Please, for the love of all things sacred, tell me that's some kind of computer photoshop nightmare and the 1911 is really okay???

That made me cry just to look at it... And there was a black one in the background...

Maybe it's de-milled. The "practice" bombs we used to carry were all painted blue. And "practice" guns are molded from blue plastic. :rolleyes:

Let me put it another way: No accounting for taste...or the lack thereof.

That color is the standard color for simunition or disabled training guns. So, in addition to not being my aesthetic cup of tea, it could be a bad idea (unless it is a training gun)

This should not be the first pic you see when logging on in the morning. There should have been some kind of warning. I choked on my coffee and must have made an awful crying sound because my dog came runnung into my study to see if I was ok. Once I recovered I had to open my gun safe and just look at my Remington Rand 1911A1 and my STI Eagle. I'm okay now.

I could hear my 1911s whimpering inside my safe. I had to take them out, wipe them down, and promise them that'd never happen to them....

At first glance I thought maybe that it was a gun that someone had turned into a dedicated simunitions gun. I don't know anything about how all of that works, but I would assume that the aftermarket trigger, bushing, and guide rod would not be something one would go through the trouble of putting on a simunitions gun... which means someone... painted... their 1911.... blue. :barf: No :barf: offense to the Picasso :barf: whose pistol this may be :barf:


As nero45acp said, everyone needs to take a moment, take out their 1911, whether they be stainless, hard chromed, nickel, or blued, stroke it gently (with oil if you prefer), and reassure it that everything will be alright.

Go crazy with your grips--Not your slides!!!!!! I would have gladly sold you some blue grips had you only asked and saved that poor defenseless slide the pain and horror!

Hey but then again it's your gun do as you wish--Now if that would have been a GI Issue Colt I would have punched you through the computer screen!

I can dig it.

The bushing looks like it is made out of plastic, though, so I think it isn't a functional gun, unless somebody makes a really blocky bushing.

No, there are aftermarket bushings like that, but I don't remember who makes them. It's intended to get rid of the "stepped" look of a traditional bushing. I don't really know why that would be important, but they do exist.

Put some flames on it and it will look pretty close to the paint job on a 1950's chevy.

I think it needs some blue grip panels, such as these blue aluminum "Extreme" grips from Hogue:

why is everybody being so cold to this person with the remarks about his gun, yes it's different but you dont, have to get offensive about it, it's obvious this is a 1911 fan like all of us, with just a different taste in colors, thats what makes the 1911 the best pistol in the world, the possibilities ae endless, lets not be so close minded..

You do realize that all of the other guns you have will make fun of it now. I can just hear the first comment. Hey Mr. 1911, why so blue? hahahaha.

Guns can be so cruel sometimes.

What kind of finish is that? Powdercoat? Really, I'm curious. It looks like a quality job.

Looks like Duracoat, Alumahyde, or some similar paint.

It's not mine. I saw on a 1911 forum. It belongs to someone in Italy who used it as a competition or "race" gun.

My god, how fast can you get the paint stripper out?

I hope they used watercolor paint.

Although it's not a great color choice lol It certainly is unique ! I have never seen that on a 1911 ever .

i can't say i'd ever do that to my own gun. i do kinda like it though. guns are such a personal object, you can't really do any wrong to them.

Yuck! Thank god rondog salvaged the thread with that beautiful 1911.

What's all the fuss ?
And here I was, thinking americans were very fond of "two-tone" auto pistols ?
How many don't pay good money to have a chrome-plated slide on a blued frame (or the other way around) ? What's the diff ?.

Gross. Tell me that's an airgun and not a real 1911 which you stupidly coated.

However, that black-slide 1911 in the background is nice.

Painting a working firearm the color of standardized blue training weapons is outright irresponsible.

The bushing looks like it is made out of plastic, though, so I think it isn't a functional gun, unless somebody makes a really blocky bushing.

That's an EGW bushing. It is meant to be flush with the flats of the slide.

The royal blue 1911 is just beautiful. Just absolutely beautiful.

As to the blue italian race gun, ehh. Perhaps they don't use the same color-code for simunitions in Europe, or perhaps it is a dedicated simunitions slide and barrel assembly. Aesthetically, though, it's trainwreck.
