I am looking to buy a S&W Perf. Ctr. .45 CQB. Has anyone seen any for sale lately? Also, information for this gun is hard to come by, any input on where to find write ups or other data would be helpful.

I have a SW CQB 45 2 tone alloy and it is the best investment I ever made. I bought it used ($800) not knowing the history and I lucked out.
there are several on gunsamerica.com and the all black for $699 is a steal.
I am currently looking for the all stainless version and have not had any luck. I had the opportunity to buy one (NIB) at a Houston Texas gun show for $900 and I passed it up (poor police officer). I should have just thrown it on the credit card and tried to explain to the spouse that this was an investment (fat chance she would have believed it).
anyway I call SW customer svc (phone number on the internet) and they sent me all the flyers they had on their PC models, one being the CQB. also on American Handgunner, they had a write up on the SW CQB. go to search on your computer and type in "smith wesson CQB 45" and that article will be in one of the choices.
I am looking for an all stainless version to back up my alloy. I wear my CQB for detective carry in a Aker or High Noon holster. it carrys flat and light enough for all day.
should you find one and know where an all stainless version is, email me at email@example.com.
I took this pistol to an instructor school where I fired approximately 1000 rounds. I had no malfunctions, if fed emptys on various drills and "spanked" sigs, h k, glock and 1911's for the "Top Gun" award. they all thought it was a sig.
If you find one, make sure the frame to slide fit is tight and your barrel fits snugley in the spherical bushing. if these areas are abnormally loose, the gun may have been shot alot and not maintained properly.
there is another article of 40,000 rounds in a PC 40 that has no loss in accuracy.
