Local sale has NIB Colt Govt...looking at the photo, it appears to be a XSE. He's asking $875 for it. I have a on again off again relationship with 1911's. The off again is usually due to reliability issues.

What I'm wanting to know if this is a good buy. If i don't like it, is it cheap enough to get my money out of it in trade?

I got about $1000ish and a 1911 bug right now. I would prefer a stainless ommander .Maybe something with STI stamped on it. But no one around here stocks 1911's other than cheaper models. I know its not high end but i was hoping for something a lil nicer and something that feeds hollow points.

I would say that's a very decent price on a NIB Colt Government XSE. The last few Colts that I have bought have been well built and very nicely finished. They have also been extremely reliable. Another nice feature with the full size Government model is that you can get a .22LR conversion kit so you can practice with it for a lot less money, provided of course that inexpensive rimfire ammo because available again sometime in the near future.

That's a dang good price for an XSE.

Mine has been 100% reliable.

STI Ranger II ended up following me home instead. Wow...never had anything other than Springfield or a Colt 1991....This seems much nicer. I'm gonna shoot it before i decide i don't like the plastic trigger.
