CMT compact 1911

I was in a LGS and saw a CMT Compact 1911 sharp looking gun. I have not heard of this brand and didn't get much out of Google... Does anyone have any info or opinions on this?

A little quick Google-Fu reveals CMT is Continental Machine Tool Company:

Some photos of a nickel model from another forum: http://forums.1911forum.com/showthread.php?t=369767. Another post from the same person said the price was about $1,500.

A thread indicating they machine (not forge) AR-15 receivers for a number of manufacturers: http://www.ar15.com/archive/topic.ht...f=118&t=360821

Website for CMT at http://www.continentalmachinetool.com/index.html
