    This is a rare firearm, a genuine Colt 1911 .45 ACP Government Series 70 still in its original plastic bag and coated with some kind of anti-corrosive grease (cosmoline?). It comes with all the original paperwork and one magazine.

    What is the asking price, plz.

    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    It's a large rollmark, I'd guess late 1970s.

    I still have mine. It was more accurate with those sights then after I got it back with Heinie's early version sights installed. More daylight for a faster sight picture but a little less slow fire accuracy. Now that my eyes have aged I like the new sights. It's been a fine firearm down through the years.

    Honestly, I think your real number is gonna be at about 1000.00 to 1150.00.... That's unless you place it on GunBroker and start a bidding war.....
