    I'm looking to get both of these for my collection. Any advices on what other limited Colts should I be looking for?

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

    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.

    It's a snake. Or so I believe.

    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.
