Maybe this is old news but I just read an article in the October issue of Tactical Retailer Magazine.

There is no ceiling on prices any longer.

The Erath3 Customized 1911 is now for sale @ $8,495.00

Do I hear any takers/

Wow, can they really be that much better?

I have a Kimber tactical custom 2 that I have shot a lot and it has always run perfectly for me.  I bought it in 04 or 05 for $750 IIRC

I used a Wilson Combat once for a 4 day pistol class.  It ran perfectly.  I think my buddy paid $3300 for it.  It was nice no doubt and I really enjoyed shooting it.  But IMO it was not $2500 better than my Kimber.  I cannot imagine that a gun could be much better than that Wilson I used to justify another $5000+  

They must just be marketing to the people with lots of money to burn.  A friend of mine owns a clothing, boots, hats business.  In their stores in wealthy areas they mark prices up 100, 200, sometimes 300% from their other stores and the wealthy come in and buy that stuff up like crazy.

I've seen some expensive ones: titanium frames and Damascus slides.

This one starts as just a springfield frame ans slide. No exotic metals. I bet it is a beauty though.
