Wow, check it out.

5" full-size, fixed sights.

Only $2950. Well, they probably didn't update their web-site yet for the "California price" like they have on the CQB.

Dang for that price you could buy a true custom. Don't get me wrong, I own a Wilson and they make a great 1911, but I think they're asking too much.

Yeah, I didn't mean to say I'm going to run out and buy one.
It just shows their confidence in the CA market to bother to certify such an expensive gun, I think this is the most expensive one on the list.
Although I'd bet they didn't send in 3 of them, but got them added "by petition" saying it only differs cosmetically from their CQB. Only costs $200 plus annual listing fee that way.

I have to agree, for 3K out the door I can get a full house custom from Yost-Bonitz on a Colt or Springer frame and end up with a much better gun than any semi-custom

Then again, you could also buy three Kimbers, a Kimber and a M1a, etc., etc. They are nice but I can think of several different gun combo's for that kind of money that would come first. But like bear said, good to see them offer it up in this state.

I'm waiting for Ken Lunde to buy two of them and post more mouth watering pictures... http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I have a Wilson that looks like this but mine only cost about $2800 a few years back. They the Wilson's shoot very nice and will give you a lifetime service.

For that price you can buy a LB TRS AND a Premier II, and either will outshoot the Wilson.....

$3000 is too much money for a semi-custom 1911.
