That one comes up for sale on a regular basis. If the stones are worth anywhere near the appraisal, the owner would be better off to take them out of the grips and sell them loose. He will never find anyone wanting a $500 pistol with a set of $44,000.00 grips.

I've also have seen it before.

It's a joke on the true 1911 lover.

Anyone got some hot tar and some feathers? I've got an idea...

I rarely actually laugh at one of these horrors, but I did on that one! $44,000! He'd be lucky to get $440 for it. Like Johnny said, he'd better part out the jewelry and gold, put some fake pearl grips on the pistol and sell it for what it's worth.

You guys have it all wrong. If you look at the appraisal, you will clearly see that this is a 911A pistol. They are worth more even without the Elvis grips. Maybe the grips are from that flamboyant piano player guys collection. :scratch:

He's not selling the gun, he's selling the grips only.

I think he'd be better off marketing this stuff to the Middle East or Russia. Has anyone seen those golden phones and diamond-crusted cars they manage to sell over there?

That would look sweet hanging around a neck.
