    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    That pun deserves a spanking for being bad.

    I'd be afraid to shoot that thing, it looks so nice!

    I've thought the same thing about these show pieces. It says they fire, but is there any real quality control?

    I like things that perform not that look pretty. I use all of my firearms and they're not for show. A chromed up, gold plated gun will do me no good besides looking pretty.

    Just FYI in case anybody is thinking about having any gun parts gold plated as accent parts.
    I used to do a lot of that.
    There are more than a few different types of Gold plating.
    The 23K looks the best and the richest but, it does not hold up very well in that it scratches very easily.
    You can give it light hazy scratch marks just by wiping it with a clean, soft, cotton cloth.

    I used to HEAVY Gold plate 23K and that could be polished many times but, I'm guessing that no other electro-platers these days plate nearly pure Gold as heavy as I did.

    Many platers Bright Nickel plate first and then just do Flash Gold which deposits hardly any gold metal on the bright Nickel and that type of plating cannot be polished.
    Well, likely not more than once and then the Gold is completely off on the highlights.

    The lower Karat Gold looks far less great - though it's slightly more durable AKA scratches less easily.

    There are harder type Gold Alloy plating solutions that do hold up better but, they don't look real great. They look CHEAP and quite ugly.

    By far for guns you're better off with Gold Titanium Nitride rather than real Gold.
    It looks almost as good as nice, deep, highly polished 23K and is super hard and durable.

    So unless you're planning on doing an accurate restoration to replace original Gold or Silver plate...I would not suggest having Gold or Silver plating work done on a firearm.

    That would be unless it's going to be a "display" firearm only.
    On a showcased non shooter it would be fine.

    Sure its nice looking. But i make it a habit that any gun I buy I would trust my life with it.

    Of course, I could always blind an intruder by reflecting my tac light off the chrome of that thing.

    I've never liked the designs on those things. Gold is too much, and the inlays are too busy.

    The grips however, I like (except for the logo).
