other price I found seemed quite high.

Its a blued series 70 with very little to no wear.

Any help appreciated.

$500-$700 depending on condition.





Do you mean in 9 mm? I ask because I have a Series '70 Combat Commander in .45

Do You? Look at it and tell me where you see it say Series 70.



From www.sightm1911.com

"The MKIV Series 70 Government Model Colt pistols were manufactured from 1970 to 1983 and have "70G" as a prefix in the serial numbers on the models made from 1970 to 1976. The models made from 1976 to 1980 have "G70" suffixes. Models made from 1979-1981 have "B70" suffixes and models made from 1981 to 1983 have "70B" prefixes. The Series 70 had, in addition to the Government model, a Series 70 Combat Commander, Series 70 Lightweight Commander, and Series 70 Combat Government. The Series 70 featured an accurizer barrel bushing for improved accuracy."

Just because it doesn't say "Series '70" on the slide doesn't mean it is not a Series '70. In my case the serial number starts with "70B".
