I'm assuming this was used? I would have bought that in a heartbeat if I saw it around here. I've been looking for exactly that for a while now, a quality full sized full metal 9mm. Do you happen to know where this place is? Perhaps I can call them and have them ship it out.

Must say if I see one thats not a beater at that price I'd grab it. I have 1911's in .45, .22, and .38 Super. I still want one in 9m/m and .38 spl. wadcutter.

I have the Colt 70 series in 9mm, absolutely nothing wrong with it. Go back and get it.

All my other Colts are .45, but the 9mm is fun.

I have several people I could resell that pistol to for twice that! 9mm 1911s are great! you should really consider it!
E-Shock rounds are engineered to expend maximum energy into soft targets, turning the density mass into an expanding rotational cone of NyTrilium matrix particles, causing neurological collapse to the central nervous system.- Yeah I can do that.

That's a fun range gun man! Should have gotten it!

Passing that up at $225 wasn't the move I would have made.

I would have bought it in a heartbeat. Also it is not like it is the only 9mm 1911. Several companies make them

I can understand passing it up. If I was looking for a specific caliber I wouldn't buy a different one I didn't want or need.
