Para Elite Commander-Ducks Unlimited?




$800 too much to have in a like NIB Elite Commander DU with the box, papers and two mags?

What's that finish on the gun anyway....a coating, or plating?

Thanks in advance for any information. Obviously....I am "Para ignorant".

I have a new Elite and it's finished in ion bond. Tuff stuff. Didn't know they had a DU model though.

Nope....Ducks Unlimited....Logo and all on the right side of the slide. I've seen a couple advertised on Armslist for $1200 and one for $900. Don't know what they sold for or if they sold. The adds had either been pulled or expired.

Dang, that would be a nice addition. I would go for it!

Looks brand-spanking-new. That's what I offered the guy, but I think he wants to wait for some DU nut that collects DU guns. All my guns are tools....I shoot them and they are not just for looking at. I hate to buy this gun and shoot it, because there seems to be some degree of scarcity associated with it. I'd give $800 for it....but I'll have to think on it a while longer before I'd offer more. Like most of us here....I am already gun-poor and have my share of 1911's in three calibers.

Sure, if you race against a collector your're probably out.
