I have been wanting a Colt 1911 series 70. I came accross a decent deal on a Colt Gunsite Pistol (series 70) so I am buying it tonight. I probably will not be able to shoot it until next weekend, but I will have it. It is a the blued carbon steel version.

Now I have to decide if I ever want to IWB it or not... I usually carry a XD9SC.

some details about the Colt Gunsite...

The Colt Gunsite model is truly a shooter's firearm. Much time and effort have been spent in developing every detail of this fine, innovative firearm. The joint effort, led by Colt's LtGen William M. Keys USMC (Ret) and Gunsite's Owen Buz Mills and Col. Bob Young USMC(Ret), brings to market another contribution to Colt's legacy of producing 1911 series handguns.
