Also interested in these but no info on them regarding production volume:

Colonel Colt (by Lew Horton) http://www.yothinfirearms.com/Handguns/Colt/God-Created-Man.html
Colt National Match Royal Stainless Gold Cup TALO Exclusive
Colt 1911 Presentation Grade (http://www.yothinfirearms.com/Handguns/Colt/Colt-1911-Presentation-Grade.html)
Colt El Caballo Deoro Maximo (http://www.yothinfirearms.com/Handguns/Colt/El-Caballo-Deoro-Maximo.html)

No advice from my post. The Sam Colt Signature by Lew Horton looks like great option.

The Colt Tier III is my idea of a canebrake Centennial 1911.

The 2011 Centennial Edition?

The rest on your list are way too baroque for my taste.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

In this post it refers to what I (canebrake) would want in a Centennial 1911.

The term canebrake is what us southern boys call a Timber Rattlesnake.

Crotalus horridus, the "timber rattlesnake" or Canebrake.
