    I just joined the forum. I figured I show my new Combat Elite. I prefer my older Combat Elite so far but I haven't shot the new pistol yet. I'm not a perfectionist with my firearms but this is the first colt I bought for retail price and out of all the Colt pistols I have owned this one has the most cosmetic issues. Pictures of the pistol in the light look weird, must be how the black ion bond looks on the stainless steel on the polished areas. Cosmetic issues are tooling marks, the front site drifted wayyy left and a few others. Out of the light the pistol looks good.

    Welcome from Kentucky! Congrats on the CE!
    I have 2 of the new Combat Elites & 2 older ones. Both new ones look great. The 9mm Govt is having some feeding issues but it’s very accurate. The Commander 45acp has some machining issues that I’m waiting for Colt fix. Overall they’re both really good looking guns. Just can’t wait for them to be solid shooters.
