Did this guy do what it looks like he did to an old colt?

    This should make trigger locks obsolete.

    Idiot thinks he's gonna get a starting bid of $500 too.

    Be interesting to see if someone is dumb enough to buy that.

    Nothing would surprise me though.

    We need to shut this down before the Brady Bunch starts demanding mandatory encasing in plastic instead of trigger locks.

    I could see putting an old beat up derringer in lucite or whatever he used and have it for a paper weight or whatever but this little colt looks brand new.

    Would there be any way at all to salvage that pistol? Maybe slowly melt or chemically remove the lucite?

    I pray it was either totally junked but made to look good, or that this is somehow reversible...

    Well the good news is coin collecting people say that acetone will slowly dissolve lucite, no idea what that would do to grips on gun. It also seems that it will melt at around 140 deg C.

    Methylene chloride or chloroform would dissolve the lucite without damaging the metal. I don't know what it would do to the grip material.

    I'd like to see that presented at a Michigan P.D. and ask for it to be "safety inspected". :rolleyes:

    Would this still have to go through an FFL?

    DUH!!! He obviously was smart enough to clear the chamber...the bullet was ruined WITH the gun...not inside it...

    For all we know, it could have been a rusted out POS unsafe to fire, that he polished and chromed.

    It is going to be hard to check the action on that one. I think I will pass.

    It is just a decorative display, on what might not even be an operable gun. I wouldn't pay half a grand for it.

    Don't give the anti's any more ideas for "safe storage"!
