Is this a good deal?

https://dallas.texasguntrader.com/ca...saletrade.html


I really like the bling factor, thought it would be a good open carry choice. However, if I get it I wont be able to afford that $8,000 gold-plated PSAK-47 I've had my eye on.

Thoughts.

I could see that with the right grips or stocks in the pants of a Mexican drug lord.

If it were solid gold, the AK might be worth it. Honestly, this is probably some sort of money laundering scheme. That's a $600 rifle with $100 worth of plating. Few people with $8000 to spend are that stupid. The pistol is neat, but not $4500 neat, and needs to be chambered in 38 Super to sell to it's likely demographic.

It would be a real good deal if it was a 70 series.

Unless your name is el Chapo I can't see paying $4500 for an $800 1911 with a bunch of thin gold leaf stuck all over it.

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.

I can think of a whole lot of 1911's I'd spend 4500 on before that one. Just sayin...

The white dots on the rear sight is the deal breaker for me. Too busy!

All the best in 2020,
