Colt Marine CQB Pistol- Available to Civilians

These are cool pistols but I'm not sure they are worth $2,000, the rail kind of ruins it for me as well.

And the bragging rights of being a USMC selected pistol. And a G10 grip or something like that.

Oh. Well in that case, I change my mind.

I like it, needs checkering but outside of that it looks great. Where are we getting the price info for these? are they already listed?

I'll be willing to bet that despite the 2K price...

They sell more units to civilians than the 4,000 slated to equip the Marines.

I would..... aside from any perceived collector value, it's a well built practical 1911 that will supposedly be built in their custom shop.

Can't you get either the equivalent or even better for a lesser price?

Last I heard, there were only a few people who worked in Colt's Custom Shop, so if that's true, there's a gonna be a LOOONG wait, before they get the first 4000 out the door. Personally, I don't see what warrants this gun to spend ANY time in the CS. Is that where they paint them tan and install the grips? I haven't even handled, much less shot one of these, but I'd be willing to bet that they won't be able to carry a DW Specialists's jock. And the Specialist isn't a "custom shop" gun. If someone wants to drop 2K on one of these, for the sake of owning a "military issued" 1911 that also happens to have the word Colt on the side of it, then knock yourself out and place an order. To each his own. But you couldn't sell me one for 1K. There's not a DAMN thing about them that I like. Not a rail fan. Not an ambi fan. Not a smooth front strap fan. And I'm not a desert tan paint job fan either. I am though, very glad to see the military ordering a 1911, of any kind, but sadly, it is not going to replace the M9 as the standard issue sidearm. And no, I am not a Beretta or an M9 fan. As a matter of fact, I own 5 Colt's.

Yet somehow it beated out the IMBEL that was in the same trial. If the Colt trial ones were broken that badly, I'd hate to see what the IMBELs were like.
