A specially engraved Colt 1911 celebrating the 100th anniversary of that acclaimed side arm and featuring the Serial Number 1911COLT2011 is featured as a 2011 SHOT Show auction gun.
Typically, a milestone firearm such as this 100th Anniversary 1911 ends up locked away in a museum, a company vault or in a company executive’s private collection. Thanks to Colt and NSSF, however, this highly collectible handgun is being made available to Colt enthusiasts worldwide through auction on GunBroker.com.
The auction opened for bidding on Dec. 17 and will close at 1 p.m. on Jan. 21.
A special auction of two Browning firearms, including a new Model 1911-22 featuring Serial No. 1911 and a new Model Browning that will be announced on GunBroker.com on Jan. 1, will also be featured as SHOT Show auction guns.
The SHOT Show auction is administered by the Hunting Heritage Trust for NSSF.
