    Bought this NIB on 12-12-11. Best bone stock pistol I own! Super accurate and reliable as I have just over 1000 rounds through her without a single malfunction. Best money I ever spent. I bought a pair of original Series 70 grips to put on her. Here is a picture of her the day I brought her home. DSCN0602.JPG

    Have to say that I'm a Springfield fan, but there's something about a S70 Colt that just does it for me. Great lookin' pistol.

    Thanks everyone! I've been looking for an NIB S70 for the better part of a year after getting my colt 1991 in 2/2011 and my Springer in 6/2011. I felt like I won the lottery when the GS said he had one in stock. They usually have the SS version but I wanted the blued and man did I luck out!

    I love the original grips. It just immediately makes it looks like it's a few decades old. I like my modern-looking Guncrafter 1911, but aesthetically speaking the old-school Colts always get to me. :thumb:

    Yeah, I like everything about this Colt: reliability, accuracy, aesthetics, function, the fact that it will only increase in value, it is 100% made in the USA with only minimal MIM parts (mag release, mag catch lock and disconnector). This beast is my EDC/EP gun.
