I recently went to a shop and among the new offerings was an awesome 1911 by Continental Machine and Tool Co. out of New Britain, CT. I can find much info at all on this gun. 2 things that set it apart are that it is a forging not a casting and that the slide and barrell are matched throughout the manufacturing process.
Has anyone had experience with this gun? It is priced at about $1,600 and was sitting next to a Colt Gold Cup for $1,100. I probably would have walked out with the Colt that day but can't get the CMT out of my mind.
Here is the manufacgturers link:
