The best I can tell they made very few. I found it listed in blue book said made starting in 1982. I can not find any for sale right now on gUn brOker or auction arms. I found some more factory mags at cdnn.

Blue Book is wrong. Colt couldn't have made any pistols chambered in 40S&W in 1982, 40S&W didn't come out commercially till 1990 and first gun chambered in was the S&W4006 in same year and the 40S&W is based on the 10mm that wasn't developed till 1984.

But you're correct they are very rare, from reading on the 1911 forums, Colt only made the Commander in 40S&W 1 yr but nobody remembers the year, just that it was right before Colt reduced their civilian line up of pistols to focus on military sales and split into 2 companies, so late 1990's?
