Colt Combat Commander .9mm Deal Of The Week

Ended up being the first and only bidder on GunBroker for this 9mm Colt, never dreamed my bid would hold up. It all started when I was trying to find a "shooter" in 9mm instead of my Sapphire. I consider the Kimber Stainless Ultra's in 9mm basic models since they don't have night sights, used they were asking 800 and up and new ones were around 900. Then I looked for CDP Ultra's in 9mm, new were more than I wanted to spend. I was outbid by five dollars on a nice used one on GunBroker ($905) winning bid. Then my LGS had a used one for $949 but after inspection it did not meet my standards, he would not reduce the price. If I run across a nice used CDP Ultra 9mm I may pick it up but not going to go crazy looking for one.
So I searched 9mm and found this Colt and thought well I guess it don't have to be a Kimber, always loved Colt's and Colt 1911 was my first 1911 back in the day. I didn't own a Commander so it made sense to me.
Pistol was delivered at 10:42am Wed. to my FFL guy. I had to wait a couple extra days because he had a doctors appointment and then a medical emergency for one of his friends. Since I knew the gun was at his house I was in no hurry. He does not have a store, works out of his basement and only charges $20.00 for the transfer fee so I don't mind waiting.
Pistol looks great, feels solid, no rattles, finish looks real nice. Will it be as accurate as my Sapphire Ultra? Don't know we will find out.

Man, I just dream about keeping up with Zoomy, even when he buys one he has another one on the sales counter, one or two in layaway, and a couple more in the pipeline!

Hoping to give it range time Tuesday or Wed. this week.
