    So, we all know that the greatest pistol ever made has already passed it's 100th year anniversary of craftsmanship.

    Next year will be 100 years since it was inducted into military history, become a benchmark & measuring stick to every other semi automatic pistol ever to be produced.

    Next year.....

    Next year??

    With time to save some cash, just in case....:rolleyes:

    Does anyone know if any of the quality shops are producing a 2011 Anniversary Edition 1911??

    As I am the head Nighthawk rep here, I have contacted them and am waiting a response.

    Cane - Anything from Colt?

    Anyone heard ANYTHING??

    Links would be a plus......

    I haven't heard a peep from anyone and SHOT has not surfaced any rumors as of now.

    I guess I need to be proactive.

    I'm on it! [​IMG]

    Good catch JD. Maybe we'll be in better financial shape and I'll be able to pick something special up.

    Maybe we can all pitch in, buy one, and Stanley Cup it among the contributing members.

    My idea was to get an inside track on an official 100th Edition and give everyone some time to save if they are interested.

    I am hoping for something TRULY worthy of the name, the history and the heritage. Even if it's just a Colt. :rolleyes::cool:

    Depending on what we find out Gate, I might be one of those guys. :cool::eek:

    While the Nighthawks will probably be safe, you never know about the rest of the arsenal.

    I would sure love to get a top notch, Larry Vickers ( or other ) approved 1911 that is built for speed and getting the job done. *drools*

    I'd love to own one, but I know they are going to be expensive....then I would be too afraid to shoot it.

    I tell you what, I'll help you fund yours...I'll buy that 460 kit from ya':cool:

    Sorry bro. stalkingbear has purchased that .460 kit several months ago.

    But, I know where you can get a stainless one for a Colt that is completely worthless in the rest of the pony realm. :rolleyes:

    Response from Nighthawk

    Okay, so I got a response concerning the 2011 Anniveresary Model from the good folks at Nighthawk. Unfortunately, there isn't much to report. Here is the letter:

    So, at least something is in the works. But what? :eek::eek:

    No doubt a double-stack polymer 1911 with the sights mounted gansta style!!!

    That sounds like JD's own design.

    He could have at least given a price range so that we could start saving our pennies. ;)

    I asked that question in a follow up e-mail and he said that it would be in line with current Nighthawk pistols. Now, while they are not cheap, they are one hell of a good piece of kit. So for about that same money, to get their 100th Anniversary Edition would be pretty cool in my book.

    I don't know of any Nighthawks under 2K. Or am I wrong?
