Are these that hard to get a hold of?? I talked to one of my local dealers and he told me they are not out yet, just like the stainless ones weren't out. I didn't want to argue, so I just said ok. It bothers me a bit that they wouldn't be more up to speed on some of the weapons makers they carry, but the regular PT1911 they carry are at a better price then the other 3 local dealers I have contacted. So, I guess I'll just go with the standard since he told me the others just aren't to be had.
