    Colt Officers series 80 - Anyone like this gun?

    I just shot an Officers, steel version, matte finish .45 acp and while it is heavy, the heaviness helped with follow up shots. The gun has had some nice refinements (trijicon, Kings match bushing, McCormick trigger, beveled mag well, lowered ejection port. trigger job) and the owner is asking $450. Is this the money on the gun? I have been shooting Glocks - hard not to think about a G30 given the capacity/weight comparison.

    That is a good deal for a fine pistol. Buy it.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    Buy it before he changes his mind or figures out what he has.

    Were I offered that pistol for $450, I would sell a kidney if that was the only way I could buy it.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    I was told mine was a POS, but it has been flawless. I think an OACP is worth $450 scrap value.

    I have the exact same officers and I had to pay to have all those bells and whistles done to mine, sounds like you are good to go.
    I would get it now before he changes his mind or we find him first.
