If it was done that way, then there's a hole in the frame that shouldn't be there, which would, for me at least, drive the value even further down. Whatever the attachment method, it makes me wonder what other kitchen table gunsmithing might have been done. If I was a prospective buyer, I'd be inspecting the feedramp for unauthorized "polishing," etc. Unless the seller can find a foolish buyer, that gun is going to be on the market for a LONG time.

There's already a rail that shouldn't be there. Paint that shouldn't be there and stippling that shouldn't be there.

Does anyone else have a pistol with a stippled beavertail like on this example? Seems like that could be rather painful.

That thing is uglier than a deep fried butt hole.

Meh, I've seen much worse... Personally, I find firearms which have been Cerakoted/Duracoated gaudy colors far more aesthetically offensive than a snake skin pattern like that.
At least it doesn't look like a squirt gun.

Seriously, having a range gun refinished in a bright color is one thing, but folks who have it done to their carry piece just leave me scratching my head. The last thing you want in a potential self-defense situation is for an assailant to think that your gun is a toy and continue advancing on you, or worse have the perp's shyster of an attorney try to spin it that you intentionally had it colored brightly so that potential criminals would think it was a toy, thus providing you with an alibi for shooting them.

Unless you're a clown ... and go around dressed as a clown ... wherein a bright-coloured, toy-like carry piece will help it blend on your outfit as you open carry it -- and avoid any draw-from-concealment issues that might arise due to concealed carry wearing your baggy clown clothes -- or the fact that you're potentially trying to do so on a 10' tall unicycle.

After all, today's clowns have to be really careful; there's a lot of anti-clown sentiment going around. We should all try to be understanding and accepting of the special carry needs of clowns who carry - including things such as a toy-like (real) gun with a rail-mounted red flag that reads 'BANG' hanging from a belt holster on a 5" wide clown belt.... right next to the pouch of shapable balloons with a spare mag at the bottom of it.

The last clown I saw handed me a chicken sandwich. No gunplay involved, and the sammich made me feel like crap.
