    Colt Series 80 1911 Gov't Model - $400

    About 20 years ago, I bought a brand new Colt 1911 (don't remember how much though), did a bunch of mods to it. Then got into reloading, bought a Dillon Square Deal, shot a crap load of .45, then sold it or traded to my friend.

    I just got a call from him saying that the guy he sold it to for $400 about 10 years ago, sold it back to him for the same amount.

    I remember I had the frame chromed, it had ambi safety, new grip safety (as I kept getting the web of my hand bit). I put a bunch of lead 200 gr SWC through that gun.

    That sure was a great first gun. I hope the gun wasn't butchered along the way.
    Bitter and clinging to my guns and my religion.

    I don't think so.

    If I wanted a 1911, I think there are far better ones on the market today then when I bought the Colt.

    Yeah, that is pretty cheap.

    Apparently, my friend only sells his guns to other friends with the stipulation that when they want to sell it at some point, he gets first dibs at the same price.
