The grips are way too nice looking for how trashed the pistol is

WOW, even the front sight looks ground down. That one spent some time in a caustic environment.

Yes it's a funny meme, but I agree they could've picked a better example of a 1911 than that. Somebody who has no clue what a real battle-worn 1911 looks like either picked a photo of Bubba's truck gun or used Photoshop to simulate wear to the finish. It reminds me of the "John Wayne" edition Airsoft 1911s being sold at Big5 Sporting goods with similar "battle wear" to them. They look as fake as a $3 bill.
__________________
Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Only on a gun forum would we overlook the humor to criticize the model.


This is why my wife doesn't like to watch certain movies with me.

I don't get the whole battleworn finish on a new gun. I would rather put my own honest wear on it. Like buying new jeans with holes already in them

The people who buy those distressed jeans, and paint their apartments with a distressed painted wall, are the ones that buy a new gun with a battle worn finished. It's for the artsy-fartsy people.

What's next? Distressed finishes for brand spanking new cars and trucks? Makes as much sense as permanently caked on plaster fake mud, rust and dents around the fenders of a Jeep Wrangler so everyone thinks you been out in the woods 4-wheeling on the weekends?

Along with the 'battle-worn' finish, I like to distress my band new ammo, just so that it's more visually cohesive and less of a 'clashing' color palette. I mean, if you're gonna do it, you need to go all the way, right???!!!

I had someone want me to build them a "distressed" guitar. (that's what they were calling old looking back then) I told him it would be my regular price, payment due when he ordered it, and it would be "ready" in 20 years.

Most everything I own is at some level of "distressed" including my looks.

I'm not cool, just cheap.

Back to the original meme, I believe ("two time world champ" is the 1911 won WW1 and WW2. Don't know what boogaloo is.

I go nuts when I see a brand new high end sports car painted flat black. The flat black look was for the kid who built his car out of junk and could afford a few rattle cans to make it look decent- and here's some rich dude having his brand new Porsche painted flat black because so called "rat rods" are in fashion.

Yeah... its a topsy-turvy world... they call it "Murdered Out" cars. They want a $95,000 Mercedes look like a $420 Glock.
