Shot Show 2018

What bat @#$% crazy surprise would you like Colt to throw at us for this years shot show? I would still love to see the O1913 that Brent spoke of. Saw a pic as well of the prototype. That or a 1920s commercial government model. NM maybe. I know Colt is leaning more towards new styles these days but the replicas they do are fine pistols. Anyway, would love to hear other interests.

It'll never happen, but id love a new 44 magnum colt revolver. Be great if it was a new generation anaconda, and being that the anaconda didn't have the python action and fitting, i believe they were the same or at least similar to the trooper, it's doable. I got the new cobra and despite some reviews, i love it. Honestly, i really just want them to expand the revolver offerings and get some 4 and 6 inch magnums out there. I'm in ny, so carry isn't happening for me any time soon.

A retro pre 80 style 9mm Commander? I would love to see a new medium, or large frame revolver, with a price tag comparable to the current S&Ws, and Ruger GP100. I would also be curious if the rumors of a new plastic striker are true. If they are, they better not screw it up a second time...

I think it was mentioned in another thread that Colt will not be announcing any new releases at this year's SHOT Show. If true then it's probably a good thing, because it means Colt will actually deliver on its promises for a change.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Regardless, the Chicken Fried Lobster at Binion’s will be worth the trip.

Brent back in the booth, followed by an announcement that the current circus act has been bought out by a competent investment group.

I would love to see an S70 with rollmarks from the 50's and with a deep blue finish.

A plastic framed version of the short lived Pocket 9, might be a good answer to everyome else's cheap single stack 9mms.

Careful what you wish for, that "competent investment group" might be Cerberus. Can you imagine if Colt was member of the freedom group? Take a look at what happened to Marlin, and Remington.

They're in the SHOT catalog with a location. They'll be there.

The sign of a bad investment group is if they buy Colt...

Not so much an investment group, more like some other firm or company, although it would be hard to imagine that any investment group could possibly do any worse than the current bloodsuckers.

Hopefully will have a presence even if they just show some of the things they currently make.

Folks,

Sorry to say but you will not see new Colt releases for this year.

The Python project will be delayed for a couple of years, the company wants to focus on the new Cobra revolver. You will see two new finishes for the Cobra revolver.

The high cap 9mm pistol is still in the works but will be released well before the new Python. In fact, we are anxious to get the first prototypes here in Europe.

Happy New Year to all of you!
