    New 1911 questions

    Hello all, I just purchased a used 1911 series 80 government mkiv in stainless steel SN SS042XX. It came with both wood and pachmayr rubber grips and also 2 mags no box. Can someone help me with manufacture date and tell me if I paid too much? I paid 450 OTD pictures added

    I can't see the pistol from here, but that price sounds like a bargain for any Colt O frame...........
    Even if it badly needs a re-finish, its easy with a SS gun..............

    Sounds to me like you did fine.

    Welcome to the Forum...........

    Unless it has a major problem then that is a great price. Colt has an online database of many of their serial numbers and a toll free number to call if your pistol is not in the database.

    If the slide is Colt ? If the receiver is Colt ? If the barrel is Colt ? If none of the three got dragged behind a moving vehicle? We can stop right there and say YES; you got 450 dollars worth.
    If you got any parts and pieces beyond that, then you still owe some more money !

    “It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carry the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life, or death ---- it shall be life.” - Ten Bears - “The Outlaw Josey Wales”
