    It looks nicer than some of the other 100 year versions, but too much $ for me...

    Centennial guns are not my thing, but that looks nice. I like how the slide is chamfered at the bottom.

    I ordered two of them today. It looks as though they are going to be built 5 at a time, so they will filter into the market throughout the year. I like the fact they are going to be blued. Looks like a pretty nice 100 year anniversary pistol....

    I was told it could be March or it could be November. In other words, I have no earthly idea when they will be done, but they more than likely will not be done at the same time.

    Good looking gun. I think I'll get one and have it flush crowned, golfballed, do a melt job, have it hardchromed and slap some Horned Lizards on it. :rofl:

    We ordered one as well and John mentioned the same wait times! Im sure they will take their time with these guys! Just like they do on the Supergrades.
    It is a very classy looking gun! Could do without the speed cuts, but whatever!

    Supposedly, these are going to be Supergrade quality pistols. Big difference compared to a Brown at half the cost. :) I am not a huge fan of the roll marks, either, but I figure I have to own at least one Anniversary 1911....It might as well be a Wilson......that is, unless Alex decides to do something, then I will be all over that like a hobo on a ham sandwich. :)

    Like I wrote in the OP I like it but this one does it for me little more. The roll marks on the EB just look better to me, and of course the it being half the price also sweetens the deal for me.

    Ok most here have said I wish they did this or that. I for one don't. I like looking at the different interpretations of the Centennial 1911s by all the makers producing them.(except that abomination that Kimber is try to pass off as a Centennial edition) Now you offer them for sale and let the customers make changes then it's no longer a "special edition" it's just a 1911 ordered to your spec like everything else they offer. Plus the best part of just about any 1911 is the fact that you can change it around to suit your needs if you so choose to. Just my thinking.
