OK, why isn't he on the COLT forum also? Is it just volume of members? I think 1911forum has more but they are not just Colt enthusiasts. I'd figure Colt would want to know what the members of the Colt forum had to say. Hope this doesn't show what they think of collectors of their products.

I bet they're just variations on the SAA and the 1911 not truely "new models". That's just my cynical opinion.

Probably more likely the case than not Dave, but Kimber sure has made some strides over the last few years offering the public multiple "variations" of their 1911 models. Same guns, different marketing ploys. Don't know if Colt is anywhere near the point yet where they can introduce a truly "new" model, or even reintroduce a classic old one, but they've got to start somewhere to try and regain some of the market.
