There's no doubt the Colts are quite cost-prohibitive, and getting worse every day. Who knows how many of those original 15k remain, though, and they do carry the Colt mystique, so you will pay dearly. The Savages are also gaining steam price-wise, because of the wartime connection, certainly. However, while still expensive, the West Hurleys remain at sub-$20k, at least for the time being. You do have to know where to look and you have to avoid the 'auction' houses. So, for the cost of five or six expensive 1911s, you could avail yourself of one of these masterpieces. Just throwing it out there since we're now in the holiday shopping season!!!!
