I picked one up about 4 years ago. The dealer had just received a bunch of various Colts in that were supposedly a salesmans samples. I had stopped by the gun shop on a Friday evening after work (what else would a GunNut be doing on a Friday night after work) and they were just tagging the new inventory. I thought about the gun all night and drove back first thing Saturday morning and bought it just ahead of another guy who started looking at it. The one I have is all stainless and is as described above by Seppeku. It came in the original brown Colt cardboard box. I had many failures to feed when I first brought it to the range. I remember being so upset I wanted to return it. I then bought a new recoil spring from Brownells and it worked flawlessly. It ended up being one of my most accurate pistols I own. I think I paid 850 for it.
