Back in the 80's before they went bankrupt the original Springfield Armory company briefly offered colored coatings for guns.

The American Handgunner did a write-up and among the pictured guns was an apple Red 1911 sitting in a bowl of real apples, a Red, White, and Blue 1911, and several models with Gold parts and colored slides and frames.

They said that one customer had his home defense AK-47 totally coated in Shocking Pink.
His idea on that was, if he ever had to actually use it, he would dare a lawyer to flourish the AK in front of a jury and claim that it was a horrible "assault weapon".

Some people will buy anything. It's ugly, it's RED, and it looks like they polished it to within an inch of it's life before the PAINTED it.

Wow even if you were trying to hide a previously screwed up gun finish, why would you pick that color? Ugh! It's bloody horrible.

And yet, it is a collector's item.
Is it ugly? Hell, yeah!!
Would you want to be found with it in your last dying moment? Hell, no way!

But then again, as Dfarriswheel tutored us once more with his fine wisdom: it's a gun with a piece of company history.
Rare and special. Therefor it will most certainly will find a way into a S&W collector's vault. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

Blasfemist mode on:

Did Colt make anything so ridiculous like this?
