Posted this on the wrong forum yesterday...

I need help determining the manufacture date of my blue Series 80 Government Model. Serial number is FG12xxx. Gun is deep blue with vertical cocking and Colt by Pachmayr rubber grips. Spur hammer.

Also, are there any good online sources for post Series 70 info? Seems like there isn't much info available on later guns. Thanks!

No, it's mid 80's production. I'm guessing between 1984-1986 going by the serial number. The grips have obviously been replaced. A good way to determine age is to look at the barrel and bushing. If the bushing is the spring finger type, it definitely pre-dates 1988.
