Well, I would have bought it, but it doesn't have front strap checkering and after I had that done, I'd have to sink some more money in it to have it hardchromed.

Read the description boys. Not justifying it, but not totally off base if you're a 1911 history nut.

That may be in your mind but I don't think it matters. There are some crazy Colt guys out there with deep pockets. The price has shot up 1,700 since I made that last reply. I can't imagine what it will be in 32 days.

We should start a thread and see who can get closest to the winning bid!

Wow that is crazy, 11G's already! This is by far going to be the most sought after 100th ann of them all. Im sure the WC will be up there though, it wont go that high in price by far, but what else would people rather have if they couldnt have a Colt?

I think it's a great opportunity for the right collector. Most times items like this go straight into the company museum.

So, is the gun itself just a $17,000 GI 1911 with a pretty finish and a unique serial number? Or is it a tuned, perfected shooter customized to the highest level?

This specially engraved Colt 1911 celebrating the 100th anniversary of that acclaimed side arm and featuring the Serial Number 1911COLT2011 is a featured 2011 SHOT Show auction gun.

Typically, a milestone firearm such as this 100th Anniversary 1911 ends up locked away in a museum, a company vault or in a company executive's private collection. But thanks to Colt and the National Shooting Sports Foundation, this highly collectible handgun is being made available to Colt enthusiasts world-wide.

This special Colt boasts unique engraving, grips and features to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Model 1911 and the Colt Company's role in the history of that iconic firearm.

The left side of the gun features a prominent and powerful hand inlaid gold inscription, "100 YEARS AT AMERICA'S SIDE" and a gold-inlaid Rampant Colt.

The right side features large gold inlays including "1911-2011" and the serpentine "Colt". In addition, the serial number "1911COLT 2011" is hand-engraved and inlaid with gold.

All engraving work is by Colt Custom Shop Master Engravers, Steve Kamyk and George Spring. Engraving style is American Scroll with "B" (50%) coverage. All metal surfaces are polished and finished in Colt Royal Blue.

The gun also includes specially designed ivory grips with gold-plated Colt 1911 Anniversary Medallions.

Special Bonus Trip to Colt

As a very special bonus, the high bidder will be invited to visit the Colt Factory in Hartford, Connecticut on March 29, 2011-the official 100th Anniversary of the U.S. Army's approval of the 1911 as the U.S. Army sidearm. Winner will be given a private tour of the factory, will have lunch with Colt Management, receive a package of special Colt logo items and collectibles and will have photos taken with the Colt engravers. During this visit, the high bidder will visit the Colt Historical Department and will be presented with an official document authenticated his Colt as the one and only 100th Anniversary 1911 featured as the 2011 SHOT Show gun and featuring the historic 1911COLT2011 Serial number. And to top off this special package, the high bidder will have the opportunity to have his or her initials engraved on spare mainspring housing as a keepsake or to have installed on their 1911. Hotel and travel included but restrictions may apply.

The gun will be displayed in the Colt Booth at the SHOT Show in a custom-made case by Brookfield Case. The case will also become the property of the high bidder.

All proceeds from the auction of this historic firearm will benefit the programs to further the Hunting Heritage Trust's programs to further America's hunting and shooting sports heritage.

The SHOT Show auction is administered by the Hunting Heritage Trust for the National Shooting Sports Foundation.
