Seems like a high price for what appears to be a "parts gun". 

Are all of the firing pin safety parts still installed in the Series 80 frame?

Is the Series 70 slide the lightened type as in the Colt National Match ("pre-70's Series")?

Do you any 50-yard targets to illustrate accuracy?  

You list your classification as "Marksman".  Doesn't make one comfortable with you description of it being a real shooter.

That's got to be one of the top classless posts I've seen on this forum. Perhaps you should keep your comments to yourself as you appear to have no interest in his pistol nor do you have anything positive to say.

To quote Sylvester, Daffy, et al, "Sufferin Succotash".

Now that the pistol has been "sold", it is perhaps moot, but I didn't indicate that I wasn't interested.  

I prefer the heavy trigger of the National Match and the Gold Cup 70 and 80 Series.  Have more than of few of them. That is why the questions regarding the "parts".  Those triggers are extremely rare and if you could find one, it would require considerable modification to fit one in a different frame not designed for that trigger.

The 70 Series heavier uppers are not known for accuracy without some degree of work, including a better barrel along with a bushing other than the stock "finger/collet" type.  The lightened National Match and some 70 Series are more accurate.

Colt had quality control problems in the 1970's.  It has been said that to keep up with production levels, management was put on the production line in addition to the gunsmiths.  

The lightened slide of the National Match and some 70 Series tended to be better.

A Series 80 pistol without the proper firing pin safety components or proper replacement shims will tear up the area around the hammer and ruin the pistol.  There is very little metal in the Series 80 frame behind the plunger/replacement shim.

Test targets are the best indicator of accuracy.

Given all of the above, as well as the person posting the listing as having only had 3 posts, and the picture included providing no detail, the questions were certainly appropriate.

Next time you wish to provide similar comments regarding a post that you don't like, or want to jump in, please do so at a time other than when you either apparently either missed your nap or dosage.  That would make your respopnse "classy".

I hope the Admin steps in.  Both of his posts are inexcusable for this forum.

You really should know when to quit and take your own advice.  This type of behavior is not tolerated on this forum.   38Super!! if you don’t intend on purchasing, keep the comments to yourself.  You have been warned and this thread is archived by the abuse report system for reference by the full Admin team.

All apologies to the original poster for this.  Congrats on your sale.  Thread closed.

—Update-  38Super!! deleted his own account, that is why his posts say “Guest” now.  Too bad bullies talk all tough and then turn to snowflakes when they get called out.  He will probably sneak back in with a new acct. sooner or later.  Rolling Eyes
