I was perusing the used counter at the LGS. I had originally gone in to look at shotguns, but can't walk past the 1911s without a quick look. I saw Colt and the Bomar sight and thought, that's odd, let me see that. I looked it over and other than needing a good cleaning, it looked pretty good. I bailed it out for $720 and cleaned it up. The trigger was atrociously gummy.

I'll try to get some pictures tomorrow. The serial number comes back as Custom Tactical Government from 1999.

Did I get a good deal?

Sounds like a solid deal as long as it’s unmolested. I’m relatively new to the 1911 & Colt game but my thought is any gun that fires is worth $100.
MOST Colts are worth $600 unless bubba & the Dremel’s got ahold of it
$700 for an all original Colt in great shape sounds like a deal.
Just keep in mind, the used market is really soft currently. Just look at some of the classified adds here.
Good luck & post some pics up for a better evaluation
