besides engraving the gun, they actually engraved the magazines as well

Its a beautiful gun!! I dont really understand why they went with adjustable sights though? I would have opted for something a bit more traditional

That's nice, but I think the holster wear would hurt the resale value!!

I agree on the sights especially since most buyers wouldn't even shoot this pistol.

I know I wouldn't!

I just can't do engraving on a handgun.

I certainly appreciate the work and skill that goes into it, but its just not for me at all.

i'd only buy it if it had Tacticool engravings on it and the grips had the Punisher logo in ebony inlay.

I have to admit that I am upset that they did not do a more unique finish for a centennial model of such significance. HIGHLY disappointing.

It's sad to say, but I haven't seen a 1911 Centennial model by anyone that I've even kinda sorta liked. :dunno:Especially for some of the ridiculous ass prices that I've seen them going for.

$2,495 list price is pretty reasonable. That is a classy looking pistola.

I wonder what the actual street price is? i think I am going to email George and ask.

Quack

You are correct Sir. I gotta retract my original statement in my first post. That's the best looking Centennial edition I've seen yet. And I'm not an ivory grip fan. I'd swap the grips on it, but I'd take it. :cool:

Is there going to be a limited run of theses or are they going to make as many as they can through out the 1 year run?

I just got the email back from George I like the price and the build time is 60-90 days. I think I am going to wait to order one if I order one. I want an Ed Brown anyways. Oh no I am not going to get any sleep tonight.:crying:

+1.....this gun looks more like the "Ed Hardy" Edition.

For a Centennial edition, why doesn't someone just make a straight up repro of a original 1911? Call me crazy. Perhaps some special rollmarks on it at best to note the occasion. This isn't quite as fugly as Kimber's version, but it's close.

I don't get the engraving...does that make it special? Engraving makes just about any gun look like crap in my opinion to be quite blunt.

Wouldn't that just be a Springfield Mil-Spec or a regular old Colt.

I have to agree. It seems like if they engrave, especially a 1911, they always over do it. Make it gaudy looking.
I think that a little engraving done tasefully in the corner of the rear of the slide and maybe a touch in the front of the slide would look a lot better than covering it like this one.
If I had a custom build I might want my initials engraved somewhere and maybe with a scroll work or something as long as it was done with some class.

in my opinion there's only 2 things i'd change on that gun.

1) that 3 hole trigger would have to go. those belong on race guns, not on show pieces.

2) the ivory is a little too plain, it needs just a touch of scrimshawed scrollwork around the screw holes, or maybe a set of subtle scrimshawed double diamonds. as they are now they stand out from the rest of the gun and need something to tie them to it.
