I am so pissed, I took 3 pics, but the 'puter just ate 2 of them. Here is a Colt 01911 ANVIII that I actually got to put in my hand in Las Vegas last week. The rep said that they are doing 3 versions. Version 1 will be one of a kind. It will go to NRA for a benefit auction. Version 2 is with the gold bling, and level 3 is what most people will get. I was going to try to clean it up, but that's how the 'puter ate the other two pics. Stupid phone doesn't close enough.

Well, it's an interesting looking blur anyway.

At least one can hope--------Gate
I've been thinking about that for about a year now. But knowing my luck it'll nebver pan out. They'll be a couple extra older models to hit the shelves and they'll ask $100 more than what they're worth, because it's 2011.

But I'm trying to stay positive!

The Shooting Wire January 12, 2011

Historic Pair of Brownings 2011 SHOT Show Guns



A one-of-a-kind pair of Browning 1911s, including one model that has been called one of the best-kept secrets in U.S. firearms manufacturing history, will be featured as 2011 SHOT Show auction guns.

The cased pair of 1911s features a brand new .45 caliber Browning Model 1911 announced on New Year's Day on GunBroker.com plus the new .22 caliber Browning 1911-22 announced just a few months ago. Both guns are made in the United States and both feature engraving commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the iconic 1911 and the role of John Moses Browning as the gun's designer.
Early bidding on GunBroker.com had already reached $10,000.00 at noon on Monday, January 10, 2011.

The new Browning .45 Model 1911, is the full-sized 1911 military model. It is made entirely of steel, is finished in a deep high polished blue, and is marked "Browning Arms Co., Morgan, UT U.S.A".

Engraving on the right side of the .45 1911 features John Browning's initials, the dates 1911 and 2011 and the inscription "Celebrating John Browning's Timeless Design". The left side of the .45 features the inscription "John M. Browning Master Inventor" and the historic Serial # 2011451911.

The second gun in the highly collectible pair is a recently introduced Browning Model 1911-22 number featuring serial number 2011221911.

The Browning Model 1911-22 is a newly designed and scaled-down version of the original John Browning-designed .45 caliber 1911. It features a machined aluminum slide and frame with a high gloss blue finish, and checkered double-diamond walnut grips. It has a 4¼Ë barrel and weighs only 15½ ounces.

The left side of the 1911-22 features scroll engraving with a gold banner proclaiming John M. Browning, Master Inventor and a gold Browning Buck Mark. The right side features scroll engraving with a gold banner celebrating the timeless design of John Browning and John Browning's initials in gold. The top of the slide features a gold John M. Browning signature.

The guns are presented together in a special velvet-lined walnut case with a printed glass lid. The top of the lid proclaims the 100th anniversary of the famous John M. Browning design of the 1911. The inside of the lid depicts a collage of photos showing the military use of the 1911 from the past century, over-laid on the original John M. Browning patent.

Both SHOT Show guns will be displayed during the SHOT Show in the Browning Booth, Number 15540.
The SHOT Show auction is administered by the Hunting Heritage Trust for the National Shooting Sports Foundation. As in recent years, bidding for the SHOT Show auction items will take place exclusively on GunBroker.com. GunBroker.com is a partner of both of the National Shooting Sports Foundation and the Hunting Heritage Trust. Bidding on the Brownings began on January 1, 2011 and will close at 4:00 pm Eastern time on Friday, January 21, 2011.

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

i would seriously consider the browning 1911-22 if it was full size same features as the 45. so far no one has made a decent full sized conversion to 22lr or a full sized 22lr 1911 that is worth a damn.

This GSG 1911 .22lr comes pretty damn close!

I sure like mine, it's a performer! YMMV
