You bet they do..They did not make pre 80 series pistols in stainless, but lots of folks see the 70 series guns in the Colt Guard satin nickel finish and think they are stainless...not.....

Gunny6,

Your reply left me confused. Are they really stainless or merely mistaken for stainless?

TIA

The Mark IV Series 70 were available in nickel from the factory, not stainless. The Mark IV Series 80 were available in stainless.

I'm confused. You mean they only made the 80 Series in stainless? :eek:

I'm just kidding. I'm sure you meant that the only stainless 1911 models produced by Colt were Series 80 pistols. :lol:

Paten, check your grammar: "They only made the 80 Series in stainless" - that's true. That doesn't mean there weren't blue ones, too!
