Subject line says it all -- I was in there last week (buying a minty S&W Highway Patrolman) and noticed they had a blued Series 70 reissue (http://www.coltsmfg.com/products-c5-q76-COLT_PISTOLS.aspx#) under glass.

This is not on the Roster, so they are not easy to come by. It's got the standard (non-Series 80) firing system and the original high-wall ejection port, with improved 3-dot sights.

IIRC the price was $1k.

I've seen two original 70 Series in a case down in SoCal - asking 1100. Both very nice.

Was this new/unfired?

Not a bad price considering.

I haven't had one of the new ones apart - does anybody known if the slide stop window is cut in the series 70 style - ie not the series 80 full cut out of the frane rails.

If it's a true series 70 frame, it would be a good candidate for a full custom job, imo.

Somebody is selling a orginal series 70 gold cup national match in the private sales section for 1300. NIB!!
