You can probably buy the gun and knock the black finish off for under 2k. Check with a smith to be sure.I really wish the new GBOB would be in SS. I am not a big fan of the black finish no matter how hardcore it is. If it was SS I wouldn't hesitate to pay $2k for it. :bawling::bawling:
That is the exact reason I am going for the GBOB. I have plenty of .45's laying around I need a good 9mm 1911 and I wanted something a little nicer than the Aegis II or the SS Pro Carry II from Kimber.OP, as above, why not consider the VBOB? Unless you have your heart set on 9mm.
