I just bought a blued Combat Commander in 45ACP for less than $375. The serial # shows it was made in 1980, but it isn't a Series 80. No collett bushing either(replaced?). Has the funny little nubby tail on the grip safety. The coloring on all of the small parts seems to be uniform. It's about 95% and very tight. I thought that it would be a nice base for a custom piece.
