    Hmmm, Colt and S&W AR's outselling the others, Mossberg outselling Remington for pump actions and even new autoloaders, S&W M&P's outselling Glocks, and Rem 700 SPS outselling Savage Axis's, and Rem 700s outselling Ruger Americans???? It's like this country, overall, is actually willing to spend the money to get something decent! You wouldn't know it from spending 5 minutes on Arfcom. Also, the old choices of the past ages like the Glocks and Rem 870's are going away slowly.

    I have a pre-1911A1 Colt in mint condition; just need the correct wood grips. The ones appearing in the pic above run about $300+; apparently the double "Diamond" wood grips are reaching Unicorn status.

    Backstory: I traded two cans of M855 on stripper clips (420 rd. can) for this pistol.
