Default Colt xse question??

I just picked up a COLT model 01070XSE and the slide is marked COLT RAIL GUN but the gun doesnt have a rail. They guy i bought it from sais he called COLT and they wouldnt admit to putting the wrong slide on the gun from the factory. Its not really a big deal to me or anything but i was just wondering if this is going to effect thw value or the gun or anything?

Call Colt yourself and ask. You can also ask here: Welcome to The Colt Collectors Association official web site

Keep us in the loop. I'd like to know how it turns out.

You can, but it will probably be costly.

I kinda figured it would be. Would that have to be a colt direct order or is there other suppliers for colt products?

Did you buy the gun new?

I think there's more to this story than you have told.

I personally didnt buy the gun new but a guy i know did. He bought it from a local gun dealer and he and the dealer called colt about it but colt wouldnt admit to
Putting the wrong slide on the gun. Im going to go to the dealer and see if he can contact colt again and see if they will fess up and give me paperwork saying it was a messup on their end or will send me the correct slide and i can send them the one i have. Its really not a big deal but im kinda pickey when it comes to my guns. Especially a nice 1911. Should i even be concerned? Does it effect the value any?

It can definitely affect the value of the pistol and not necessarily in a good way.
