I have a Colt 1991A1 Compact that I bought about 20 years ago. Added Wilson Combat “Night Eyes” sights, a combat action job, Pachmayr grips and recently had it Cerracoated flat black. Right now it’s being modified to install a full length guide rod and recoil spring from Wilson Combat. Even with all of this, it’s still several hundred $ less expensive.

I’ll pass on this one.

Stupid price ! There are other’s on the market at a reasonable price.

That’s a nice gun but the price is an XDs and a couple years worth of .45 ammo.
