    While I am a proud G19 owner, this is just over the top for me.

    G19 @ Gunbroker

    Glocks are designed to be functional, not 'pretty'....

    HAHAHAHA what a joke!! i believe the same as everybody else. Glocks are a work horse. i guess if you have a few glocks and want to make one into an custom handgun then i guess it would be ok but dont make it look like a crappy lowrider

    Nothing like fancy engraving and gold inlay on top of plastic. If they really wanted to create some collectables, they could have done something with the frame. :rolleyes:

    Some Glocksters will no doubt spend waayyy too much for them and be happy.

    If you look at the engraving by its self. Then I see it as being very well done and looks real good but if you look at the whole picture then it gets a tad uglier. I don't understand the fanboy attitude around glocks. They are a gun shoot them till the don't shoot no more then move on to the next. I have a buddy that thinks glocks are the be all end all in the gun world. His glocks will out shoot my $2000 bench rifle attitude is odd. He has one 1911 and thinks it is a horrible design. I would rather get shot with a 1911 than some Austrian plastic. I asked him about shooting reloads in his glocks and he said well I don't reload so I don't have to worry about it. Then I ask how much he pays for ammo. Then I tell him I can load it for close to 1/10 the cost he is paying. He says oh well.

    To each their own.

    That Glock is the stupidest-looking sidearm I have seen in a long time.....

    To each their own, though.

    Don't care what the side arm is..to get my wife to wear a thong as a holster or maybe a drop dead beautiful co-ed..a 1911 would be the ultimate accessory

    You can engrave it,
    You can gold plate it,
    You can even ask a lot of money for it,
    But it's still a tupperware POS... no matter what you do it.

    I can't say I care for the look of a gold inlay on a Glock. Seems like certain guns can pull off looking good with gold while others can't. To each his own.

    I get request for custom paint work done on stocks regularly and those request sometimes ugly up the guns. I've done tiger stripes in hot pink for one lady customer and neon green job for an AR for a guy. I couldn't get the guy to give me an answer on "why neon green". It really stood out.

    This thread is over a year old and I'm sad to say that I miss this post until now.

    Well done, shihan.
