Those replicas were also sold a few years ago as the Colt Model O1918

I'll stick with my reworked black army but I saw a few people posting about cracking/shooting concerns so it may be an option for someone wanting early features.

Looks like they only made 750 of them. That's a huge bummer. Cimmaron for me!

I wonder if these are already out or coming out.

There's one on Gunbroker.com right now with a Buy It Now of $999.95.

I'm not sure of the rationale for spending that much on one of those Colts. If you want a piece of history, get a real USGI pistol, from the CMP or elsewhere.

If you want a 1911 shooter, get a modern one that will have better sights, probably a better trigger, a nice beavertail, a flared magazine well, a lowered ejection port, ambidextrous safety, match barrel, front slide serrations, etc. from one of the many manufacturers that offer them. You can even get a Colt Competition Model like mine below for less than $999.



If for some reason you want a USGI-style shooter that has tiny, hard to see USGI-style sights, plain looks, no lowered ejection port or flared magwell, small beavertail, etc. there are several USGI clones made by Springfield Armory, Auto Ordnance, Armscor, TISAS, etc. for a fraction of the price of the Colt. You can even get a Colt 1911 Classic for less than $999.

So again, if you want a real USGI 1911-type, get the real thing.

If you want a USGI-style shooter with modern metallurgy get a clone for a reasonable price.

If you want a good shooter 1911 with all of the improvements to the 1911 design that have been made during the past 100+ years, get a modern one.

Killjoy!

Actually, I agree with all your points. While waiting for my CMP 1911 I purchased a semi-mixmaster from Shawn Hogue, here on the Forums. Fed my urge.

The only pluses to this that I see, and I think that they are real ones, are the Colt name and rollmarks, and the U.S. build. While I would not spend the extra money for these versus a RIA clone, I can understand why others would.

750 made by Colt sounds like good business sense - a trial run for what is probably a small market.I

"Life is Good!"

Yeah I saw that one but it has no actual pictures that I saw.

The previous reissue lineup has really gone up in value. I assume these would as well.

I get that it makes smart business sense but I am not interested in one at the same or greater value than an original, and after these sell their value will rise.
