Colt govt. 70 series. I believe.
Would really appreciate some help, serial # appears to start with 74
Is she a good value? How much would U boys say she's worth?
Thanks a bunch

I'm guessing here, been a long time since I shopped for a 1911. This looks like a nice one, WAG would be $900 to $1100. Check gunbroker for completed auctions to see what's being paid on the internet.

The sights were changed and of course the grips.
I would not go as high as 900.00. I would think 7-800.00.

Yikes, mother of all idiot scratches.. Appears someone attempted to fix some of it (?) along with a lot of wear on the rear but none on the front.. Idont know If its the pics or if it is that splotchy on the muzzle. If this gun is online and your not able to inspect it I wouldn't offer much

How much do you think it's worth and how much would you be willing to pay OP?

I Found out was made in 1978. She has some holster wear and a huge idiot scratch. I would say she's worth $700

The sights are Millett and were most popular in mid 80s to early 90s
1978 is about right for the pistol and the grips are aftermarket.
$700 is a good call, I would try for $600 if you can, the Millett front can only be replaced with another Millett as they use a two hole staking and the top of the slide should have been milled flat
