MiGS, I looked at the slide show and I think it's a rather nice looking weapon. $1200 may be a bit high here in the SW FL market also. However, things being what they are in MA (and you'd know better than most of us), you may have a deal in the making there. If this is for your collection, I say grab it. You'd have all the papers and original box to go with it, too. In any case, I don't think you'd lose anything over time. Colts only appreciate over time, ya know. JM2CW.
