Ugly Gun Sunday

This 45 caliber pistol is known as a JO-LO-AR, and is manufactured in Espana. It looks like a Colt 1902 pistol had too much tequila and crawled into a cheap no tell motel with a Beretta Model 86. Then some drug crazed kitchen table gunsmith came along and slapped in a Tokarev TT33 hammer and Dremeled away the trigger guard to make it into a Fitz Special. The grips have not been baked in an oven or warped over time. They came with the waves in them.
It's quirky and weird.
And it's ugly.

But this pistol is not just quirky weird and ugly. It is rare..........
Ultra rare. According to the auction, it is one of six "known worldwide."

For a small $8,500.00 bid, you can own this .45, and maybe you can find a holster.



Other things you can spend your $8500 on include:
A 1989 Malibu ski boat
Sly Stone's Attack Dog
MartinLogan Spire Speakers
A 1974 Customized Corvette
An Oscar de la Renta gown just like everyone else's
A backyard windmill
A 2001 BMW 325i
A baby boy black & white capuchin

An interesting (as well as ugly) specimen. John Malloy mentioned the Jo-Lo-Ar in his book "The Complete Guide to Guns and Shooting." The side lever was intended for one-handed cycling of the slide. If I had $8500, I do believe I'd spend it elsewhere...
