    Well...I hear that the series 80 has a couple of plastic parts vs. the series 70. I'm sure we will hear about this in a moment !

    I have a series 80 gold cup and a standard series 80, they both function just fine. The series 80 does make it so that there are a few more things you have to take apart when you detail strip. I'm not sure on the price though. The colts are good guns though

    This question is right up his alley!
    It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.

    Can you get a picture?

    It's looks like a regular series 80, except the chamer and some other parts are jeweled, on the slide it does not say series 80, but "Classic Government" the blueing is darker than most production guns and is one of the non-listed guns that OD spoke of. Apparently it is pretty rare...or so the salesman told me(surprise, surprise)

    From your information the closest thing that I could come up with is a Special Combat Government that has a Royal Blue finish, bar dot night sights and ambidextrous safety, in the 24th Blue Book of Gun Values, 2003 published date. The top end value listed is $1125. I know this information is dated by three years and may not be the same gun you are looking at. This weapon described above was manufactured fron 1992 to 2000.
