    You just have to keep looking. I've asked a few large retailers and several smaller gun shops here in Houston, and they all say the same thing. They have paid orders waiting on guns. They get one or two every now and then, but no real inventory yet. And the questions about availability are almost daily. Trust me, people want them just as much as some hate them.

    Bought 6" version in January. No issues and over 500 rounds through the gun. Absolute tack driver and can't wait to buy the 4.25 version next. Some guns of initial production run had issues

    1. Muzzle crown imperfections/burring
    2. Loose screws
    3. Cylinder rotation

    None of those issues were experienced with my firearm. Conduct your own inspection and buy with confidence. It is a darn fine revolver!

    $1,499.00
    I've been up early my entire life. And all that ever did, was increase the amount of time during the day that something could go wrong.

    Please explain to me how the screws can walk out by Brownian motion. I thought that had to do with fluids. I am not being a smart A$$, just want to learn.

    I respectfully disagree about them being overpriced at retail. I would also be very surprised if they are selling slow for $1,259 in 3 months or less. My guess is it will take 6 months to a year at best to be able to find them at $1,500.

    I "heard somewhere" that Colt wholesale to dealer is $1,2xx and change. Can't imagine ever seeing one for sale at cost.
