I normally don't come on here to ask these kinds of "should I buy this" questions but here I am undecided about a Colt series 70 I ran across at a LGS.
I have been lusting for a minty older series 70 GM Colt (as opposed to the reissued ones).
I saw one yesterday at the shop and had to have a look.
It is minty! It is priced at $749! It is .38 Super though....
If it was a .45 I'd already have it in my safe!
I don't really want to get into a new caliber (for me) and I've heard the older Colts had poor accuracy due to head spacing on the semi-rim....
The condition of the gun and price make me want to jump though.
Also would it be as easy as a bbl. swap (and new mags) to make this a 9mm???
thanks for your help!
