Colt Custom Comp 45

I picked this Colt Custom Comp 45 up Monday afternoon & finally got around to taking some pictures of it..
Previous owner had the frame drilled for a Wilson Combat scope mount & put a slide racker in place of the rear sight..
I'm in need of a rear sight assembly = What I need to shoot it..
Would prefer a rugged fixed unit but mostly only see adjustable sights on this type of pistol.. PM Me if anyone has one available Please!
Could some of you give me a price range that this pistol might be worth on the open market?
Came to me with one factory colt M magazine, I installed a Pachmayr pad from my stash.. No box etc. Just the magazine & gun in an long old gun rug.
IIRC these came with a couple Chip McCormick magazines..
I've had this thing about long slides for a while = Glocks 24 & previous 17L.
This Colts fit & finish is far beyond any I have ever had, The barrel to slide fit is just amazing..
I walked in the LGS looking to buy another sub compact Glock 9mm & walked out with a Custom Shop Colt Compensated 45acp

Was wanting a Glock 42 or 43, Still have a Glock 26 Gen 4 BTW & the G24..
Gave my S&W Shield 2.0 9mm to my twin brother & my Taurus 85CH to my dear Wife + #3 Son has the Glock 26 & that leaves me the Glock 24..
Can I justify this Colt as a Carry piece? Need a Rear Sight ASAP CHEAP!!
From what I can surmise these where made about or around 2010-2012, I could only find a few pictures of this pistol while searching..
The serial # is SCGA032#
Any info or pricing would be helpful..

Thought I'd toss some pictures of the other guns in the post just because..
I have tried to see that every

I think that maybe Colt has stepped their game up..
This pistol is fit like a Les Baer or Wilson..

That is a really cool gun.
Rear sight cut looks like standard Bo-Mar BMCS; Bo-Mar is out of business, but there are lots of copies available.
Is the frame stainless, or plated? It would be possible to fill the holes with headless screws, which could look as good as "OK", or you could have the holes filled and the frame refinished.
Compensated, single stack .45s are, today, useful for bowling pin shoots, which may still be popular, somewhere?

I thought about getting some allen set screws to fill them ugly holes or put a piece of grip tape over them..

There's a forum member who is offering a fixed rear sight for $25 to me,
Haven't seen it yet.. Sounds very interesting..

From the specs I found on one website this pistol has carbon steel frame that's hard chromed = Appears Stainless..

I will also have to state that this Colt is a PITA to break down & clean..
Two piece recoil rod assembly & tightly fit barrel bushing etc.
Need a cut barrel bushing wrench..

Will have to look around.. WOW Millett & Bo-Mar are both now gone..

I have a all blue one. Softest shooting pistol I own. Super accurate, you are right at PIA to dissasemble. But a joy to shoot. A great pin gun, no barrel rise.

There was a sportings goods shop back in the day. They sold high end shot guns, early smith and wesson performance center guns, and colt custom shop guns. I remember them having one of these in the case new.

Here's some info I came across so far on this pistol..
Manufactured in 1998 Colt Custom Shop Competition Model with Compensator
The rear sight assembly is a Bomar Cut with the threaded hole..
I have a rear sight coming cost me $45 shipped it's a Kensight..
Should have the sight assembly this week, Once I get it fitted it'll be off to the range..
I'll have about $700 total in the pistol once complete & then will just need a couple more magazines..

Compensated, single stack .45 is a weird gun, especially in 1998.
It may have been a hot commodity in competition, but probably for no more than a year, and way before 1998.
It would be interesting to know what the original owner was using the gun for; is there a division in bowling pin shooting that would make a comped, scoped .45 the hot ticket?

John Harrison should have a fixed rear that would fit the BoMar BMCS cut. The link for the Series '80 Colt Special Combat models is at https://shop.harrisoncustom.com/spec...vernment-model

Yeah, it costs more than an adjustable. Can't see the point if I am not bound for the trenches.

I set up a single stack comp gun in the early 90s. We knew the AWB was coming and figured that IPSC competition would be limited to magazines you could buy.
Nope.

I looked @ John Harrison's sight but after pricing it I decided to just go with an adjustable Kensight unit I found for sale on Glock-Talks Classifieds new for $45 shipped, See Above the three pics of the sight #860-003..

rogramirez Love the looks of that comped pistol..
Those are some crazy looking grips on there..

Not sure why this pistol was made, I put the serial # on Colts website & the # has been used three times over the years..

SCGA032*
1) 1993 Government Model
2) 1998 Special Combat Government
3) 1998 Special Combat Govt. Competition Model

It's marked Combat Government Model on the RH side & Colt Custom Comp on the LH side of the slide..

Can't wait to get out & shoot it..

Glock 24 & Colt Custom Comp

Still can't believe that I went into a gun store to buy a Sub Compact Glock 43 & walked out with a Custom Shop Colt 1911.. No Way Man!!

I would just put some slotted filler screws similar to what is used to plug scope mount holes in the frame and leave it at that.

Yeah I need to take one of those screws & get to the hardware store & see what's available as far as filler screws or allen set screws etc..
The ones like CAR speaks of kind of like the filler screws in a Ruger 10/22s receiver for a scope mount..

I took my time & went really slow filing the dovetail of the Kensight until it just fit & then fitted it the rest with the punch & hammer.. On the five sides of the dovetail you can't even see any light under the sight = Perfect Install..

Scored a SIG Sauer 1911 45 magazine @ Rural King this morning = The only one they had price was $29.99..
Also picked up a S&W M&P Shield 2.0 380 EZ for my youngest son & a box of critical defense 380acp ammo..

Still need to get to the range..
