I'm thinking about finding a used Rail Gun, get the tan coat, a flat mainspring housing with lanyard loop, triji sights, short trigger, and wilson mag- Yeah, I think it's nutty too but it will be so cool to set it next to some real G.I. pistols :D Hell, might even stamp United States Property for giggles :p
Scratch this mental fart.. as soon as I do one Colt will release it for commercial sale....

There's already a member on the 1911forum that had Colt customize his Rail Gun with a two tan tan/black cerakote job. He had it done before the contract was announced, but it produced a very sharp looking pistol.
So far Colt has been silent about producing a commercial version of the CQBP, but I'm willing to bet we will see one in the near future. If not, Colt's custom shop has some pretty reasonable prices for custom work and they are certainly capable of recreating the CQBP if you want.

Isn't the Kimber Desert Warrior (do I have that right?) about the same thing? I thought I saw a Kimber with a rail and tan colored.........
