Bought one a few years ago when they were being clearanced out. Had the high-caps and aluminum case for under $1000 then. Have only seen a few others since. The .45 one I still see occasioanlly. I got mine with intentions of using my factory USP optics mount and my LG35 for plate shooting. Tried it, it shot great but the sport just didn't excite me as I'd thought it would. haven't checked in quite some time, but I don't believe the 9mm Elite is imported now nor has been for a while.
