    Colt Special Combat Government

    So I ran across this today, looked at it and fondled it and just had to have it. So I grabbed it. I was not able to research it, so I do not know much about it, but what I can find, it seems pretty rare...?

    Cane, can you tell me a little more on this such as: Value (book & collector), build quality, etc... I appreciate it !!

    Well I did some trading on it. I gave up a stainless 80 series (which I liked) and an AR I picked up
    For cheap. I have just over $1200 in it.

    The Blue Book says that the two-tone was introduced in 2004. If it came with a certified target then it likely came from the Colt Custom Shop.

    100% - $1625
    98% - $1350
    95% - %1075

    A beautiful pistol indeed. My local shop had a 2 tone Combat Elite come in a month or so ago. I usually check on his website to see if he gets anything I can't live without. I saw the Colt, but I couldn't get to his shop until the next day. When I got there it was gone.

    WOW, how did I miss this thread?? :confused:

    That is one be-ute-T-full Custom Shop Colt.

    As big a Colt's fan as I admit to being, I have yet to buy a Custom Shop gun.

    ** mad envy **

    You done good PSG! [​IMG]

    And if you've only got $1200 in it you are way ahead of the curve.

    With a MSRP of $1,995 and a street price of $1800 you could flip that puppy and make a quick $50, just tell me where to send the check! :p

    My "Book" shows a 100% condition at $1700.

    Yep, just PM me for the shipping instructions. - cane

    Power, I bought a new SCG a few years ago. Mine looked just like yours and was chambered in .38 Super. It was a nice gun, totally reliable, with the Bo-Mar sights that I prefer. I got a smokin deal on mine too, ~$1200+tax. I don't recall exactly, but I know they didn't list for ~$2000.00 back then. I handled a few before buying mine, both calibers, all hard chrome, the two-tones,etc. Went down to a shop to buy an all hard chrome .45 SCG they had in stock, but turned it down due to a factory defect. Some time later bought the Super SCG at the same shop. As to build quality, mine, and the others I handled, were assembled consistent with any new commercial Government Model. I found no evidence of any precision fitting or accurizing of any kind. Same loose drop in barrel bushing, same Colt slide to frame fitting, etc. as a production Government Model,etc. I guess I'd have been more impressed with it if I hadn't already owned a Heinie, Baer,Wilson, RR, etc. Still, the SCGs are very nice guns, especially for anything like $1200.00 now days.
