Why would anyone pay $800 for a gun?? Its because we want too! I sometimes wonder why people pay 4k on 1911 pistols, to each their own. But one last thing, I think its a good bargain mine shoots Sub MOA .875" groups with premium ammo.
I paid $800 out the door as well. I have seen them here in NC anywhere from $775 to $999. I think I got lucky that I found one in LH
