Default Wiley Clapp

My wife said I could spend 1550 on a limited edition Colt Wiley Clapp I am so excited I can't wait to pick it up.
What do some of y'all think about the price?

They are sweet pistols. I'm not sure on the price, but Canebrake is the resident expert on these.

Ya I know my heart stop when when the guy at the store told me over the phone what he had. All I could think about was going and taking a look at it and then asking my wife.

Two months ago you could get one for 1250. I would hold out for a bit unless you HAVE to have it now.

That's a loaded question . I don't have any gun.
But colts are just hard to come by here so when you know of an LGS that has one you better jump on it cause if you wait it will be gone.

I think Cane has a Wiley Clapp Commander.

If you want it, see if they have any wiggle room on the price. If not and you really want it, buy it anyway.

Because:

A. There aren't a bunch of them around
B. It's a Colt
C. It's a limited edition Colt

I'm pretty sure that within a year they'll be selling for over MSRP.

CA375 I knew there was a reason I like you I like the way you think . I was thinking along the same line.
A co worker that was sitting next to me on the ride home, said that was allot of money for a gun but, he like mil surps. And I like new guns.
