I think a blue frame would help a lot. Or black chrome. Shouldn't it come with some rattlesnake boots?
I do like the grips -- not sure how they'd hold up, though.
It looks real nice but for that price I could get 2 normal 1911's or maybe 3 or 4 Glocks.
Where these "limited edition" and 50th ANNIVERSARY guys always make a Boo Boo.
See the banner where it's engraved RATTLESNAKE LEGACY ADDITION ?
If the firearm is a Rattlesnake Legacy Addition then the actual words
"RATTLESNAKE LEGACY EDITION" should appear on the display case and NOT on the actual firearm. :mad:
OR IF on the firearm then - hidden under the grips.
In other words the actual firearm might have a BLANK Banner where the owner could have his own name hand engraved on the firearm.
So if I was designing say... a "High Dollar" John Wayne Commemorative Firearm...I sure as Hell would not have "John Wayne Commemorative" engraved all over the doggone firearm.
I personally WOULD design and style a beautiful firearm that John Wayne would have been proud to own - or exactly copy one that he actually DID own - and then just very small make the Serial Number something like: Wayne000129.
I sure as heck would not print
John Wayne Commemorative - all over the dad blamed firearm. How totally STUPID is that?
Who would want a COLT WWII Exact Replica firearm that had the words:
WWII Commemorative Colt Limited Edition Firearm engraved on it...not me. :nono:
But, give me an accurate beautifully constructed and nicely finished exact copy or a WWII Colt...that would be fine with me. :yup:
But, Not a Colt with THE BIG RED "1" LIMITED EDITION roll-marked all over it.
Looks nice, but Sandy (my Stainless Steel Springer GI) is shiney enough for a BBQ gun
For that kind of money I think I'd just get a Wilson, or an ED Brown...Thanks for showing though
would somebody please pass me the pepto-bismol?
That said, I would always be bugged by the "never-having-tested-it," so there's no way I would even leave it accessible for defense or anything. Just like I won't buy a new gun and then carry it until it's been proven at the range.
That is a sweet looking gun, and if my collection were a little bigger and my wallet a little thicker, I would surely buy one.
I would plunk down some change for those grips though. Those would make just about any 1911 look good.
To me a BBQ gun would be a Hi dollar custom gun by one of the best known custom makers with some nice scroll work, not a gussied up commemortive piece. A BBQ gun should work and be dependable, one never knows when your party might be crashed by the bad guys.
