When you see how many machining operations and hand fittings are involved in a forged 1911 its no mystery why they cost what they do.

Whoever was asking why a 1911 costs so much more than a Glock in another thread should see this vid.

No kidding they are a sceaming deal... garunteed glocks mark up is way over in percentages what a colt 1911 is.

I was thinking the same thing.
Makes you appreciate the old war horse.
And it really makes you realize that the 1911's are a good priced gun for all that goes into making them.
I'd love to work there.

Very cool video! I didn't know that Colt uses forged frames instead of cast ones.
