    No "real" experience, but that's the one I'd get if I were in a "getting" mood for this pistol. Check the dust cover before you buy one.

    Hello 12131, I have owned a bunch of Colts and did own a blue/nickel two tone SCG .38 Super. It was a very nice looking gun with lots of "features". I don't recall any malfunctions with my SCG with any ammo I used. Unfortunately, mine, and the others I handled in both calibers, showed no more precision in fitting of slide/barrel/frame than found in a standard production Colt. Mine displayed no better accuracy than standard, current production, Colt Government Models. Even so, they are nice guns. The Carry model you're considering is, I think, a lower production version. That is the one version of the SCG, that I have never seen or handled in person. IMHO, it is the best looking of the SCGs. If I were currently looking for one, I'd pay $1600.00. If you don't buy it I'd be interesred in knowing where it is for sale...

    Good price and good looking gun, but I can't look past the S80 crap.

    I like Colts. Although I have 1911s by Baer, Brown, Dan Wesson, Remington, Sig Sauer and Wilson Combat; when I'm at the range punching paper for points, with the exception of one 9mm Baer PII, I'm shooting either a Gold Cup or a .38 Super Special Combat Government.

    Its Colt's current top of the line 1911. I just wish it were a Series 70 design. :sigh:

    The brother don't do all that weird stuff like mag well funnel and extended this or that. HOWEVER, the brother may have to make some sacrifices for a .38 Super caliber model.:embarassed:

    I would love to have a O2570CM, .38 Super Hard Chrome, even though I have never seen one.

    There's one in my above post; it looks even better in person.
