colt value, springfield for everyday use
I bought my 80 series national match gold cup at Gun show for 900.00 new, I hardly shoot it, colts dont go down in value. I also bought a springfield armory Range officer 1911 to shoot all the time I paid about 800.00 for it. If you want something for value then dont shoot it alot, so inother words have guns you collect, then guns you shoot. Its like a vintage old car you dont drive those things everyday samething with firearms.
