    Unertl makes a top notch 1911. They are a military optics company, but build some great pistols. They run a little over $2k.

    Just as I had suspected! A truly impressive group of wheelguns.

    And the rest of the semi-autos are just as impressive.

    A few questions for you:
    What generation is the SAA?
    What does the Century 100 shoot? Something tells me it's not a rimfire!
    Between the DE, 460, 455, and the Alaskan, which is more punishing?

    I especially like your choice in non 1911 45's. There was a recent thread here asking for the top 3 non 1911 45's, and 2 of the three I suggested are 2 of the 3 you have (the 945 & the 220). And I really can't fault your HK 23 - I just don't have any knowledge or experience with them.

    And now for the critique: I was a little disappointed with the Colt revolvers. I thought every Colt collector had to have at least one snubbie snake gun. Awesome Colts, especially the Pythons.

    On a side note, I guess you don't have any long guns, huh?

    Well there's only 80+ handguns. There's got to be some long guns.

    Many thanks for your compliments.

    First question: 3rd gen

    Second question: 45-70 Government. Its a six shot, not five, like the modern BFR.

    Third question: None of them. The Raging Bull is a 500mag.

    No guys. I used to have a bunch of long guns. All I have now is a Ruger 10/22, SKS, Remington 700 .30-06, and a Mossberg Shotgun.

    I sold almost all my long guns. I'm a handgun guy through and through.

    I have two 1911s on order and another couple that I want. After that, I should be done with the handguns. I may pick up a few more long guns that I've been eyeing. Still, handguns are my thing.

    Thanks. The Python is my favorite revolver of all time. I bet you would have never guessed that.

    I guess I overlooked that one. I thought it a lesser caliber. I read a thread on THR a while back about an American Derringer in 45-70. Talk about punishing! I have one in 45LC/.410, and it's a handful.

    So how's the recoil on the Century 100 compare to the other big bores? I bet with those grips the Century isn't very pleasant to shoot. The way cowboy guns tend to roll on you, I wouldn't be surprised if you find yourself looking down the barrel after firing it.

    Depends on the ammo. Standard 45-70 isn't bad. The revolver weighs almost six pounds unloaded and is a full pound and a half heavier than the S&W 460 or Desert Eagle.

    The 45-70 magum loads have some recoil, but I'm not recoil shy and have learned to control it. Its a very strong revolver. The cylinder is massive and the frame is a bronze maganese alloy.

    Check it out. The cylinder is so massive, that the 45 caliber bores look small. Remember, its a six shooter.

    Thanks.

    The PC945 is my favorite non 1911 45ACP. That's probably becuase its so closely related. The trigger is amazing and better than all but my best few 1911s. Performance Center handguns are the real deal.

    As for the Mark 23, its more a novelty piece. Its a good shooter, but very big and somewhat clumsy. I like it though. Its a very high quality pistol.

    HO-LY COW!!

    The word "impressive collection" doesn't quite cover it. How/where do you store them all?

    OK... now how about the long guns?

    Edit: Sorry... was slow on the reply and somebody beat me to it.

    I agree, they are nice. I have 3 of them: A PC460 6.5", a PC627 5" 357, and a twin to your stainless PC1911. The PC1911 is awesome, but some of yours are in a whole nuther league.

    That Century is massive! It makes that SAA look like a toy. And 6 rounds of 45-70 is intimidating.

    Love the 945. My third choice of non 1911 45's was the SW99. I love mine. I'm a big fan of the Walther/S&W 99 series pistols, they're awesome guns and a good value. Looks like you need one (or 12)!

    I have two 1911's on order and another couple that I want
    I'm curious. With such an impressive collection of 1911's already in your possession, what's next? What does the guy that has everything in a 1911 pine for? Maybe a micro? Or a second LB, or Nighthawk, or RRA? How about a race gun? Hey, maybe this would make a good poll. OK, I put some thought into this, and I'm guessing a second Nighthawk, a race gun (of unknown origin - but maybe STI?), and a 3" to 3 1/2" mini. How did I do? What do I win?

    The Performance Center 1911 is a very good pistol for the money. Overall though, my three favorite 1911s so far are the Wilson Super Grade, RRA Limited Match, and Springfield TGO1.

    I thought you might ask what the last four are that I want. I will say, I'm very stuborn when it comes to the 1911. All of mine are 45ACP, single action, single stack, and all between a 4"-5" barrel length. I like the traditional stuff. That rules out the STI/SVI 2011s and micro 1911s.

    Besides, I have other double stack race pistols in the Tanfoglio, X-Five, Pardini, and Sphinx.

    The first 1911 I ordered is a Pistol Dynamics Signature. It should be the crown jewel of my 1911 collection. Actually, of my entire handgun collection, for that matter. These are full custom guns built by Paul Liebenberg. I order mine in December after speaking with Paul for an hour. I specified every detail and it is being built from scratch in house on a Pistol Dynamics frame. I got all the bells and whistles. Total price with a full hard chrome finish was $4500, which will make it my most expensive 1911. The problem is that wait time is 14-16 months. I won't have it until this time next year, but the wait will be worth it.

    http://www.pistoldynamics.com/Signature_1.html


    I also ordered an Ed Brown Classic Custom last month. I should have it in a couple weeks. Its Ed Brown's top of the line 1911. I ordered the two tone version. The only option I got was a magwell. It comes standard with everything else.

    http://edbrown.com/htmlos.cgi/00285....95073620861141


    I also want Dan Wesson's new Valor. Its built on a forged frame, unlike their other 1911s. I really like the look of it and I like DW's 1911 to begin with. Its their highest priced model, but not too bad. Price is slightly less than a Springfield TRP, about $1600 retail, but a good deal less in stores.

    I think they look outstanding.




    The last 1911 I'm looking to add to my collection is a Signature Series from Volkmann. They have been in business about a year, but I hear nothing but great stuff. I spoke to the owner for a while and know the exact options I want. Its a beautiful 1911.

    http://www.volkmanncustom.com/signature-series.htm


    That's it. They are the models I want to finish my collection off. Like I said, the Pistol Dynamics and Ed Brown are already ordered. The EB should be here very soon.

    You mentioned a second Les Baer, but I already have two, the SRP and Concept V. They are in two different photos.

    I would have a hard time picking my favorites from your 1911 collection. You have many worthy of a "favorite" label. And more on the way!

    And dude, you're not just a "handgun guy". You, my friend, are a connoisseur. A connoisseur of fine 1911's. And I was way off on predicting the next acquisitions. Waaaaaaay off. Not even close. I was predicting like a mere handgun guy, but you are taking your collection to the next level. The Big 3 (Ed Brown Classic, Volkman Signature, and Pistol Dynamics Signature) are exquisite. I have never heard of the latter two. They are all impressive, but that Volkman Signature on the home page, with hard chrome and tru-ivory is stunning!

    I tried to look up the Valor, but CZ/DW didn't have it on their website. I'm sure it's a fine pistol, but I doubt it's in the same class as the others. But that's ok, throw CZ a bone.

    I'm looking forward to seeing pictures as the new ones come in.

    Great collection of guns there. I was really impressed with the 9's and than after that it was all gravy. The 380's and misc was just icing. Something to aspire to I guess.
