So let me under stand this...If I took the magazine out of my Metro Arms Commander and
engine turned it, it would make my gun worth 40K dollars? Really?
Good grief!

It doesn't even say "Singer" on it anywhere..

Something about color case hardening on a modern gun just seems way out of place to me. And while I can certainly see the utility of a light rail, I do not much care for them either.

If this thread were in the Nighthawk sub-forum, it would be interesting to see what NH enthusiasts thought about it.

Not suggesting a transfer of the thread, as I think Johnny has placed it in the best place...i.e., it's about the gun's aesthetic, not so much its manufacturer.

I have plenty of business pistols, all of them in fact. I wouldn’t spend that kinda money either but I would love to win it in a raffle 😊

Poor thing looks like it got in a fight with a CNC mill and lost! 🤢
I've always enjoyed superb original humor. And yours here is top tier. I'm still smiling.

That is where I fall in this. If I wanted my first 1911, I’d want a purist’s model. I already have classic lines from Wilson, ACW, DW, and Colt. Those grips and that color on the frame are stunning. I could take or leave the front slide “window”, but the rest is just beautiful to my eye. If I saw this on the Gunslinger site for $3500, I’d buy it today.

Or you could have this limited edition Nighthawk Agent 1 - #39 of 50 for just two grand more...

The new Nighthawk Agent 2 VIP! So what if its $8500.00? Easy financing? Lol....
It's a barbecue gun. Invite all your friends to a barbecue and shooting party. Wear that ...
^^^
... to defend your guests because: with all the shootin' goin' on, ain't nobody robbing that party - your iron can stay cool.

It's a bit down the barbecue road for my taste (and means). Twin Remington 1858s: "converted" to metallic cartridges; treated with that gold lamme' coating; abalone grip stocks; Stirling front sight, hammer and trigger (plated); lots of engraving. That'd be more my taste.

Yep, really. That's all you'd have to do. Well, that...and glue a mint-condition 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ to it.
