Is the Colt 01991 the nicest GI model 1911?



I'm in the market for a GI model 1911. Can anyone speak to this particular model? Looks like it can be had for $900, which is higher than the Springfield Mil Spec?

I think MSRP is around 900, you can probably find that for around 770-800 if you look

Yes and no....

The purchase was conducted in Bastrop.

Our Safety Rep at work was selling it and I asked how much and he said $500. I had control my excitement so he wouldn't knock the price up.

He was either a drug addict or he wasn't the original owner.

Not stolen. I had a cop friend run the serial number.

You gave him the wrong number or it was never reported stolen in the first place.

For $500 that thing is hotter than a $2 pistol :bowsheadforgeorge:

I had one exactly like that one.
Stolen from me six years ago.
It was a very fine pistol.

Either the guy is loaded and doesn't care about money, or that pistol was involved in something.
