    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.

    Post This ALWAYS Really Griped Me.

    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.

    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
    LIMITED EDITION
    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.

    But, give me an accurate beautifully constructed and nicely finished exact copy or a WWII Colt...that would be fine with me.
    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

    I thought that the whole point of buying such a gun was to NEVER fire it, because once you do, you have destroyed the collector's value of it.

    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.
