Sam Colt Fan's today post on wanting a reissue CCO in 2004 got me to thinking: I have a CCO that I paid $800 for about 12 months ago, probably more than I should have, even though its in excellent condition both function and appearance. It appears to be an XSE series CCO with all the features of that model as described in the "Blue Book", except that the slide sides finish is bright stainless with a brushed stainless finish on the top, rather than totally brushed stainless. Was the XSE series CCO produced in different sub versions, or could the slide finish have been specially modified to bright SS by Colt or others? Presumably, Colt production was limited to only 2000 for the one year it was produced, which normally wouldn't permit multiple versions. Understand that I'm not unhappy with the looks of this CCO, because its absolutely gorgeous. Just wanted to know if its been bastardized - or if my particular model is even more rare than the 2000 number would indicate. For reference, the serial number is LF1056XX. Thanks for any comments this forum can provide.
