    Has Colt stopped producing handguns? Both of my distributors are completely out of stock on their 1911 line. I looked on Colts home page and they don't even list handguns.

    I just bought four or five new production Colts the last year with the most recent about a month ago.

    As far as distributors and dealers are out of stock, that's true. Colt doesn't conk out a lot of pistols and they get snapped up very quick.

    Apparently Ruger has stopped producing handguns too since there are no SR 1911's in stock anywhere...:dunno:

    I'm still holding out for my centennial 1911, I called a week or two ago and they still hadn't gotten all 750 of them out yet.

    yep, they stopped...that's why they had a display at SHOT with 1911's and the Mustang Pocketlite.

    Colt is also reintroducing the Gold Cup National Match AND still keeps the Gold Cup Trophy.

    I don't get it.
