    Have a Combat Elite XSE & was pondering making a few upgrades. Thinking about changing out sights to 10-8 rear & either FO or gold bead front. Anyone here have one that they have had some work done too? Any other ideas??? :pop2:

    Shouldn't be too hard for most here to figure out who dressed this roscoe up!

    Mine is one of the newer ones bought in 2010. So far I've just added some VZ grips.

    Here's my early 90's version Combat Elite. I sent it out to have the rails welded and tightened up. This was my first IPSC Limited gun and has always been my favorite. Looking forward to it being finished. SS

    Funny you should mention that, I have a Colt Combat Elite from 2011 that went back to the Colt shop for some work, including a brass bead front sight and black Novak rear.

    I've seen a few with the front strap checkered and man I've got to tell you that the combat elite is one of the best looking current production colts out there.

    2011 XSE model:Solid trigger, C&S Dymondwood grips, NHC MSH/Magwell and 80 series components removed. Not to much ,but I like it just the way it is now.

    Cylinder & Slide is right! I have a black set on my Valor but I don't see them on the website anymore.
