My dealer is a personal friend, and I don't think he would blow me off. I should clarify that I am wanting the 2011 model with the commerative rollmark on the slide. The one at gunsamerica is last years model. The other difference between the two is that the 2011 model has rosewood grips, not the black grips that are pictured. Thanks for the search though. I did call Colt today, but the customer service rep was not very helpful. All he could tell me was that it is in production. He said he does not receive information as far as when a certain firearm ships or when it is supposed to ship. Unless anyone has any other info, the only thing I can do is place my order with several distributors and wait to see who gets one first.
