    I saw one of the ugliest 1911's I have ever seen in my life. I can't find a pic but I was watching American Guns and Rich made a 1911 for his wife for an, anniversary gift. It had some God awful engraving on it and was silver plated, and had diamonds in the sights to replace the white dots, and it had diamonds embedded in the grip panels. Rich should be ashamed of him self for doing that to a 1911:Cry:

    If that had been the first 1911 I saw, it would probably be the last time I ever looked at one. :puke:

    The worst part is that the grips have over 10 karats of diamonds. You would think the jeweler could at least make them in a nice font and actually inset the stones in the grips. It looks like a 4 year old glued the diamonds on. Then after watching those fools try to fit the gun back together after the plating. Well... thats a whole nother thread.

    @ Soylent green,
    Thats exactly what I was thinking too...
    One would think it was the first time these gunsmiths ever had to put a custom 1911 together. I'm glad my sear pin wasn't fit in it's pinhole using a power drill. Oh'e well, it's just another reality show.
