So Chris, did they tell you when you can take the tour?  Will deuce be accompanying you?  Will you have this setting on your desk at work or on the mantel at home?

That could be interesting.  Don't think the real serious bidders have even begun.  Most time auction things run wild the last few day, especially the last few hours.  Sure some "Daddy Warbucks" who is a 1911 collector/nut will win at all costs. 

My guess is 100k.  Might be crazy, but then, people are crazy.

OOPS  I cant buy that one it was produced in 2010 not 2011. Roll on Floor Laughing
Now it would be pretty cool to buy a 1911 that is produced in 2011 so you can bet every company making 1911 guns will have a super duper version for the 2011 year.

Were you planning on picking up that 2911 in person?  I imagine in 900 years something should be able to be worked out. Skull Wink

Man... Its gonna be fun watching what this one ends up going for! Gunbroker has the 15 minute rule, so there wont be any last minute sniping, but I'd imagine it's gonna be an all out war on the last day! I'll hang it out there and guess it will sell for 280,000.

I think we'll see alot of commemorative 1911's this year.  I just received an Ed Brown pamphlet today and they're asking $2500-$6500 depending on options.

I wish I could afford a Wilson Combat... it must be nice to blow tons of money on a Colt like that one.
