That's a "loaded" question. LOL. What kind of shape is it in? Have you called Colt or looked it up in Fjestad's? More info please...

Gonzo308. Once I had contact with a Colt Government Combat. It was blue, slide radiused,white outline rear sight, partrige style front, collet barrel and bushing and a serrated front strap on the frame. It was marked MkV series 80 with the firing pin safty. Fit was sloppy yet I was assured it would shoot. This one had a Brown safties-grip and thumb and a commander style hammer having unusual hooks and safty notch. Also, a flat MSH//serrated// had been added. Price was $600.00. Here anyone correct me if I am in error please. I belive that these guns were produced in the early to mid eighties. They were "transition" models. Some were S70's and some 80's.Very little that I have seen has been posted on these guns. Good luck. Teal Blue.
My combat government model will be arriving tomorrow via UPS. I also have one in the safe. Have been told that there were 1500 produced in the early 80's. Also told they were predecessor to the combat elite. Blue, high profile sights, serrated front strap, pacs, Videcki trigger,Steel MSH,spur hammer, rollmarked combat government model on right of slide and the usual series 80 MK IV on the left, FG s/n prefix.Best part of the one arriving tomorrow. $358.01, with a malfunctioning grip safety! Now that can't be too hard to fix. Compliments of Auction Arms
