Really, what makes the CCP so expensive?

Custom Shop?Ambi?polished flats?Turnbull?bone? Ivory? Synthetic? No carry melt. I love the gun l need someone to sell me one. I want another pro. Thought I would hold out for the Onyx pro. Looks like that may not happen for a while. I think it is a $1200 gun. Not 1750 and up for supposedly bone. The website says Ivory. The dealers must have taken the Ivory off and added synthetic. My luck it would really be plastic. My Turnbull would be bull allright. How would l know.

The Classic Carry Pro is an all steel gun like a SCPHD, it has a beautiful charcoal blue finish by Turnbull restoration and bone grips. It comes with night sights, ambidextrous safety and the carry melt. Every time I've had the gun at the range someone had come over and commented on how beautiful it looked.

The website says Ivory and no carry melt. Did this change? Alot of the dealers on Gunbroker specify synthetic grips. Very confusing.

This is my point. So much confusion with this gun. How do you know. How does Chuck know. How does anyone know?
