New World Ordnance YouTuber got his hands on this limited edition, a Colt CQBP M45A1 Decommissioned 1911 USMC Special Operations Pistol. As you may or may not know, Colt has released a limited edition, small batch of these US issued 1911 pistols. The small batch went on sale on GunBroker.com, from one seller, approximately 500 of them. All 500 sold within 24 hours and were only available to GunBroker.com Gold Members. He got lucky and got 4 of them at $1,350 each, as part of the Deal of the Day.
Not long after, he saw the first re-listing of this Decommissioned 1911 Colt for $3,500, and it sold! Talk about a quick increase in value. That’s due to the fact that these pistols are so collectible, so rare and so desirable by military collectors, the price increased fast and it probably won’t be decreasing any time soon.
