You know those plates from the Franklin Mint they sell on late night TV? That's what the replica crowd likes. Collectibles are rare surviving examples of legendary arms that you can't just pick out of a catalog. Replicas are for fools with too much money and not enough sense. Sell it and buy a real shooter with twice the features for half the money.

Take up collecting the real treasures when you can say you are saving a piece of history instead of a tribute edition. Something with real soul, not a certificate of authenticity telling you how there are only 999 others just like in it unfired condition back at the catalog warehouse. For me, that will be when I have all the shooters I can store and money to add a gun wing onto the garage where I keep my survivor Mopars, not the replicars.

Wow Scotty tell us how you really feel! I was able to get this 1911 with no cash trading hands. In fact received this and 3 other firearms for an item I had and no longer used. We both walked away from the table happy as all of these were duplicates in his collection and I no longer had a use for my trade. I will always barter when possible. But I disagree with you on this type of firearm, there is a market (fools or no fools - does not matter - as the market is there)and I have no problem sitting on it for several years to see where the value goes. I am on my second collection of firearms and did quite well when I sold the first round. Thank You Bill Clinton for putting $$$$$ in my pocket.
