Look here...

http://www.americaremembers.com/home.htm

This is a company that sells memorabilia. In the case of their 1911s they sometimes take a base Colt or a Thompson Arms gun, and dress it up some externally and sell them as commemorative pieces.

Keep helping. This question is yet to be answered. Guys I googled and got all the posts being PMed to me or info here.

There are many American Remembers guns which one is it. From my research this model number has entered and exited the roster on at least 4 occations. So which gun this time is on the roster I ask? Colt keeps re-entering this model#.

I have seen people claiming a picture of a 01991Z. No two pictures are the same each have different customizing.

Model 01991Z Custom M1991A1 (USMA 2011) / Steel

The USMA 2011 must be the particular trim package this time.
Does anyone know what the "USMA 2011" trim package looks like.

For some reason I am not understanding you.

When you say...This one just popped up on the list.

I assume you mean the Ca. DOJ list of the guns that can be brought into the state for sale. Is that the list you are speaking of?

When you say...Is this one of the America Remembers guns?
I guess that means that you don't know if it is an America Remembers gun. So why do you raise the idea that it is one? Is America Remembers the ones placing the gun on the list?

If the gun is on the list the manufacturer will be listed. The product code may also be listed.

Colt keeps re-entering this model#.

I don't know what you mean by this and you don't list a model number in your post. If you mean that Colt places a model number on the Ca. list than Colt is the maker and you can ask them about it. They may have a picture on their web site.

So first thing...who placed the gun on the list Colt or America Remembers?

The Model Number of 01991Z is a model number that Colt uses on "several" of its special runs. The America Remembers Series and the "El Tigre" uses this model number. I used to have an "El Tigre" and that's how I know:

(picture obtained online.....I didn't take a picture of mine. Only 200 of these were made.)


There are other ones but I don't remember right now (Have had this headache for 2 days now). Why does Colt use the same model number? I have no idea. If you look at all the guns Colt has on the roster. You'll see 3 models with the same model number: 01991Z


Right now there are 2 new ones on the roster:
01991Z Custom M1991A1 (NRA 2011 Gun of the Year) / Steel Pistol 5" .45 ACP 6/16/2012

According to the phrase in the parenthesis, it's the NRA 2011 Gun of the Year.
