It won't be inexpensive, but I'm sure it'll be suh-weet !!
My mind is like a steel trap ... Rusty, and illegal in 37 states.

This is the wish list.  You may wish for what you want; even if not thought possible.    ;D

Even though it is not possible, I wish we could endeavor to limit our posts to one or two a day.

True; not possible!    ;D   However, you can still make the wish, as you have.    :)

Maybe not Tracker.  Karl is a big fan of the 1911, and has talked about doing one at various times.  It would have to be pretty high end though to distinguish it from all the other 1911s out there.

I don't think its in the works at all -- too much competition right now.  But don't rule it out in our lifetimes!   ;)

Speaking of which - if anyone seriously wants a micro 1911 in 45, Terry Tussy is THE Man to see.  
It will be custom, and the smallest you've ever seen!

As I said, Karl is interested in 1911s and has talked about making one.  Yes, it would be different than anything Rohrbaugh has done to date, but its a different gun for a different purpose.  I think Karl would see a 1911 as a competition gun rather than a carry gun.

However, its hard to find a market any more saturated than the 1911 market.

Very true, possibly only the Kalashnikov and the countless variations of that man's masterpiece could top the 1911's over-saturation.

There are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many 1911's out there getting in line would be tough AND expensive.
