OK, so it was just last month that I bought my first 1911. I really didn't know what I was missing. Anyways, a friend who is an LEO has a safe queen that he wants to sell to make room for a new safe queen. I took a lot of time when buying my first weapon to learn about SA's nomenclature and the different models. I have to act a little quicker on this one so I am looking for some help deciphering what kind of gun I am really getting.
Colt: Yeah I know Colt
Mark IV: What is the Mark IV line?
Series 80: What is the difference between the different Series
Govt Model: I assume that means its a 5 inch or is there something else the "Govt Model" means
Its in the 45acp caliber and the guy wants $500 for it. IS that a good price, a fair price or a bit on the high side?
