Colt donated a gorgeously engraved Colt 1911 pistol to the NRA Foundation, the NRA’s charitable organization, who are auctioning it off at GunBroker.com. The current bid is over $33,000.
I think the gun is beautiful and I applaud Colt’s generosity to the NRA Foundation, but I do think it is unfair to be producing a second ’100th Anniversary Edition’ after auctioning off another 1911 that was said to be “One-of-a-Kind” earlier this year and selling it for over $83,000! The ‘Factory Engraved 100th Anniversary Colt 1911′ sold for $83,025 in January. It had the serial ’1911COLT2011′. The gun being auctioned off by the NRA has the serial ’1911COLT001′. At first glance the casual observer would not even seen the different between the serials.
What do you think? Sound off in the comments.
