    That's a reproduction Series 70 Colt, and a much more recent manufacture. Not that it's a bad gun - just isn't what he THINKS it is. You can call Colt customer service in the morning to confirm.

    I think it is a fairly new one in 45ACP. I have a 2015 in 45ACP and under it a 2017 in 9mm.


    The 2015 in 45ACP in model number O5870A1 and serial number 71N01xxx. The 2017 in 9mm is model number O5872A1 and serial number 71N05xxx.
