If you do, just understand what you're getting into.

Yes, they are expensive to get work done on.
Only a small handfull of people are truly competent to do so.
All but Colt are backlogged at least a year.
Colt can still do some work on them, but Colt is running out of parts & has not ordered any in a long time. Quite possibly might never do so again, they're not obligated to support long discontinued models forever.
You'll pay shipping to return it to Colt.

The gun is not fragile, but the key wear point- the hand, does wear sooner than in other designs.

How soon you wear a DS out, or how soon it may need work, depends on how much you shoot & what you shoot.
Not recommended for lots of +P loads.
