It is a bit of a clash of design elements, but you've had worse.

That's like having an inlaid, nielloed, ivory-gripped Makita drill.

Even without the goldwork it would qualify.

I didn't think it was possible to make a GLOCK any uglier...

I wouldn't say it's UGLY, just not as attractive as it might have been. Anyway, I would bet it's got a great personality.......-grin-

Ahh, embellishing a Glock. Kind of like reproducing "David" with legos.

Sort of like having your family crest printed with gold leaf on a set of Melmac dishes.

That's more a "tacky" gun than an ugly one. If you find gold "enhancement" ugly then look at what was done to a perfectly good Browning:

This is the gun Antibubba linked to. Proceed with caution!

It's not really the gold highlights, it's the execution. It looks like it was rubbed on as a student's first class exercise for "Gold Leaf Techniques 101."

I think that last week's offering is a more tasteful rendition...by the way, what was that based on?

Honestly? Not as ugly as some you've put up here.

Very understated, I saw the flashier older brother to this one here in Austin.

The 'beauty' of my glock is that I can bump it, scrape it, slam it, get it wet, muddy, gooey or sticky and it not only still works - but looks the 'same'. It doesn't bother me to see a nick or gouge in it's 'fine' finish.

Doing anything that makes you worry about how a glock looks take away from it's 'beauty'.

Doing something to 'enhance' the appearance of a glock simply exposes that the owner has not grasped the original concept of the tool.

For all intents and purposes my rode-hard-n-put-away-wet 2nd gen 19 is could be considered uglier.

However, that's the last thing on my mind when I put it on.
