Taurus did it with their gold bling editions of the PT1911. A number of factory Colt special editions are ugly IMO. Most other factory 1911s are fairly good looking with a few exceptions.

And then you have home brewed ugly:

Why oh why do that to a nice plain pretty Colt? :dunno:

LOL and a price tag that is just plain stupid, Collectors Firearms is a shop for people that don't know any better.

Why would anyone pay that kind of money for that stupid thing when you could get a DPMS AR for the same amount?

That's pretty damn stupid. I would not relate an M1911 to a Ferrari.

Didn't say impossible just hard! And that Kimber is not bad IMO. The striped one is ugly but looks well done :)

Must be my color vision issues cause to me that Kimber ain't half bad, minus those grips anyways. Some nice G10s would make it look kinda nice :)

They even have ugly overpriced revolvers.

I was prepared to hate, but I gotta say that Colt has some verve.:embarassed:

I'd carry it while wearing Huggy Bear outfit.

At least none of them have rails. And even the cartoon stripes aren't as ugly as the hard chrome or stainless ones that turn up all the time
