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

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

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.

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.

Going for less than a grand on "SlickGuns." There is some sanity out there.

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

Whitakers, not 2nd amendment. Good luck. I was there Friday afternoon (was close by because of work) and Whitakers had 2 Colt LW commanders, went back Saturday to buy, both were gone. Ended up with a Ruger Commander.

Nice find on the ruger!! I went by whittakers last week, and it was packed. I'm not sure if people were buying or just looking around. I left shortly after getting in. Too packed for me!! I was kidding about going out and getting one though. I'm not sure where kygunworks is? Lexington maybe?

2nd amendment charges an arm and a leg. Did you see the colt 6920 they had for 2400? That place charges MSRP, then let you talk them down 30 dollars. I really don't see how there still open. I'd love to see what they'd charge for one of these colt MARSOC.

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