    My new toy! Hope it's a collectible one day. Only 300 made.

    Don't know. Haven' shot it yet. Trying to decide whether I will or not. It has a very nice trigger and is tight throughout. And of course, the oil-rubbed bronze finish is gorgeous.

    I bet that wasn't cheap. Congrats on the gun. I would not shoot it if it were me. Plenty of other commander Sigs that you could do that with.

    The only limited series guns i can think of that are worth anything beyound the normal versions are the winchester 1873's in the 1in100 and 1in1000 promotions from the 1800's.

    Take it out shoot it enjoy it because if its value does go up it wont be in your lifetime or grand children's lifetime

    For me it'd be hard to shoot it because that would mean I'd have to stop staring at it, that finish is awesome.

    I know a lot more. Here is my factory two-tone CBOB 10mm in which only 100 were made in 2009. When you can find one for sale, they are selling for over $2k. One on GB a couple months ago sold for $2500. That's more than double the original price in only 4 years!

    Ya gotta shoot it. If ya keep any length of time for its price to go up considerabley you wouldnt want to sell it anyway. And running a few hundred rounds through it wont depreciate the value of it too much come 20 years from now.

    I'll probably shoot it. I'll probably be dead in 20 years (I'm 70) and won't care. I have no one to leave it to anyhow. ( I bet I'll get a bunch of volunteers from the forum)

    Those pictures do not do that gun justice. I handled one in person at my LGS and it was absolutely beautiful!

    Eh, those aren't worth a thing. Certainly don't shoot it! I hear those limited edition Sigs have a ton of problems and blow up in people's hands. Just send it to me and I'll make sure it gets a proper burial. I'll even pay for the shipping. :cool:

    It's going to be a couple of weeks before I get to shoot it, maybe longer. I'm having surgery done tomorrow to repair my sternum. I guess I'll just be able to fondle it for awhile.

    If I don't survive the surgery, I'll have the wife send it to you :)
