If you don't mind me asking, how much was the one you bought? I have one available to me and the guy is asking $575. Unsure of condition yet since I haven't seen it, and unsure of production year. These pistols look really nice, and I've always wanted a Colt.
I purchased mine from a retail gun store for $695 OTD. Probably not the best price but a fair retail price, I thought. They know what they are selling but they have always treated me right, sometimes holding a gun a couple of three days for me and doing transfers free.
