Ok. I know why. Because people buy them and they cost more to make but I just get mad when I look at the $2000+ 1911's. I've had a Nitghthawk and loved it. Wish I hadn't traded it. I've gone a Glock kick lately. I know a Glock is and will never be a top shelf 1911 but for around $500 it's kind of hard to beat. Anyone else think that the prices are getting a little crazy?
