Welcome everyone to the 48th edition of ‘Hot Gat or Fudd Crap?’, one of our many series here on TFB. If you’re new to the series, this is where we look at the most obscure firearms that are actually for sale and ask the question – is this Gat a sweet deal or does it only have Fudd appeal? Each week the TFB staff weighs in with their thoughts, but readers get the final say in the poll at the bottom of each article.
In our last edition, our poll showed that you the readers, found the heavily modified Saiga 12 to be fudd crap.
At this time the original auction remains up, but with no bids. We hope someone can find it in their heart to adopt this Saiga 12 soon.
In this week’s edition of HGFC, we have yet another Harley Quinn inspired 1911. This one sent over to us by Jason S. As is tradition, this grossly modified handgun is currently up for sale on GunBroker for $749 Buy it Now.
HOT GAT or FUDD CRAP?
Harley Quinn or the Fudd’s of Prey?
Let’s see what the Staff had to say about this week’s offering:
“Yuck. At least make it a Chiappa Rhino.” – Nick C.
“I’m not sure how to write the sound of vomiting, but that would be my quote” – Doug E.
“Harley Quinn has jumped Deadpool in the Cringelord Billboard Chart for cosmetic gun modifications, sitting as a long number 2 against the top dog for 487 weeks straight, the Punisher.” – James Reeves
“Always tumble your brass before making an epoxy show stand.” – Pete
Selling this comical gat is GunBroker seller Dakotabandit, located in Wahpeton ND. Let’s see what they had to say about this strange tribute 1911.
This is a 1911 Commander Model. This is a custom cerakoted 1911 themed in Harley Quinn by Dakota Bandit in Wahpeton ND. The grips are custom made specifically for this pistol. Shipping is $25 dollars to your FFL.
Like Deadpool, Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey had just enough swear words and shooting sequences in it to get the fanboys all riled up. I’m not sure how this enthusiasm translates over to Cerakoting random firearms, but needless to say, it does.
I’m trying to play devil’s advocate here, and I’m coming up empty on nice things to say. If you’re going to purchase a classic 1911, please buy one in .45 ACP. Caliber debates aside, let’s leave 9mm to the 2011 guns. And as if I didn’t question the reliability already, I’m sure that Cerakote job isn’t doing it any favors.
Regardless of what I think, as always it comes down to you.
