Hi All,
New here and have a question, what is the availability of the current bright stainless 1911 38 Super
currently in Colt's catalog? Are they readily available?

Thanks

NO Colt is readily available. Demand exceeds supply. Production is sporadic and limited. Prayer and luck are recommended.

Judge is right. You can ask your local gunshop to place an order for you and keep a constant vigil on the gun auctions online. Gunbroker is perhaps the best indicator for what is available and what isn't. Keep in mind, too, that you will see many more .45 ACP pistols before you will the .38 Super. Remember, the hunt is part of the fun! Best of luck and keep us updated.

THanks,
Yes, I (for some reason) thought things might have changed recently. I guess not..
I've spent the better part of my life chasing down Colts, of all types. :)

I'll just keep plugging away at gun shows, on line deals, and getting the word out.

Thanks

I find that the local gun shops know less than most enthusiasts. A lot less!
Their eyes go glossy when you describe a specific gun/options and they offer
whatever they have in their case as a "better" substitute... LOL!
