If people are getting those kind of prices, I need to start going to gunshows. I'd gladly take $1500 for mine, which I rarely ever shoot.
I always saw high prices at gun shows on the tables.  I never saw anyone buy one at those prices.  One time I carried one of mine around.  I think I was asking $700.  A bunch of people stopped me to look at it and told me it was a fair price, but no one wanted to actually buy it. 

I went ahead and ordered a CMP 1911.  I guess it will be luck of the draw.  No one has called me yet.  I just figured it was an opportunity I couldn't pass up.

I know someone with a Remington-Rand WWII 1911 that I would love to have so I guess it doesn't have to be a Colt.

I remember seeing Danish M1s priced higher than (700) at gunshows  when they were still available from cmp for around $400.

A few folks on the M1911.org forum have received their CMP pistols and posted photos. The ones I have seen so far have all been arsenal rebuilds with slide and frame mismatched for maker, but they are in much better condition than what some of the doomsayers were predicting  few months ago.

I got mine last Fall.  I think my number was in the 11,000 range.  I am curious to see what you get as far as frame and slide manufacturer.

Well I am just as happy as can be.  1945 Colt frame with a Colt slide.

The 1911 has clearly been refinished, and when I got it it was dry as a bone.  I rubbed some CLP into it and am letting the parkerizing soak up some oil.  But the finish is in great shape.  It looked like it was rebuilt, then just dumped into storage.  There are some nicks on the frame and slide, and the left hand portion of the rear sight was hit with something (before the refinish).  Plastic grips have a couple nicks, but it's not beat to hell at all.  Rifling is good and sharp, and while it shakes a little, it's definitely no rattletrap.  It feels a lot like a new Rock Island in terms of slide to frame fit.  Trigger seems nice enough as well.  Not Dan Wesson or Fancy custom house, but as nice as the colt I dry fired waiting for my Background to go through.  It also came in a really nice pelican case with a reproduction TM.  Is it 100% correct as manufactured?  No, but it's a great collectible US Army marked 1911 that I'm not going to be scared to shoot occasionally.  I think the naysayers really missed the boat on these.

That is really cool.

Congratulations.

That is a fine looking 1911.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

If you think you will ever want a real M1911, this is a great deal.
