Alam,
I think for 9mm models, you don't have much choices for Colt (what are common are All American 2000, 1911 in 9mm, Colt LEP, don't know if there are still other model?!)
For me these are the top BEST!
1. Colt Gold Cup National Match pre-series 70
2. Colt Python 357
3. Colt Mustang Plus II

Colt only made 2 9mm's that weren't trash.
#1 is a 70 series 9mm 1911 that sells for about 8-900.00
#2 is a 80 series 1911 9mm that sells for 750-850.00 not much difference in price, but a big difference in quality.
The main difference by the book is the 80s has a firing pin safety and the 70s doesn't. The 70s is built to tighter tolerances and better steel.
In my opinion the best models that Colt made is..........
#1 80 series Delta Gold cup
#2 pre 70 series gold cup
#3 any pre 1980 python
#4 annaconda 44 mag 6 or 8"
#5 38 super pre 70 series
Alam..............Maybe you should be considering a 38 super rather than a 9mm. 38 super has alot of knock down power and is only out classed by a delta elite.

I have a Colt Combat Comander in 9mm and I just love it, what a joy to shoot. Of course I also have the same in 45ACP. Comanders are my favorite, they just seem to balance better.


#1: 70 series gold cup
#2: 1970's Python
#3: Diamondback .22
#4: Woodsmen Match Target

I guess that is 4 but my list could go on forever.

I saw there were many people are more interested in COLT Series 70.

From your experienced, can you please tell me about COLT in 38 Super (can also use the 9mm bullet)? Is it considered as a good gun; accurate, durable, / and does it have a Smoother trigger as the Series 70 in .45? Which do you recommend from this COLT 38 SUPER or Series 70 in .45; to be use for target shooting, Self Defence, etc..

Please explain more about the 38 SUPER COLT? Thank you.

I have a Colt Pocket Nine and really like it.
It has a 11-12 lb trigger pull (no accidental discharges) Hey it's a self defense pistol. The gun is obsolete now.
I read that maybe in 2004 they will reintroduce the Pocket Nine. I am thinking about getting another pistol for carry and put this away. (collectors item)

I've heard the older Colt .38 Supers really need an aftermarket barrel to get decent accuracy, something about the way the factory barrels headspace the rounds. Otherwise the .38 Super is pretty good.

For my favorites, I like the 4" Royal Blue, black sighted Python the best.

I have an '80's production blued Dick Special that is sweet.

And third would probably be the old National Match in .45, for sentimental reasons.

I would like to see a 4" Anaconda in 45LC.
