Certainly could have been ''shopped'' but that would make for fraudulent advertizing - unless of course it is actually genuine.

Wonder how you could find out.

I tell ya, for the last 4 months I have searched the XSE line of Colt pistols and haven't seen one like this. I e-mail Colt and sent them the ad, I wonder what they will say? Maybe they will send me a gift cert for $950 cause I found a "false" advertisement?? But proboly not.

False Advertisement??[ or just bad proof reading? ]

I have one, left to me by a shooting buddy who passed on a couple of years ago. It had the two cut trigger, and the beavertail Colt used on the early ones was the Caspian Speed Bump. [dorsal fin style ]. I think I'm the only person to like that grip safety.

"So even if that is the old style XS, then it is still false advertising right?' Probably just an honest mistake at the non-gun printers.
[ "Duh,hey dis is what a Colt looks like, right?"]

Wow! Bruce, see Team's post in "CCGuns". I'm confused, his XSE looks identical to my XS and the one in the ad.

Yeah, I just saw that and replied to it, the best way to tell is the rear sight I guess, and I can't see it clear enough in his pics.

KC - I took it to be a possible case of concern over misrepresentation of a specific model - re the seeming pic inconsistency.

Perhaps I am dumb, but I miss the whole point of the thread.
:confused: How could you miss it, I stated in the beginning that the gun in the pic wasn't the gun it is spusto be.
