Consider this:

It's a limited edition. Mods will kill whatever value it has in the future.

You buy the WWI to get the WWI features...like a standard ejection port, flat uncheckered mainspring housing, etc.

Yeah, you get the Carbonia blueing, but the slide would have to be refinished anyway once the port was lowered, in all likelihood.

That equals more money...it will not be re-blued for free, especially Carbonia, even if Colt does the mods.

Personally, I think that buying a WWI repro with an eye on modding it is a Bad Idea.

My advice:
Buy a Series 70, current production. Mod it, then ship it off for the Carbonia blueing. It's current production, not limited, and will be cheaper than a WW1 to boot.
