Found my .380 Today!! Its been a long road with many obstacles (45 Colts) but I finally picked up
a .380 Im happy with and seems to be Reliable based on what ive read..
Its a 1989 Colt Govt /Series 80 in .380Cal
Picked it up on a TRADE, I gave up a Kimber Custom Target II 45ACP with some Custom parts.
The Kimber was nice but I already have 4 1911's which 3 are Colts . Never liked the Nitron finish on the Kimbers either.
This is what I traded minus the grips & holster (those Im keeping): I believe it was a good trade because both parties were happy
with their new pistols. And these 380 Govt.'s aren't as common as the Mustangs, first one Ive seen in person.
What do you guys think? Any .380 fans out there ? and would you have made the trade ??
The lighting in the shop was bad so it looks like the blueing is wasted but it looks better than it photographs . Just dirty as heck..
Ill try to get a better picture of the front site in the sun light tomorrow. The grips were purchased in 1994. The grips that were installed when I purchased were black plastic with the silver Colt Logo, I assume those are the originals. Still have them,just liked the ivory!
PS....The sites were just relamped this year by trijicon.
