Heavy idiot scratch, any type of painted on finish (non factory) is a no go for me. Mods would be ok if they were done by a well known ‘smith.
I hate (with any gun) when someone tries to sell their projects. I am the same with buying used sports cars. Don’t sell me your half assed project. Your dumbass G19 with curling iron stippling is not worth $650.

You'd love CA Armslist, where people sell their home stippled gen 4 Glocks for $1200+.

Stainless S&W revolvers that have been polished-NO!!!!! I prefer to buy guns in original condition though improved sights-generally night version-are good. Other things for 1911s such as the thumb safety or mainspring housing swaps are cool if everything is good to go. Checkering can be a good addition if done properly.

Poorly done sight, what the last guy did, changes.
Found a real nice old Colt with the exception of a half milled in Millet sight.
Just deep enough that it couldn't be fixed by re milling it for a Bomar or LPA sight.
That was a no go for sure for me.

I don't do modified except by my Smith or one I know and can verify the work done. For example, used customs only issue is some Smiths are not active or have passed.
