    These are cool pistols but I'm not sure they are worth $2,000, the rail kind of ruins it for me as well.

    I like it, needs checkering but outside of that it looks great. Where are we getting the price info for these? are they already listed?

    I'll be willing to bet that despite the 2K price...

    They sell more units to civilians than the 4,000 slated to equip the Marines.

    I'd happily buy one if I had 2K to spare.

    I would..... aside from any perceived collector value, it's a well built practical 1911 that will supposedly be built in their custom shop.

    Can't you get either the equivalent or even better for a lesser price?

    Fill in the logo/lettering with some sort of compound that will appear to be metal, then use a dremel to grind "Colt" into the slide, paint it over, might be a bit hard to tell the difference then.

    Probably, but I won't be able to tell you till I handle one or see a price. Dan Wesson will probably be stiff competition I'm sure.

    I never underestimate the draw of the pony. Warranted or not, they sell.

    I wouldn't be so quick to call them crap, they failed under "phase 2" of testing.
    It would be interesting to know what "phase 2" entailed. Rumor is no lube and no spring change during test? I have a tough time believing that a majority of 1911 frame and slides would only last 12K rounds much less a colt. I've seen them go way past 50Ks personally. Heck, I'm probably approaching 10K on my LWT Colt frame built custom.

    Last I heard, there were only a few people who worked in Colt's Custom Shop, so if that's true, there's a gonna be a LOOONG wait, before they get the first 4000 out the door. Personally, I don't see what warrants this gun to spend ANY time in the CS. Is that where they paint them tan and install the grips? :dunno:I haven't even handled, much less shot one of these, but I'd be willing to bet that they won't be able to carry a DW Specialists's jock. And the Specialist isn't a "custom shop" gun. If someone wants to drop 2K on one of these, for the sake of owning a "military issued" 1911 that also happens to have the word Colt on the side of it, then knock yourself out and place an order. To each his own. But you couldn't sell me one for 1K. There's not a DAMN thing about them that I like. Not a rail fan. Not an ambi fan. Not a smooth front strap fan. And I'm not a desert tan paint job fan either. I am though, very glad to see the military ordering a 1911, of any kind, but sadly, it is not going to replace the M9 as the standard issue sidearm. And no, I am not a Beretta or an M9 fan. As a matter of fact, I own 5 Colt's.

    Older Colt pistols are good to go, but today's pistols have serious quality control issues.

    Once upon a time Colt produced a quality product.
    Those days are far behind us now.

    It's a shame that the original producer of 1911 pistols has sunk so low.

    Personally, the only colt 1911 I'm interested in owning is one from WWII. Now those are sexy, especially with their history and everything they went through during the war.
