GAG! I was a bit concerned about my XD45 being OD green, but that is friggin nasty. The green did grow on me, but the XD is tupperware, not a 1911; this is like ricing out a classic '60's Vette with a 4' wing & such.

Maybe if he put a Harley Davidson sticker on the slide it'd sell...But I highly doubt it.
If he was asking low price for it, I'd buy it, strip it and dip it. Bluing job wouldnt cost that much for a 1911.

Whoever did that to that gun is clearly not in their right mind

Well, at least that's better. Now it needs to be stripped and re-parkerized.

Never understood the whole spray paint thing myself. I like a parkerized gun and they look better that a $3 paint job...
