Default Check out this $7000 Colt 1911!

I know it is bad form to play up another firearms forum. I don't make it a habit of even referring to other forums.

BUT...

There's a regional forum in my area that has some robust local classifieds (so no FFL required). There is a fellow selling three Mark Morris 1911's They are all selling for $5000 to $7000.

What could possibly make a gun worth such prices? It is pretty and all, but not bling bling.

I don't view guns as collectibles for value. I look at them as useful tools to be shot.

No way in hell I am paying $5k for Colt pistol ..... I don't care if it shoot Nighthawks out of it

Is that for the bunch or each?
If all three are like that in a bunch, then $7000 may be okay, but $7000 each is a little too much.

One is $5000, another is $6500, and the cream is $7000.

The one I have pictured is definitely a gorgeous gun, but I have trouble justifying $1200 for a 1911, much less those #'s.

I went and checked out Mark Morris's site, seems all his guns are going for those prices. I don't know nearly enough of what it takes to build a custom 1911 but damn, $5k+?

I beat the snot out of my guns ... not sure I could do that to one of his pistols

And the seller mentions that it is a perfect gun for carrying? WHAT!!!???!!!???

I've carried $1000 guns before, but generally my carry guns are bumped into, sweated on, all fuzzed up, and generally treated less than every other gun safe gun I've got. I'd never even consider carrying a $7000 government. Maybe someday a $1500 commander, but...

I think I will have to get into building $5-7000 custom firearms, and finding enough crazy people to buy them.
