I have been (im)patiently waiting for my stainless TRP since January and Ordered a new SBR and suppressor last month. I needed something to hold me over until my goodies get here so when My buddy offered to sell me this LNIB Colt Combat Elite for a screaming deal, I bought it. I havent shot it yet but it seems like a pretty nice gun. The grips were my main buying point and my crap pics don't do them justice. The guide rod tunnel is centered and all of the machining looks great. This is my first Colt 1911 and it is a really neat gun, but nothing overly impressive. It has quite a bit of "battle rattle" but I guess I'll just have to see how it shoots. The fit definitely doesn't live up to the hype and mystique of the brand. I would put this in the same class as the Springfield Loaded. Anybody have one of these? ETA: the Colt mag that came with the gun absolutely sucks. The spring is too weak to lift the slide lock, hence the Wilson mag in the pics.
