    besides engraving the gun, they actually engraved the magazines as well

    Its a beautiful gun!! I dont really understand why they went with adjustable sights though? I would have opted for something a bit more traditional

    That's nice, but I think the holster wear would hurt the resale value!!

    I agree on the sights especially since most buyers wouldn't even shoot this pistol.

    I know I wouldn't!

    I just can't do engraving on a handgun.

    I certainly appreciate the work and skill that goes into it, but its just not for me at all.

    i'd only buy it if it had Tacticool engravings on it and the grips had the Punisher logo in ebony inlay.

    I have to admit that I am upset that they did not do a more unique finish for a centennial model of such significance. HIGHLY disappointing.

    I'd rather save $4,500 and lose the engraving....

    It's sad to say, but I haven't seen a 1911 Centennial model by anyone that I've even kinda sorta liked. :dunno:Especially for some of the ridiculous *** prices that I've seen them going for.

    $2,495 list price is pretty reasonable. That is a classy looking pistola.

    You are correct Sir. I gotta retract my original statement in my first post. That's the best looking Centennial edition I've seen yet. And I'm not an ivory grip fan. I'd swap the grips on it, but I'd take it. :cool:
