Wow- I think the seller might actually have some pretty darn good bids by now if the gun wasn't pimp-a-licious:barf:

That old veteran should be bought, deloused, and given a good rest home.
It looks like gold paint.....?

The guy who did this should be buried up to his knees in swamp

Oh well, at least the gold krylon should come off fairly easily. :uhoh:

What makes it especially awful (for me at least)-I actually own a WWII vet Ithaca 1911A1.

Nothing like that will ever happen to it, I promise.

Any body who would do this to a classic old war horse like this should be horse whipped, hung, buried,dug up and shot.:fire:

If it actually showed up for war looking like THAT, it'd get a "section 8".

:rolleyes:

Actually, I don't know how a pimp could get any respect with a gun that understated...now add some pearl grips, and a nickel plated upper...and they would be coughin' up da Benjamins!

I think his punishment should be a pistol whippin' by the pimp who buys it!

That really is a crime. A once proud weapon of war relegated to the status of chrome plated sissy pistol. It actually looks like the work of Sadam or one of his goons.

I think he would do well to let it go for $650, but I expect he wants close to $1000 for it because it was a WW II pistol. It just ain't gonna happen'! :uhoh:
