hey guys, I just returned from one of the gunshops I run around and saw a clean Colt 1991A1 FS matted finish and all-in-all looks like it has not been fired, breach look clean as well, no copper. They were asking 599$ + tax. What are these going for off the top of your headS?:)

That's a pretty good price for a Colt. Even a 1991.

Brand new blued steel 1991A1's are going for not much under $1K local to me. I can't fathom why, but they sell at that asking price. Used black oxide ORM's seem to start in the $500 closer to $600 range. And those are usually pretty used. They aren't worn out, but they aren't new either. But Colts are getting harder to find and more expensive when you can find them old, new, used, ORM, NRM, worn, or not.

If you're planning on modifications, I'd pass and look for a Series 70 Colt. I have a newer O1991 I bought to shoot the piss out of, and while trigger is good, it's not as good as my Springfield Mil-Spec (series 70) which is at 4 lbs.

I have Colts fairly new, and a few really, really, old models and have never had a problem. I heard people say that some of the new models aren't as well built, but to me it's the finish that doesn't compare to the old ones. Especially on blued finish guns.
