    You'll have to Google this in order to find it. We don't allow links to certain auction-based gun sales sites here.

    Searching "1911 Master Engraved Colt 100th Anniv. Edition" brought it up as the first result for me.

    Different strokes, I reckon - I could buy a lot of firepower for $45K and wouldn't have to worry about shootin' 'em! LOL

    Ya, I confess, I bought it.
    Dropped it on the asphalt gettin' out of
    the pickup at the range, shot about 700rnds
    of cheap dirty ammo thru it.
    I probably should clean it someday.
    I'm thinkin' of gettin' a bluing kit and doin' it at home.
    I think I'm using too coarse of sandpaper on it though......

    I think Frank Brownell might own this. I was talking to him the other day, and he said he bought the 100th Anniversay Colt pistol in an auction. I have no reason to disbelieve him.
    Nice gun. George Spring is a fantastic engraver. The workmanship is as good as it gets.

    Roughly $44k more than it's worth.

    Worth is in the eye of the beholder.
