They are $2400 at LE price.

Here's a used one on gunbroker and they want $6,250 for it, that is the buy now price. It does have real ivory grip.

Was that the LE pricing in 2015? Have you researched the LE price for '16 yet?

I'm curious, and doubtful that it will remain the same. Dealer cost went up, and as such the prices charged to consumers will rise accordingly, even LEOs.

When I placed the orders for my two Pros in Sept 2015, I was quoted $2199. That's factory direct LE pricing. No middleman.

It still remains to be seen whether quoted pricing from years past will be honored, or not.

It is also interesting to see the two differing reports of LE pricing, combat vet did you order direct or through a dealer?

I think he goes through a dealer if I'm not mistaken. I have emails from Deb at SACS with that price and two invoices so I'm good to go on my end..
My orders were placed in Sept 2015 and confirmed.

FINALLY, the two Professional Operators I ordered (sequential numbers) have finally gotten to the LGS. The first is now on the 10-day wait period, and after 30 days, the next one will be processed. 2-1/2 year wait. After seeing it though and being able to pay for it every month made it a lot easier and truly worth it.

That's awesome! I'm 12 months in on my operator.

Since some guys have complained about the box, looks like they will be happy that it seems to have been upgraded (at least according to these two NIB pros from different vendors on gun broker):

PS- I like the old box.

I have been wanting and keeping my eye open for a Professional for a while. And as we all know they are scarce. Well, last week 3 popped up at once and I could not resist the one that SACS installed a single side safety on. What a wonderful gun, that will truly last a lifetime. This gun is tight and butter smooth at the same time.

Never understood the want for a single side safety, but still, nice looking pistol and congrats!

Well if you all you have is one hand and you are right handed, I guess that would be logical. But, let's stay on topic. Gorgeous pistol either way.

I thought the Pro came with ambi safties only! I also thought that the Pro options couldn't be changed. Unless of course it was sent in for the mods.

Pretty cool! I like the single side safety personally.

The Pro can't be altered in any way until after it's received from the end user, then it can be sent back for any changes such as what the OP had shown in his pics which look great IMO but if it were me I would leave the Pro the way it came from SACS personally.

My new Pro built 4 quarter 2015. The end of the barrel is not what I was expecting, as most have the black T removed upon receipt at the tip from the bushing right? Is this not fit properly?

Mine is the same and the fit is perfect. I've had no issues.
