I just received my Colt Combat Elite from Buds. It was shipped to L.L Beans in Maine (preferred FFL on Buds site). I can't say how pleased I am with the entire process dealing with Buds and LL Beans. I received a new Colt Combat Elite in absolutely pristine condition (as a Colt should be), in just 2 days. The Colt is an amazing piece of craftsmanship, Buds & Beans are amazing, and the price was below everyone else I could find that actually had one in stock (my third CE). I'll be back for more transactions. THANKS BUDS GUN SHOP PEOPLE!

Okay this is my 3rd 1911 for 2011 bought 2 of them from Buds and once again Buds service and price were the best, the Colt is everything I expected it a real straight shooter and very tight, cleans up real easy, although it has a plastic mainspring assembly I just ordered a new arched stainless steel Colt replacement($49) at Midway it really doesn't make a difference in the proformance I just didn't want any plastic on my Colt.

The picture showing now "today" 1/1/12 was not the picture showing yesterday, and when I made my purchase a couple weeks ago! The picture availible now is an accurate portrait of pistol. Hopefully this will help potential customers in the future!

Picked up my "unobtainable anywhere else" Colt Combat Elite at my FFL (halfway across the country from Buds) within just a couple of days of ordering and in plenty of time for Christmas. Thanks Buds for making that possible. I shopped around ALOT before choosing the Colt and can say with confidence the pistol is a fine example of the 1911 at this price point, majority of it is solid parts, good fit of forged frame and slide, just the right few enhancements for my tastes (National Match barrel, opened up ejection port, beaver tail) and better looking in person than the picture. Not a fan of ambi safeties and this does not have one. After the usual bringing home a new gun ritual of detail strip, inspect, clean, and lube the action is smooth as silk. No flaws to speak of, tightly fit but not excessively so. I am happy with the purchase and its a keeper.

Only thing I may change soon is the composite mainspring housing, functional but just seems out of place. Long term might add night sights, though the 3-dot set up it comes with has decent contrast and is OK for now.

PS the picture does not look wrong to me; slide is all blue with smooth sides (which might look a bit shiny but not two-tone) and a textured top to reduce glare between the sights. A simple look at the Colt catalog or their web site confirms this configuration for the Combat Elite.
