    I did, which is why I know that, at around 50 seconds into the video, the Colt rep explains the differences between the MARSOC guns and the civilian guns. Hint: one involved hand-fitting, one doesn't.

    Would you like to go back and watch it again, maybe?

    I agree. All this fuss over a painted rail gun from Colt, that happens to be way over priced. :faint:

    And the bragging rights of being a USMC selected pistol. And a G10 grip or something like that.

    Gun sold for $1300. I've found used Colts for as little as $500.

    They are selling at the prices I listed, whether you like it or not. Buying used is a whole different story and to follow that red herring is moot.

    As I figured, you couldn't provide any proof other than "on this other site this guy says." I dunno which exact colt you are trying to compare to, but they go for ~850-900 new around here. Rail guns are just a bit more.

    I get that. Please expound on your theory of significance.
    Hint: Hand fitting costs money and generally amounts to higher quality. So the consumer models will supposedly have a higher amount of fit and finish.

    I have posted this in other forums and the "differences" between the true issue gun and the civilian version may relate to the fact the contract (just like FN's M16 contract) specified Colt could not sell the same gun on the commercial market. This may be Colts way of:
    1) cashing in on the hype associated with USMC issed gear
    2) getting around the no civilian sales prohibition.

    I believe so. Cerakote over stainless steel.

    Of course Colt is cashing in on the USMC SOC hype. Not unlike HK and their SOCOM pistol or Beretta and the M9 or Springfield Armory on their FBI contract, etc.

    And you're right on Point 2 as well. Change just enough so that it isn't 100% GI then sell it.

    The lanyard loop is da shiznit. Now that's a proper combat handgun.

    And your SASS number and Alias is?
    I have several 3rd generation Colts. No problems with any of mine.
    Having been involved in SASS since 2000 I have not heard of any of the things you speak of.

    The only complaint I have ever heard is, is that they are not as tough as a Ruger. Well NS different internal design.

    As far as Colt not being your friend. Really? I had a Colt Blue box, I was damaged by one of my pups. Chewed on. So I called Colt. They sent me a new box I paid shipping.

    My "theory of significance" is that they are not going to be identical to the guns given to the MARSOC guys, an assertion you seemed to blow a gasket over despite now agreeing with.

    I know from looking at it and looking at the specs, that I would not pay 2K for one. Period. If you want one, knock yourself out. I know as much about it as you do. Have you picked one up and can speak from firsthand knowledge about how great they are and can justify the price?
