I am a huge Colt fan. But a retro Model 70 for 700+ wholesale....who are they kidding?
I don't care who's name is on the gun if they can't come up to Kimber specs and in the same price range they loose.
Kimber and Springfield are $100 less and gives a whole lot more IMO.
The Colt's aren't as tight slide to frame as the Kimber, but they are a lot smoother. The barrel's are very well fit also. The 1970a1 is built to the same specs as the 1991.On 2002-02-09 09:13, missionag85 wrote:
Does anyone have any feedback on the quality of the limited run Series 70 (S70)? Is it the same sloppy fit/finish etc. IMO they were producing in the later years just before S80 production? I'm willing to spend the additional $$$ for a NIB S70 if it's of the same quality that Colt is currently offering (minus the Schwartz safety).
Me too, but I can chaulk that up to being 28 I think. Since I've been into guns Colt's have been S80. The S2 is something new and different.On 2002-02-10 09:47, missionag85 wrote:
Besides, I'd take the S80 parts over the Series 2 Kimber parts any time.
