Just curious, how much?

But to your question, I'm really quite surprised to see someone asking that. You shouldn't hesitate in the slightest to buy a Colt.

Nothing wrong with Colt. I understand that there are periods in the history of the company where QC was problematic at times. I have heard that current production is as good as ever.

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?

$1,090 at a local gun shop. Seen it cheaper online but no one seems to ever have it in stock.

What I have heard is, that the Series 70 from Colt is supposed to be one of the better series.

A lovely pistol, but flipping expencive in the US.

Does seem a tad high, but still worth it, especially if the local gun shop is one that believes in service after the sale. That makes paying them a little more than what it costs on line. Actually, last time I priced one was a year or so ago, so that may not be high now.

I have the XSE Commander & I don't think you'll be disappointed in the full size either. The first time I field stripped it, I learned that I was not a fan of the full length guide rod, so changed it out to a standard one. It & the grips are the only things I have changed on mine. I did dab a little "Bright Sights" paint on the front sight so these old eyes could pick it up easier.
