    I see that. One of them is in PA. Agreed on the price. The only $1900 Ill spend on a Colt is one that someone like Pistolwrench has worked over.

    I've been recently shocked with what people are paying for some of the pistols coming out of Colt. Some of the guys on the enthusiast forum have new Colts that cost as much as a Toyota.. Ron

    I have seen crazy used prices, but not on new stuff! I have a Colt Rail Gun at the shop and i cant even sell the damn thing for $1049!

    I forget what model was mentioned, but it was said there were only 25 made this year. I never see any such Colts, just the $1000-$1200 clackity-clack variety. I don't care much for what I see and a WC Talo I looked at is probably the best Colt I've had in my hand. I don't feel the love.. Ron

    I think some Colt's are beautiful, but nothing ive ever wanted to own. I would however, use one as a base gun on a build, hands down!

    Boy, I hope not.....or maybe I hope so. A few years back I picked up two,not quite consecutive serial numbered pistols identical to the one listed for $845 each. I recently traded one straight up for an all-steel Colt OACP. I still have the other in the safe, new sights, grips safety, trigger, hammer all installed by paul Liebenberg......

    ^welcome aboard. We would love to see that Colt. Don't get to see much of Liebenberg's work.

    I wil take one and throw it up hear. The GS was just a Wilson drop in, the biggest thing was that I wanted him to do the action job. I have the receipt for the work that he did. I am still determined to have him do a full custom build for me in the future. I am fortunate in that his shop is just 10 driving miles from my house.
