Ugly Gun Sunday

What happens when Bubba snorts some crystal meth and attacks his pistol with power tools? You get ugly.......Stupid ugly. Some knucklehead decided to "lighten" this Colt pistol to make it more conducive to carry. By whacking off great gobs of slide mass, Bubba was forced to move the rear sight forward, reducing the sight radius. Here are Bubba's selling points:
TRICKED OUT. ALL UNNECESSARY METAL REMOVED. COATED WITH IMPERVIOUS CERAMIC COATING. WORKS PERFECTLY. TUNED TRIGGER 5 LBS CRISP. TUNED EXTRACTOR, FEEDS ALL HOLLOWPOINTS. COMES WITH TWO MAGS. MEPROLIGHT TRITIUM SIGHTS. SIGHTS ARE 6 MONTHS OLD. GUN NOT FIRED MUCH. CLW FRAME. NO HOLSTER NEEDED, SIDE CLIP BY CLIPDRAW MODIFIED TO ALLOW MUCH LOWER CARRY IN PANTS. CERAKOTE BY ULTRACOAT IN OLATHE KANSAS IS RUST PROOF. WEARS NOT AT ALL IN HANDLING OR EVEN SHOWING IN A BUSY GUN SHOP. THIS GUN WILL LOOK LIKE THIS FOREVER, LIVES ON A GLASS SURFACE WHICH EATS BLUE AND NICKEL ALIVE. BLACK SMUDGE ON SLIDE IS PLASTIC ABRADED FROM MY TRUCK CONSOLE, THE GUN'S SURFACE IS SANDBLASTED AND IS ABRASIVE TO SOME SURFACES. THE PLASTIC COMES OFF EASILY WITH OILY CLOTH. ALL EDGES "MELTED" TO ENSURE SMOOTHER CARRY. DLASK TRIGGER, BOBTAIL SHORTY MAINSPRING HOUSING. BEAVERTAIL GRIP SAFETY. SPRINGCO SHOCK ABSORBER. SLIMLINE GRIPS. STRANGELY DOES NOT KICK MUCH. EVEN WITH HOT LOADS. THUMB SAFETY IS ORIGINAL 70 SERIES TYPE GROUND DOWN TO NOT IRRITATE WHEN CARRYING. VERY LIGHT AND EASY TO CARRRY.
What Bubba neglected to consider while ruining this pistol is there are plenty of lightweight 1911s on the market without screwed up slides.

The Clip Draw device is not a substitute for a holster. It works OK for short jaunts if you have a good gun belt. For prolonged concealed carry it is not sufficient. For a carry gun without a holster, this pistol certainly has some big holes for lint and other trash to gather in. The beveled bottom edge of the slide looks like an inebriated chimp held the file. The grip safety appears to have been fitted with a hammer and chisel. The bobbed hammer......I'm speechless. Bubba did chose a good trigger though. To bad he trashed the rest of the gun around it.

$2,500.00 as a starting bid?

No.

If he wanted an open slide he should have just bought a Beretta.

About the only thing a person could do with a gun like that is cut some of the frame away and create a "cutaway" 1911 for educational purposes. I sure wouldn't be firing it, certainly would never consider carrying it, and at no point would I ever dream of paying $2500 for one; that kind of cash will buy a brand new Springfield Armory Professional model. Or a quite well equipped more "pedestrian" 1911 and two or three other guns of your choice.

It's a hole he drilled through the slide.

Ugh. The only "useful" modification he made to the gun was the bobtail. The slide cuts? That little circle cut-out? Utterly useless, pointless, and ugly. Bobbed hammer? Why didn't he just install a "commander" hammer? The trigger's nice, but I've got just as good a trigger by polishing the factory sear on my Springfield and dropping in a "gunshow special" adjustable trigger. The reduced safety seems pointless; I have a Wilson extended ambi safety on mine, and have never had a problem with it "chafing."

And that Clipdraw thing just adds to the ugliness and pointlessness of the gun.

I might give 50 bucks to him for the parts. $2,500 is ludicrous.

All it needs is front slide serrations resembling lightning bolts and its good to go.

The circle is apparently a hole drilled into the slide by Bubba to let more dirt into the gun's internals.

I'm truly speechless... Checking out the close ups with the auction lets one appreciate what a truly awful hackjob this is. There doesn't seem to be a single surface or piece on this gun that hasn't been messed up.


This is a clear case of cruelty against firearms. Put down the power tool and step away slowly, Bubba! Don't make the ghost of St. John Moses Browning come down and haunt you!

if you actually put that in your waistband, the rear sight would catch below the seams of the pants just below the belt line. all, in all, looks like a fun project if you have lots of guns and no sense. certainly not a carry weapon.

You could get 5 Taurus 1911s for that price.

The only other way to ruin the pistol further is to take a sledgehammer and obliterate it.

I can understand the intent, but you really have to know what you're doing. Otherwise, the "elimination of the unnecessary" becomes unnecessary compromises that can directly affect reliability and performance. For instance, with a compromised slide, I'd be frightened of the thing fracturing on me during use! At least, with a Beretta, the pistol and its parts were designed AND built with an open slide in mind.

Besides, as others have said, this venture was also pointless. If you wanted an M1911A1 that is properly modified intently for concealed carry, it would be better to get something like the Kimber Ultra-Carry.

You'd also have the benefit of a warranty, too!

AMEN to that! Maybe it's "friends" like this guy who give the anti-gun crowd their reason for being!

What a butcher job!

If you want a light 45, there are plenty on the market.

I wouldn't shoot this thing - I wouldn't be near it when someone did.

Hacking off pieces of metal to lighten a machine needs to be done carefully. And shortening the sights to that length is about moronic.

I wonder if the slide is forged or investment cast. I wonder if the guy who hacked it up knows. Yo don't just hack pieces off a machine without specific design and metallurgic knowledge.

The comment about a hyper bubba with a saw and grinder is spot-on.

I did this to a car once. It was first a Lamborghini. I cut off the roof, put on go-cart tires, took out the engine and installed a chainsaw engine with a pull-start installed by the gear stick. Then I put a gas mask on the headrest of the driver's seat attached to the exhaust.

I didn't get very far, and had to sell it for reasons that you can determine for yourselves.

What, you don't like the hammer? I bobbed a hammer like that on a 1911. My shooting bud says it looks, "peppy."

The massive modifications to make this gun inaccurate, illogical and unreliable mean it's one of the ugliest guns you've presented. The insane price is the cherry on the top of its ugliness.

No way would I assume without proof that the sights on this gun are well aligned or capable of being well aligned.

The thought of someone putting this mutilated gun through a typical mud and dust "torture test" makes me laugh.

Wow, it's like seeing a corvette put on a Japanese 4x4 pickup chassis.

All it's lacking is the sights mounted on the side so he could aim it "gangsta" style...

As a tool & die machinist I'm suprised someone this stupid could opperate the machinery it took to ruin the gun.
