    It's only 5 years away.
    I suppose we will get a whole lot of commemorative issues and limited editions but will there be such a thing as a whole new gun?

    A Colt 2011?
    Any suggestions on what that might be?

    I'll start with a $10 bet on it being a polymer 10mm.

    Makes no difference - I just added a Kimber Ultra CDP II Custom Shop to my collection and I can't imagine any thing that could be done to improve upon it.

    A work of art that feels perfect in my hand and makes me look better then I am (much like my wife). What could be better - a rhetorical question.

    Peace and blessings,

    It'd be nice to see one made to JMB's original specs, in every regard.

    Not necessarily an improvement on the existing format, I was thinking a total revamp.
    As far from the original design as the FiveseveN or the PX4 Storm, something like that.
    I guess I'm going for the next gen of 1911s... 2011s.

    I concur, but with good original mags.

    Why wait? How about a Colt Model 1908 Pocket Hammerless .380 in 2008!

    Probably, the Dems to ban them :barf: :mad: :fire: :cuss:

    Maybe a plastic-framed 1911? New materials and Technology with an old-style feel and legendary reliability? And linkless.

    I might just wait until 2011 to buy my first 1911, just "because". Unless the Anti's start getting antsy.

    You have no idea how happy that would make me.
    Why do they NOT make that pistol, still?

    I hope so.
