Firegild Luxury Firearms

Firegild handgun

Custom firearms manufacturers are nothing new, but Firegild starts at a level above where other companies stop. Firegild starts with guns from many of the most popular manufacturers such as Beretta, Colt and Ruger. Then they design a unique, personalized handgun that uses gems such as rubies, sapphires, emeralds and diamonds. Fine leathers and exotic hides can also be used.

“At Firegild we understand that there is more to a firearm than just its utilitarian look and application,” said company owner Polly Davis Ditch. “A firearm can make a statement, a bold statement, that announces to the world that its owner isn’t just another among the crowd, but instead an individual who stands apart with a unique style and sensibility.”

Although the company is working with only handguns right now, they do have plans to include shotguns and rifles at a later date.

    Yuck.

      Gaudy & kitschy are not a good combination.

      Bronies have better taste than this, even.

      • ostiariusalpha

        No. No, they really don’t.

      • ostiariusalpha

        No. No, they really, truly don’t.

          “Haters gon hate”

        • Cymond

          Hey, they’re not all bad. I know a few lovely bronies. Excuse me, “PegaSisters”.

          • sam

            I’ve got the idea stuck in my mind now of attaching animal ears and/or a unicorn horn to the band of my ear-pro. It would be awkward for all in the vicinity. Total church fart.

          • Zachary marrs

            No way you can make a public shooting range more awkward

          • ostiariusalpha

            And if those gals want to cosplay at Comicon or other general convention, I don’t see the problem. It’s the +280lb. man-children that aren’t really making that dress work that I could do without.

  • sam

    It would be more luxurious if the grip screws were indexed 😛

    • TheNotoriousIUD

      YOLO

      • MR

        Not even a single letter?

      • sam

        Good analogy

    • MR

      That’s what torx heads are for.

      • sam

        Well, that would make it easier since they can only be off by up to 72 degrees instead of 180, but I’d still want the stars at the same angle in order to express my unique style and sensibility

        • Swarf

          Extreme nitpicking! Screw division.

          A flathead screw can only be “off” by 90 degrees before it’s back on its way to being “on” again.

          • MR

            Honestly, 90° would bug me a lot less than 7° or so.

          • sam

            That’s an OK perspective, but my unique sensibility looks at the leading angle, rather than the smaller of the two.

        • MR

          I see you opted for the high class five-point torx stars, most of the torx screws I see around here are six point. Reduces the potential for error to 60°-well, I suppose 30°, as Swarf pointed out, it starts reducing again once you pass half-way.

          • sam

            When I posted that I was thinking they were all fivers… probably due to vivid memory of having to perform remedial tampering on GM cars.

  • MR

    Is it April already?

  • nester7929

    Just stick with engraving if you want your gun to be a piece of artwork. These look like something from a Kim Kardashian fever dream.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    “…an individual who stands apart with a unique style and sensibility.”

    Just say douchebag next time.

    • Manny Fal

      “rich spoilt kids with no taste or self discipline but an incredible amount of entitlement”

  • Anomanom

    Not big on the brony pink, but that cinnabar red revolver with gold accents kind of gets me drooling.

    • TheNotoriousIUD

      Perfect for a shootout at your next masked sex ball.

      • Peter MadOnionSix

        You mean in the swingers club 😉

      • Anomanom

        Those sort of occasions call for something a little more refined. A silver Luger or P-35 with mother-of-pearl inlaid Brazilian rosewood grips.

        The red revolver says Carnival in Venice, or Chinese New Year.

      • I wish I could upvote this twice, thanks for the laugh man.

  • GlennYtronnovic

    Never mind the actual gilding, engraving, if you are gonna do this why choose so ugly guns to begin with?
    snubbies in general are ugly, and hammerlessones with those tiny cylinders? just looks wrong.
    the 1911 is not the ugliest but the High Power is the attractive sister…

    • Budogunner

      The 1911 is what puzzles me. That is a .22lr. It seems crazy to bling up a .22, but I guess I wouldn’t characterize any of the example firearms as sane.

      • Grindstone50k

        Well, they wouldn’t want to get it dirty, and since there’s no .22 to be had, they don’t run that risk.

  • Peter MadOnionSix

    And why the reference to Belgium ????

    • MR

      Maybe they think it’s a High Power.

  • John

    Well, Hello Kitty has an AR, why not a pistol!

  • Beju

    Are there enough Latin American drug lords and Russian oligarchs to support this business model?

    • You’re forgetting all of the Americans that buy guns to frame them and tell all their guests how expensive it was.

      • Beju

        I thought that’s what Cabot 1911s were for. 😉

  • Mystick

    Those are some ugly-ass firearms.

  • Raven

    There’s plenty of companies out there that make beautiful custom guns…this isn’t one of them. I mean seriously, compare these horrors to a nice Turnbull refinish or an old Swensen 1911, there’s no competition at all.

  • USMC03Vet

    Now I know where drug lords get their custom guns.

  • crackedlenses

    These all look fine to me. Don’t see where the hate is coming from.

    • Swarf

      I see what you fail to see what you did there…

      • crackedlenses

        Just out of curiosity, what did I fail to see what I did there?

        • Swarf

          Err. I thought, given your handle, that you were making a joke in as much as they look fine to you because you can’t see through your cracked lenses.

          Guess not…

          • crackedlenses

            Actually I was dead serious. I can see where a pink 1911 might be attractive to someone. Some people seem to suffer from a severe lack of imagination when it comes to firearms….

  • I gotta say, it looks like all they do is strip the guns and cerakote them, then put on fancy grips.

    I mean, if that’s your thing, it is, but that kind of work can’t compare to something like this:

    • ostiariusalpha

      Just looking at that gun makes me want to go out and shoot an auroch.

      • “Ah, man, if I could go on safari! I’d shoot myself a buff, and an elephant, maybe even a lion!”

        “Yeah, that sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? It would be nice to have that kind of money.”

        “What about you, if you could take any game in the world, what would you go after?”

        “Hmmm, tough choice. Everything you said sounds appealing, but there are a few others I’d consider. Like Aurochs.”

        “…What’s an orr-ox?”

        “Oh, it’s a type of bovid. Maybe I’d shoot a Moa, or a Smilodon…

        “Smilodon, isn’t that like a sabre-tooth tiger? Aren’t those extinct?”

        “I could do for some Deinosuchus, or Charcharodontosaurus, too-”

        “-Saurus!?”

        “Or maybe a Eurypterid.”

        “You’re no fun. I’m leaving.”

        “…So many choices…”

        😉

        • ostiariusalpha

          Capital! That Smilodon would look right smart mounted next to the Arctodus Simus in an action pose. I’d have to move the Paraceratherium skull to another room; there’s never enough space!

        • ghost

          I would not hunt rabbits in tiger country.

    • MrEllis

      That’s a might purty. Actually it’s art.

      • Swarf

        Pardon me sir, but your skin is crawling.

    • Southpaw89

      I’m not one for dressed up firearms, but that’s one purdy double gun there!

    • I like the mint and the red paint tones, but these are indeed gaudy and silly. I’ll chip in with other elaborate designs. It’s SIG P210 Helvetic commemorative (covered with various symbols of Switzerland as I understand), and an uber-weird Soviet sports gun, MTs-3-1 “Rekord” (a small-series gun based on a regular MTs that’s been modified – turned upside down and re-framed – by the champion shooter Sheptarsky).

  • Grindstone50k

    I don’t think selling Scentsy would cover this kind of expense.

  • MrEllis

    “Police, I’ve been shot by Paris Hilton!”

    “How do you know it was her?”

    “…”

  • Micki

    “Kill it with Firegild.”

  • Paul O.

    This falls under the, “just because it’s physically possible to do something doesn’t mean you should do it” theory.

  • I use to really hate this type of firearms. But maybe the ‘elite’ (whatever that means) will become fans of personal gun ownership and help the cause for us all. And maybe this will keep a few companies in business, too. Maybe, maybe not……

  • Victor Lourenço

    Not even a Las Vegas’ hooker would carry one of these.

    • Zachary marrs

      Too busy carrying other things…

  • Swarf

    While still mockable, I at least understand the Tango pair of LCR’s at the top: you have the masculine and feminine represented by the caliber choices and the complimentary color schemes.

    Not my thing, but at least the guns are a Tango team.

  • ghost

    None of which suit me.

  • Zebra Dun

    The phrase, “But it looked like a toy gun!” comes t mind.

  • Southpaw89

    Well they certainly don’t suit me, it is a free country, and if this expands the appeal of firearms in some small way, even if its to a small cross section of society, then maybe some good can come from it.

  • Madcap_Magician

    Looks like a Tiffany-obsessed wedding photographer got her hands on some Cerakote and some scrapbooking supplies…

    Also of note is that all the guns in the gallery are… inexpensive at best. I’m sure someone, somewhere, is paying for this sort of thing, though, so if they can make a business of it, more power to them.

    • screwtape2713 .

      “Ma’am, please drop those sequins and step away from that Cerakote container…”

      Though I must say that nothing whispers “Old World class, style and sophistication” quite like gemstones set in pink plastic…

  • Adam Fluegeman

    Clearly this is not a gun guy’s custom shop

  • Ratcraft

    Bruce Jenners gun collection?

  • MrApple

    To each his own. This looks like gaudy junk to me.

  • DC Singles

    They look like something you’d find in a trailer park. Tacky not luxury. Crappy white painted little girls room furniture and cheezy red and black lacquered machismo waterbed sets come to mind.

  • Rick A

    Professional gun bedazzlers. Awesome.

  • Doom

    wow, that is just… no… please no.

  • James Massman

    Say, isn’t that red & gold ‘Firegild’ snubby a .22? In fact, it looks like most, if not all samples are 22’s. So, a new form of pocket candy for the rich & wasteful. I don’t care, as long as it promotes more ‘safe’ gun ownership & not more unnecessary gun deaths.

  • shootbrownelk

    Hey, I know…let’s take an ugly gun and make it even uglier. I saw the first two and got ill. Saw the second one, a pink 1911 and I threw-up in my mouth! That one has Colombian drug lord written all over it! YUCK!
