    I just ordered a hard to find Colt Combat Elite Commander, stainless steel with the two tone effect, and am anxiously expecting it to arrive by the middle of next week. Does anyone else have one of these fine looking pistols, and if so, provide some feedback/thoughts regarding the overall quality of the pistol.
    Thanks

    I picked one up at the end of September. The rear sight set screw was missing. A fellow addict was kind enough to send me a rear sight with screw, Thanks again @bnaples!
    The slide locking lug closest to the ejection port has the front & rear edges rolled off. I'm not sure if this will cause any issues or not, I'm still on the fence about sending it back to Colt or just stuffing it in the safe.
    I would field strip your CE when it comes in & look everything over real close before you fill out any paperwork.
    Mine did ship with 2 magazines even though the listing from Colt says it only comes with 1 magazine.

    Thanks for the advice, Howe. As I am sure everyone has done at some point, when the pistol arrives, you just want to go shoot it and forget the small details. With a pistol that cost over $1000, you would hope that you wouldn't be dealing with those problems.
    I would send it back to Colt and have them fix the issues. If you are going to just stick it in the safe anyway, you wouldn't miss it while Colt is making it right.
