Haven't bought a new Colt in a while but that all changed today. I like the looks and the feel of this gun. Not a fan of the way the stocks look but they do feel good in my hand. It is actually a bit heavier than I expected (not necessarily a bad thing). Kind of glad I waited until the prices went down to pick one up; plus, I was able to order a leather holster from Galco and just found out that VZ now has Cobra Stocks (Thanks, usmc-nav). Other than spending another $180, very happy. As soon as they come out with a more standard front site, I'll be set.
