I have an old Colt Series 70 I got a few months ago. The gun is in really good condition and I was planning on having it lightly customized.

I already have a Kimber Pro Carry customized by John Harrison and I have a Colt 1991A1 that's being customized by Don Williams that I get back next month.

I want to eventually get a Sig 220R and a Sig 225 (P6). I can't afford to buy any more guns for awhile since I just bought a BHP and am buying a Glock 17 next week.

Should I sell the Series 70 and use the money to buy the 220R and a P6 or should I keep the Series 70? What do you think?

Government, Combat Commander, Commander or Gold Cup?

don't sell anything. just save your money and buy another. that is what i do. :D

If you have no sentimental value for the Colt, I would sell it and finance something you would enjoy more.

Government, Combat Commander, Commander or Gold Cup?

It's a blued Government Model.

It's a blued Government Model.

If it is in good shape I would leave it stock, and keep it, they are only going up in value in California.

i like the sig 220 also, but i would rather keep the colt,as said by californio,its only going up in value

Keep it. That gun especially is a classic. It will go up in value. Also, you will probably regret selling it. A series 70 Colt is the original that all other 1911 clones are based on. If you don't like 1911s and sell it someone is gonna be a lucky buyer.

Actually, the 1911 is the original that all these 1911A1 clones (series 70 included) are based on. But I understand what yer sayin'.

Keep it and don't mess with it. Two years from now if you have to sell it, it's value will go up at least 30%. JMHO:)

Wait a minute, I just saw that you're in the bay area. Sell, sell, sell!!!!

Should I sell the Series 70 and use the money to buy the 220R and a P6 Wai

sigs are ugly as hell. keep the colt, it has some history behind it plus it's a very nice gun.

Just how much is a series 70 worth in Cali?;)

02-13-2007, 7:31 PM
...ahh i mean you should totally sell the colt, i'll give 300 for it LOL, j/k, i think you should do what ever feels right. i mean no matter what other people tell you, if it doesnt feels right, you're not going to do it.

02-13-2007, 7:33 PM
Keep 'em all! :D

Keep it

The Series 70 is a great gun and I can just about guarantee you will regret selling that gun later and it wil be very difficult to replace, once you decide you want one again.
Be patient, save up your money to but whatever you want and keep that Series 70

Toys that I don't play with anymore have to go to make room for new ones.

I do have a few items that I don't play with and I am only keeping because they have sentimental value (grandpa's guns). If I would have purchased them, they would be gone by now.

Selling things to finance others is OK in my book but I do understand why people don't sell there guns.

I would keep it .Original 70s are hard to find.

Keep it.... Colt serirs 70 is hard to come by U know what the other will sale for, check it out for Glock talk
.........save money to buy new gun better.

I'll take it! Oh...wait, you're not selling? :)

Actually, for a certain group of people, getting a out-of-state S70 is no problem. ;)

Honestly, unless you plan on keeping it for a while for "collector's" value (meaning, don't shoot it and just stuff it in the back of your safe), what's the point? There are re-edition Series 70's and there's nothing wrong with the current NRM Series 80's. If you're into collecting, you might as well buy the Colt re-edition M1911 and M1911A1's as well as picking up a few current production Series 70's and NRM Series 80's to sit on.
