    Thanks

    I couldn't really afford a custom 1911, so I guess this is kind of a "countryboy custom".

    This model was my first semi-auto almost 20 years ago. And I have been happy with its ugly-as-a-glock appearance. Until now. That is gorgeous.
    Would you mind sharing approx. cost? I am truly jealous.

    Thanks

    Colt posts the cost on their website. After shipping it comes out to about $400 for a Royal Blue refinish.

    Took about 8 months to get it back from the CS.

    Stocks from Kim Ahrends are $50-$60.
