I bought one new and had a lot of regrets after handling and shooting it for awhile. I like the checkering, roll marks, high cut but that’s about it. It is currently being chopped up by NH and I am greatly looking forward to seeing what magic they do to it.
With that said, at that price point I would jump on another one in a heartbeat
I carry the WC CCO and love it.
The WC is an excellent gun, with a National Match barrel, wider notch rear sight, checkering, etc. I personally like the GI thumb safety and would be interested if you care to rid yourself of it.
I own two of 'em....one a standard, the other a prototype (1 of 6 built) lightweight that I REALLY love..... I was leery of it when I first looked - Colt doesn't usually release prototype guns after they've been demo'd, but it came with a Colt Letter that verified its' origin and that it was "legitimately" on the market.
