I have mine on preorder from my local shop. Not sure what distributor he used. And FWIW they didn't nail down a price either.....

For smince, I, though not a daredevil, routinely carry a Kimber Ultra Carry II in my right front pocket, ensconced in a Sam Andrews www.andrewsleather.com pocket holster. With a proper holster, carrying a cocked and locked 1911 in your pocket is no less safe than on your belt, all the controls are covered by the holster. Mine rides very comfortably, prints like a wallet, draws and reholsters very well. What's not to like?

It's gotta be safer than carrying any Glock in the pocket. Where does he think a Mustang was designed to be carried?

I was misquoted. Go back and read it agian, please. It was Bladeandbarrel that made that statement. I was the one that said the small safety was keeping in the pocket aspect of the gun.

I know that they can safely be carried in the pocket. I used to carry a Mustang there myself. But I have carried a Glock there, also. All carry good with a well-designed pocket holster. I wouldn't just stick any of them there without a holster unless it was an emergency.

ILOVE It!

I for one am thrilled with it. This is a 45acp pocket or self defence gun ONLY! That will sell for way under $800 with the Colt Name on it. I don't need sights on a NON TARGET gun. In a close combat fight, if your trying to use sights or line up sights, you're already in deep Doo Doo! I'll buy one. And like already stated. Only the sales figures will tell. And I'll bet a Dime to a Doughnut, they are a sell out for the first two years. The finish don't thrill me, but thats a easy fix!

What a stupid statement. How in the world can you claim that? Just because Colt doesn't want to Krylon paint there products and offer them in 31 flavors like kimber does. Does that mean they dont wont to be competitive? I think not. Colt makes the best product for the money. Less Mim and cast v/s other manufacturers. And FWIW they sell every gun they make doe's kimber or Springfield? I don't think so. My local dealer has a ton of them.....

This model is an excellent choice for a close quarters defense gun... not designed as a range gun, not expected to be. Wouldn't mind having one myself! I like the lack of traditional sights on this gun.

Are there other things I would like to see Colt rather than do than this gun? Sure. Plenty of other things. But this is still a cool little defense gun.

Does this have the awful under trigger radius cut like the other colts? It's the only reason I haven't got a CCO.

I for one prefer the "enhanced" cut, it makes the grip MUCH more comfortable in my opinion. Especially on an officers grip. Without it my pinky sits slightly off the bottom, bothers the heck out of me.

I too love the enhanced "undercut" trigger guard as well... it gives an awesome feel in the hand. I think it's a great feature of the gun. But obviously, no design feature is going to appeal to everyone. If the gun didn't have the undercut trigger guard some would complain. Since the gun does have the undercut trigger guard, some complain. Just the way of the world, I guess.

The CCO (Officers frame) benifits greatly from the undercut. Higher hand hold is a good thing.
Funny that a Glock Guy would complain about such things.

Is this the same undercut that appears on the XSE and staintless 1991 Commander? I like undercuts too, but that one was cheaply done with out any real blending to the frame. Just run the milling machine through and knock off the corners.

Also, to put an undercut on a gun with an abbreviated beavertail doesnt make a lot of sense as it applies more pressure upward on the back of your hand.

I am not the only that doesn't care for it:

Yeah - the niche market that fails to see the need for sights on a personal defense gun that would most likely be used at 10' or less. I love the concept, but admit it's not going to please the masses.

I especially like the way Colt does the undercut on the XSE; it doesn't ruin the lines of the gun. It's done for grip and fell; not cosmetics.

Of course, the Glock is simply beautiful..

Yeah, this is much worse than just molding it out of plastic

As with almost every model of gun you can mention, some will like it and some not. That's why it's great that we have so many choices. I do think the Defender is a more practical application than this model, but I wouldn't mind having either one. As for the undercut... it seems that while some folks prefer the older styling, the majority, it appears, really likes the enhanced undercut. I like it too. And again, you can't please all of the people all of the time....

I just have to say, IMHO, this new compact is not the reason why people buy Colts. Then again, how can you improve on perfection? I guess, so long as there are real Colts still being made and sold I'm happy.

I could care less how it looks, it just doesn't feel right. Not compared to the undercut on a custom gun anyway.

Like a Glock feels better?

Guess it's not the gun for you then is it. No point wasting your time with it. Go custom and have it any way you want it!
