That price might be a bit high. 9mm Colt's are hard to find and the price reflects it. If you really like this pistol, you could make a cash offer and see what happens. Keep in mind that Colt has some 9mm offerings in their lineup again. However, a Colt 9mm without the Series 80 firing pin safety, might not be in the works.
The appeal for me and a 9mm is the cost of shooting. 45 is just too expensive unless you're sure to get almost all of the brass back.
