I would put my Springfield Operator up against the Colt anytime, and win.

"Win" at what? Kinda hard to take anyone that posts a pic of their 1911 with that duuchey Hornady Zombie ammo, seriously.

Might not look too bad in a holster made of rattlesnake skin.

Last thing I'd read from colt is they'd be about 2k. Just wait for the hysteria on the first ones to pass

I always thought the Colt Gunsite's were over-priced.

Not surprising the new Colt Marine pistol is going to be pricey for the commercial market, though.

I'd also rather have a SCG ... for less money.

For that price? Diamond encrusted grips and gold grip screws.

Coming from a Jarhead, I'd expect a $1,500 gun plus a $500 tacticool tax. I still wouldn't pay that. For nearly $2,900 OTD, I'd be looking at Baer, Brown, or Wilson instead.

You wouldn't, but there are plenty of military wannabes out there who will buy just because it's a Recon Marine gun. Rather like the Mk23 because it was a Navy SEAL gun.

Sad part is,.....that is not even the gun the Marines will get.
They will see a loosely goosey production line Colt.

I hope it comes with a case of KY.
It's a good looking gun which should retail for about 1200.

That's more like it, but I'd take the Special Combat Government over that.

That's a lot of dough for an off color Springfield MC Operator!

Ah...no! It's a Colt. The real deal. The one that actually passed the trial and didn't lose out like the foreign job.

Cause we all know that government small arms contracts are based solely on performance right?
