I picked mine up for 800, no complaints! Just make sure you clean the pistol first before you shoot it. The previous owner did not and the protective coating material burnt into the stainless slide in multiple spots, hence why i got it for 800 with only 200 rnds down the pipe. The gun is very accurate, the trigger is beautiful and for the most part it functions flawlessly. Seems to have a few issues when i used a Kimber 8 rnd mag but that's not necessarily the fault of the gun. The CT grips make for a nice holding surface and the laser worked great the first and only time i used it. I'm not a big fan of lasers, just my preference. You won't regret the purchase :). It's a Series 80 design if that means anything to you, makes complete disassembly a little more difficult but that's about it.

Picked mine up for $1000, I love it, it is now my everyday carry, I have had it for about 5 months and put 900 rounds thru flawlessly, great gun

My brother bought one for about $800 and he loves it. I've been very impressed with the build quality and accuracy as well. Would not hesitate to recommend one.
