    I paid 1250.00 for my new. I am not sure what they cost new today, but I would say a used one in great shape might be worth 900-1000.

    You should be able to get at least a grand for it.

    Jeff, I'd say about $1300-$1350.

    The Gold Combat is the real expensive one.

    True. My gun store has a Stainless Gold Match NIB, for a little under $1400. I have the new bull barreled Stainless Gold Combat still on backorder for $1700.

    Oh ok I thought they were built to the same standard just with different sights. So is the Gold Combat and the Super Match close in price/quality.

    Yes, the Gold Combat has just about the same standard of quality as the Super Match and also comes with night sights and/or a rail.

    The Super Match has the extra hand fitting for the accuracy guarantee and is Kimber's finest 1911. However, it just has target sights.

    The Gold Combat with the rail is the most expensive, due to the night sights and rail.

    It shouldn't loose more than $100-250 in value from new. Especially if it's well taken care of.
