Nice 'paint' work.
Is there really a $$ market for this?
I'm a little sick of seeing so many pink guns, but to each their own.

Good paint jobs.

Nice job. What products did you use?
"Everybody's got a plan, 'til they get hit".
See if Pepto Bismol will sponsor you.
Nice work, but certainly not my cup of tea.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
If it would get my wife interested in guns, I'd buy one.
Unfortunately, the only way it would spark my wife's interest would be if there were an interior decorator attached to it with an open account to do our house.
Know Guns, Know Safety, Know Peace.
No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.
I think I just threw up a little in my mouth. Or, had a seizure or something.
Good work, they look well done, but I don't think I would have painted the sights.
Nice paint job. Thank god my wife favorite color is royal blue!

I don't care for the pink and white one but the pink on black looks very cool.
If you are trying to build this into something to make money watch your fit and finish, I noticed that one of the pins on the pink and white didn't get covered in white and is still black and some of the finish on the pins got messed up probably from putting things back together.
Some of the pins are not yes done, as for the pink it took a while for her to convince me to even order it :/ but ill do anything to make her happy! Fit and finish looks great. As for market it's all word of mouth I've done quite a few guns for the cops around here and all my friends keep sending me people, aside of being a firearms instructor this is more my hobby turning to profit
I know it is real trendy to apply fancy paint jobs to guns, some come from the factory that way, but in my opinion it makes them look too much like toys, which in the heat of combat, in some circumstances could cause problems. But I'm just an old guy, stuck in my ways. A firearm is a deadly weapon, not a fashion statement.
