    OK, I like "fancied" up guns. How have you fancied yours?

    I shoot 1911's primarily. I have two stainless steel Springfields and two "green/grey" Kimbers. I like nice grips especially. Does anyone have pictures of their "fancied" up guns that they want to show? I'd like to see. (If there is a purist out there that likes their 1911's black with brown grips, I am sorry - I like my guns to look as good as they shoot!).

    The only fancy looking 1911 I've owned was my Brown. I own DW, Nighthawk, Benny Hill, Springfield, etc., but the only thing changed are the grips or the VBOB going out for hard Hat or IonBond in a few weeks. My Benny hill, though completely custom, is probably the least fancy. you can see tooling marks like crazy, funny cuts, etc., but it makes my nighthawk feel like a $300 off brand.

    The Brown was an amazing blue over stainless with Gatorback Blasted Black Canvas grips.

    Not a fancy 1911, but it's mine.

    P3AT with custom engraved slide and my own homemade grip.

    My recent "fancying up" job on my Kimber Tactical Ultra. I ditched the mag well and added VZ thin grips...
