    Which 100 year anniversary 1911 have YOU been eyeballing?

    I have always been a fan of the 1911. That being said, I have been seeing a ton of print literature recently debuting the new commemorative or anniversary models coming out for release later this year and early next. It looks like just about everyone has one including Remington which somewhat surprises me (Don't know why)

    Anyway, I have been eagerly awaiting these "special editions" and wanted to solicit some opinions on what other 1911 fans and "collectors" are potentially planning to add to the stable.

    Wilson's anniversary model is very appealing to me but I am sure it will be $$$$$
    2A is not negotiable

    I'll probably get the Colt O1911ANVIII, it's "closer" to the original than any of the others currently offered.

    Gotta go with OD on this. Looking at getting two or three. One his, one hers, and one little his.

    I'll just drag out and dust off the one I already own and carry it for the year. I may add a set of CT laser grips tho.

    Well, if you really want to talk "original" original, then maybe Browning could get some love ....

    'Course, that would work better if Browning made a .45.

    RIA Tactical 1911 is my answer!!!!

    1911 is one of my favorite firearms even with a 100 year history.

    nor the warrior for his glory.

    Any ideas about how many of these will be sold? (or how easy they will be to get?) My 1911 budget will hit critical mass the end of this year, and I was planning on a series 70 reproduction but this sounds tempting also! (granted its not very limited issue and rediculously expensive, I"m going to shoot mine!)

    As far as I know now, the Anniversary Model O1911ANVII, is limited to 750 units, and on the O1911ANVIII, production is limited to orders placed by November 30, 2011.
