    looks like a nice gun - are these like Sigs CPO and a bit cheaper than a new one or do you pay a premium?

    It was a bit more than my Colt Custom Shop CQBP.

    But how often do you get to buy a true USGI 1911 that can be lettered to the USMC?

    isn't this a fairly new addition to the USMC? how can they be decommissioned already?

    The Marines didn't like the original Cerakote finish because it chipped off too easily, so they switched the specs to Ionbond and returned the Cerakote pistols under the warranty.

    I heard that Colt determined it was less costly to just go ahead and replace the Cerakote pistols than it would be to refinish them in Ionbond. So, Colt sold off all the returned and decommissioned Cerakote pistols.
