Notice in the photo, the dust cover.
Who ever did the engraving didn't clean things up. There are plastic shavings hanging off the gun.

Sometimes beauty is in the shooting eye of the beholder. Witness this one:

Or try this one on for size:

Given the prices that they are asking, you'd think that these things were made of spun gold and silver and assembled on a Bond girl's tanned thigh. On the other hand, some folks out there love this sort of thing and can't wait to add it to their collection. I've never been a fan of engraved guns of any type, but you'll see lots of threads -- here and elsewhere -- from folks who rave about them.

It's hard to argue with that shortened, pimped-out PPK, however. What man wouldn't want THAT one in his trousers? :D

Wow that is some amazingly bad engraving in my mind. I had to look and see if I saw any engraving on that site that I actually liked. Well it took a bit, but this Walther actually has some nice, understated engraving.

Note that this engraving was done at the factory, not by an individual.
