View Full Version : Special Combat pistol

Has anyone been on Colt's web site lately? The Special Combat model with the satin finished frame is really catching my eye. Wonder what the price tag looks like? I know the Gunsite model runs around 1400 smacks. Just curious.

Davidsons Gallery of Guns lists the MSRP of $1640.00. There is one on gunbroker.com listed for $1275.00. It's a beautiful colt. If I skip a couple of mortgage payments, I might be able to afford one...

I love the wy the bluing contrasts the saitin finish. The pistol is also factory tuned according to the details. It also comes with the targets shot during it's test fire. This leads me to believe it is a custom shop item.
I like you have a champagne taste and a beer pocket book. It's not financially feasable right now.

I like the aesthetics of the two-tone as well.
My local dealer is trying to tantalize me with the newer production series 70 1911 he's got in the display case. He claims that they are on distributor allocation and command the price of $795.00/ per gun. Since I am on a diet coke budget (forget the beer and champagne), it is still out of my budget.

I'm alloted one gun per year. I'm picking up a Colt MKIV this weekend so it will be a little while before I can seriously look at another one. It's hell to be poor!
