    I have seen similar new ones go for quite a lot (~$3,500). Mine was more affordable because I got it used (from the first owner). With shipping, three sets of grips, 2 mags, and an extra recoil spring I paid $2,200. Yes, I know that some will think that I am crazy, but they have not fired it. Besides, the 1911 virus is a particularly virulent one!

    Does anyone know how much extra the titanium frame is on a new one? I was looking at them on the C&S site and the Ti frame is in the "call for pricing" section of add-ons for it. Just curious. This may be my next gun (which is a long way off, too many toys on the want list).

    I'd never seen one before this post. I love the black finish too.

    That is one cool looking little gun....

    Alex of Nossar Gunleather is working on a Valovak for it. He is making a few other goodies to go with it and I will post some pictures when they come. I am also waiting on an Alessi pocket holster for it.
