Hi all i am new to Colts and the Colt forum but not new to firearms. I have an opportunity to get my first colt 1911 it is a 70's series Govt. blued and in about 85-90% condition. The asking price is $950 and I do not know if this is worth this or not. I was told it was made in 1978 or 79. I know i can purchase newer Colts for less but this is very tempting. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
