Guys, check this out: http://www.coarmsusa.com/ My dealer allerted me to them a couple weeks back. He placed an order for the Scorpion. He said when it comes in he's going to hold it for me to look at before it hits the shelves. If I like it, I'm going to take it. If you click on the link above and then click on Scorpion 1911 under products, you'll see it. It looks real nice for an MSRP of $1199. I'm thinking I could get it around a grand or so, which is a little less than a CBOB these days. It looks like it has some good features, like an enhanced frame and nice checkering. Everything is forged too. I posted some info and specs. The C.O. Arms Scorpion is the original high quality 1911 made by C.O. Arms. With a forged stainless steel slide and frame, the craftsmanship of this pistol is unmistakable. The Scorpion model also features a match grade barrel and quality high-end sighting system that truly sets it apart and above others in its class. With a close attention to detail and an evidence of raw talent, the men and women at C.O. Arms work to create a timeless, American-made product that will please any gun owner or enthusiast who shares in the legacy of the 1911.

Magazines: 2 Grip screws: hex head Strangly enough, the company is starting out with this Scorpion commander and a 3.5" barrel 1911 with a full sized frame called AWP. They aren't building a full size 1911 yet. The owner told my dealer they should be ready to ship in a few weeks. If I like it, I'll be picking it up for sure. We may have a nicely fitted, reasonably priced new 1911 on the market. Thoughts?
