I'm kinda curious about viewpoints here. Maybe I'm strange but I like my special personal property to be distinctive. I don't want my stuff looking just like everyone elses stuff.

My car a factory car but I did alot of little things to make it "my" car. It's lowered a tad, big custom wheels, super-dark tinted, nice stereo, etc. Even if the factory made 10,000 of my car, nobody elses is just like mine.

I want my handgun to be the same. I don't want my handgun to look like anyone elses even if the factory makes 10,000 of them. I don't want it to look "factory".

Anyways, there are a few things that I can think of that can make a handgun distinctive but I'd like to know what else is availalble and maybe see pictures of what has been done.

Here's a list of what i've seen:
unmarked slides (no roll-marks etc)
custom engraving
custom millwork (front strap, serrations, etc)
damascus slides
various upgraded small parts

I'll post a few pics of nice things that I've found. I apologize if they belong to anyone on the forum here. I'm collecting pics of distinctive handguns.

I'd like additional suggestions and pics of other distinctive handguns. Lastly, I want distinctive but not guady, so no gold plating.
