Which particular XSE? I have a Combat Elite that's in the XSE lineup and it's one of my more accurate pistols. It has a nice finish and is well fitted. If you want a Colt, I haven't heard too many people say the were unhappy with a recent Combat Elite purchase. The only thing I wish were different on mine is to have front strap checkering, but you don't often see that in this price range.

The Special Combat is their best, albeit expensive.

They're $1,000 per set and you get a free gun with them. :supergrin:


As far as I know you can't get them except from Colt and they aren't on their website.

Cheap wal-mart knock offs. Only way I can afford the Colt!!!!!

I have to wear them most of the time due to a foot and leg injury.

Comfy too!!!

Nice!

Did you send it back to Colt for the checkering, or somewhere else?

My only "custom" is a Colt XSE that I sent to Grizzly Custom for the 1* package. It is a nice shooter.

I would have been better off just buying another Baer, but for some reason I thought I needed a Colt in the stable.

Ok, since you played the "I only wear them due to injury" card, we will give you a pass. :rofl:

Nice Pony btw. :thumbsup:
