Looks like he hired someone with the shakes to do the beveling along the lower edge of the slide, and the edges of the "port". Even if I liked the design, and I don't, the sloppy detail work is a big turn-off.

That pistol is just plain "Fugly". The sad part is that he probably paid someone an arm and a leg to get it to look like that........:barf:

I just saddens me to see something like that done to a fine pistol. :bawling: If they are going to trash a gun like that, they should have sent it to me before doing anything to it; I would have given it a good loving home.

Somebody deserves a beating over that. NO self-respecting gunsmith should EVER follow some idiots wishes to butcher a gun like that. Just ain't right. I don't care how much money the fool has. I've met tattoo artists with more class than that.

Quote from seller's description: THIS GUN WILL LOOK LIKE THIS FOREVER.

That is truly unfortunate news. Probably because no one in their right mind will buy it. Maybe this is one pony that should be put out to pasture.

Well..... maybe once that slide is thrown away and replaced with a new one it won't be so bad. But not for $2500.

I think we reached the end of the road regardling useful 1911 modifications about 10 years ago. Nowadays the only way to make something new is to make it completely ridiculous, like SIS-shaped serrations and other monstrocities like this one. :rolleyes:

But but but, it's a $2500 gun, guys! It says so right there! He wouldn't lie, right? It's a priceless one-of-a-kind collectors item! Right?

This is one time that a Colt would look better as a manhole cover. His handle should be GunsmithingOnlyEludesMe.

Looks like a homemade POS project to me. Sad thing is, some goofus will probably pay an arm and a leg for this pistol.:barf:
