gungunsguns.net offers a round-up of special edition 1911s commemorating the 100th anniversary of JMB’s meisterstuck. Price-wise, the pistols range from Auto-Ordnance’s $658 100th Anniversary 1911PKZ to Ed Brown’s $6995 Classic Custom Centennial Edition [above]. All of them have engravings on the barrel—so that the owner and his BFFs know that, yup, this is a centennial special. I’m a big fan of stark minimalism, but I appreciate the humor / personalization possibilities inherent in this genre. How about “John Moses Browning Wuz Here” or “Still Lethal After All These Years”? And if we’re going there, what would you like engraved on any pistol barrel? I’ve always wanted a gun with an arrow and the words “Point in this direction.” How about you?
