I was at a Gander Mountain store today and in the case they
had a gun that said Colt Gov model. It was a matte blue and
had wood grips and it looked kind of like a Mil spec. The reason
this caught my attention was because it was only $479 brand
new. I didn't ask to see it because they were very busy. So
what do you think that was for that price? I never heard of a
Colt for as low as that. I appriciate your comments.

Could have been an old roll mark ("M1991A1 TM") '91, that was clearance priced.

Sometimes Gander gets a small quantity ofsomething like that in the pipeline, and prices it to turn over fast. I couldn't believe how little I paid for a Springfield Champion Loaded Series back in June. All goodies, including night sights. I believe the reason for the bargain was the flat finish, which was being discontinued on this model. Let's just say I got a couple Andy Jackson portraits , along with the pistol, when I handed the clerk five Benji Franklin pictures! If the gun you saw was indeed an old 1991 series, the friendly price on them "back in the day" was about $400, FWIW.

I just called Gander Mountain. The guy in the gun dept said it
is a series 80 Gov model. He said it is like the 1991 but that is
not stamped on it. He said it was a new gun. The price is $479.
Excellent buy IMO.

Is it still there????

If so, I'd beeline down there and bring it home. I can't imagine not buying a new Colt at that price.:scratch:

Thinking to oneself. HHHmmmmm.
"Let's see??? A red eye from Ca. with 20 minutes notice. $1000"
"New pistol $500" "Combined cost plus fake I.D.= $1520"

Internal debate concensus says.
He's safe from me in the morning.:biglaugh:

can ship it to you. Brian your not that far away. If you have
any Gander mountains near you maybe they have one or can
get this one sent to your store. :D If your interested give me
a E-mail and I will give you the stores phone number.
