I Need More $$$
This is a discussion on I Need More $$$ within the General Firearm Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; Looks like a really nice fully engraved Colt Slide & barrel combo for sale on Ebay.
I kinda wish the seller would have posted larger ...

Hmmm - while I did for coupla years much enjoy looking at my Commem' 1911 - have to say - not able to consider such expenditure on ''prettiness''.
Don't get me wrong - I admire to the max the skills of engavers - love it but - not needed for me. Bit like appreciating next door's garden and all the pretty flowers. Me? Can't be bothered - as long as my yard is tidy and works
I can think of good ways to use $600 QK - and it wouldn't be that slide/barrel combo. But then anyways compared to many folks here - I am almost a 1911 Philistine LOL!!

I wonder what happened to the rest of the gun? There are plenty of comm .45's at americaremebers.com, they sell for 1695.00 and up.

I think I'm siding with P95 (again) on this one. While I can appreciate the work (believe me, I can- up until recently I was the squadron Plaque Officer, I had the joy of engraving every plaque for our squadron), on a pistol, I just don't see the point. I think it was Musashi (yes, I'm pretty sure that's spelt wrong) who said weapons should be functional. But it still is pretty.

I wouldn't buy something I'd be afraid to use for fear of scratching it. If I want something to hang on the wall - there are cheaper decorations. :)
