    This one is currently listed for sale on a local GA gun forum. According to the ad, the slide is "Harley Davidson Orange". Ghastly IMHO...

    Well, I can see why they're selling it, but will there be any buyers?

    You're in Georgia right?

    You have my permission to drive to this person's house and pistol whip them with that atrocity until the orange paint comes off.

    That is just plain AWFUL!!

    Admit it JD, you want this one as an evening companion to your Nighthawks!

    I'll have to get suprdave's opinion (as I'm a southern transplant) but I don't think any self-respecting redneck could own this gun. What makes this really funny is they're asking a NIB price for it...

    I just threw up in my mouth a little. That is FUGLY x1,000,000,000,000,000 over.

    Good lord I agree with JD pistol whip that douche till the orange is replaced with a nice gray and red swirl pattern.

    All it needs is the Matching Chrome grips and she would get sold quick.

    Oh Better yet. These smokin good lookin babies. Cane should get these for his Rowland... Looks like they offer some really good grip.

    Actually, I could see where this gun could become the "next big thing" in carry weapons - no ammo required. By deploying this beast for self-defense, odds are the BGs would pee themselves from laughter and run away completely embarrassed...

    From a redneck point of view...Hell Naw! That looks more like peach colored than "Harley" orange. All of the Harley guys I know would beat his *** for saying that was Harley orange...Sheesh!

    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.

    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...
