    I saw this on TOS and thought it would be cool to try to keep up with the Centennial models. Maybe compile a picture thread through out the year.

    ED Brown's 2 offerings.

    I think thats all of them for now. The Ed Brown EE is my favorite of the bunch. Somebody at Kimber should be fired for approving that thing.:ack::puking:

    I look at that thing at least once a week and forgot all about it. I like that one too but out of my price range for sure.

    Your Colt pic really isn't their Anniversary offering. That's the ANVI of which only one was made. The ANVII and ANVIII are their "offerings".

    Yup, that's the one on Gunbroker going for over 80K last I checked. They are making 750 of the ANVII and ANVIII's can be ordered until this November.

    The Ed Brown is awesome but what the classic custom centennial costs is just crazy. Either would be an amazing heirloom piece though.

    They just aren't for me.

    I'm not one for special editions.

    That is what I was thinking until I saw the Ed Brown Executive. Nice and simple not overly done. Something that you could take to the range once in a while and not be scared to shoot.

    I like the ANVIII the most. Original look without the freaking engraving and gold crap. Don't like the rollmarks though, but it is a centennial after all.
