    You know what's funny?

    I ran into my local FFL this morning by sheer coincidence. He said if I could live with the color, he has XD40s for $490 with the 12 round magazines.

    Tempting but if I were to bite I'd pay the extra $20 and get the black one... it'd be worth it.

    Compared with this doesn't seem like all that much of a deal.

    Got my interest at this price, $399 + $19 shipping + $20 for my dealer = Pretty doggone good deal.

    Might rather have the 5" though....in GREEN!

    Actually that $490 he quoted is pretty fair.

    If I were to buy one from that auction, I'd pay the $399 for the gun, $19 for shipping, $30 for a trasfer fee, then figure $35 tax...

    I remember seeing the old 1911 Springfields back in '90 at the national matches. day glow green, hot pink and orange. Somehow , O.D. green doesn't seem that bad. On the other hand all the HK commercial rifles in gray sure looks ugly too.

    Blued or stainless is the way for me.

    Blued or Stainless is fine. But on guns with poly frames... I like the green ones.
    I also like the Coyote Brown ones.

    Remember the Charles Daly BUL imports? They had yellow, red, and fusia. Friend of mine still has a fusia one. I think it's pretty cool. Variety is good.

    I seem to remember in the late 80s that some company was doing a big business tiger striping and woodlands camoing 1911's. I remember they sold them in the old American Survival Guide and SWAT back when Chuck Taylor was involved in it.

    Before his gunsmith ran off and left him, Mad Dog knives was offering custom 1911s and Czeds in tiger stripe too.

    Don't forget the multiple colors of grips available for the Kel-Tec P32. I think now they only have black, grey, dark blue, OD Green, and maybe white. You used to be able to get sky blue, pink, and purple, too. The last gun show I went to one table had a P32 with a dark blue grip and the hard chrome slide. It didn't look too bad, but I'll stick with my black grip and HC slide.

    Speaking of OD green, I did just receive my custom grips for two of my CZ-52's. For the military grey-parkerized one I got OD grips, and black grips for the new chrome CZ. The original grips are a rather nasty brown.

    I think my local shop is wanting a little extra for them too, they arent rare around here, I keep seeing the same ones in the showrooms.

    Id rather have a black frame just because if you go to refinish the slide you have more choices, like silver, grey, etc etc. OD green and a stainless slide just doesnt work.

    cls12vg30 - related to your CZ-52's ... I have found on mine - std except for different recoil spring - the Hogue Handalls make a huge difference to feel of that grip - fills hand better. Buggers to fit initially!

    Well, perhaps you could paint it like this.
