    Colt 9mm

    Hey, guys. I have a Colt Mark IV Series 80 9mm Luger.

    It was just recently finished with cerakote because the bluing before had been really scraped up.

    I bought it 10 years ago from a local dealer here in Dallas for $200.

    I'm trying to decide whether to keep it or not because it was my first pistol.

    However, I can't find many pistols for sale that are similar. Most of the ones I see are .45 caliber.

    Obviously I am no expert, but perhaps someone out there can help me evaluate what I could get for this should I choose to sell it.

    I've been interested in getting an FNS-9 or .40 and I basically want to know if my Colt is a must keep or not. I'm just the kind of guy who likes to know all his options before making a decision so any input would be appreciated.

    I called Colt and found out it was made in 1989.

    I would keep it, but if you don't want it I have an FnS 9mm I'll be happy to trade you for. Would like to see pics!

    You'll never have another "first" pistol again. Keep it.

    I wouldn't let go of it personally, but that's up to you. No idea on value, but it's a sweet gun and a good 1911 style 9mm.

    I've been able to play with someone else's Colt Government Model in 9mm and it was a joy to shoot. I'd be for keeping it.

    I'd much rather have it than the FNS. That Colt is a great single-stack 9mm. Couldn't do any better.

    Its non-original finish dents the value somewhat but it still ought to bring at least twice what you paid for it, if it's in first rate mechanical condition.

    as soon as you get rid of it you WILL want it back but it will be gone forever. i vote for keeping it until they can pry it .

    I had a SS colt delta E 10mm 15 yrears ago, I paid $450 for it at a pawn shop (used but very little use).. I traded it for an A bolt 22 mag(new).. Worst thing I ever did.. I have wished a 1000 times I still had it! I traded that 22mag later also, I wish I still had it.. I just quit trading and buy from now on..

    1001 now! Keep it!! Hide it!

    Re: Colt 9mm

    I vote keep it. It looks awesome! And it's 9mm which is what I would want my 1911 to be if I ever had one.

    Thanks for all the comments. I suspect I'll probably keep it. I just took it to the gun club today. I did purchase the FNH but also shot the Colt. If it's any indication, the first shot I took with the FNH was dead center from 15 feet away.

    However, anyone know the best place to get original Colt wood grip covers?

    Have you tried contacting colt? You never know what they have in their store rooms or they will know big collectors ect...

    You'd be insane to sell it! You will never have a first gun again. I had a 9x18 makarov that I bought when i was 18 and sold when I was 19, and I still regret it every time I think about it, and that colt is much nicer. Keep it and give to one or your kids when they get old enough. (If they aren't already)
