Hi. Recently acquired a Cold Combat Elite 1911. Very nice looking and feeling pistol, but haven't shot it yet. I understand these were fine off the shelf guns. What years were they manufactured? Values of an excellent specimen? Experiences with this gun? Thanks

Jackblackstone, the Colt Combat Elite was made from 1992-1996. In excellent condition it could be worth about $620-$730. Hope this helps!
