    I have seen exactly one of these Talo guns in the past several years, a 19 if I recall correctly, and it was very nice. Not my taste, but NICE. Call Talo and ask how many of these were made.

    The CT grips are a $200+ item by themselves so the deal seems reasonable.

    Rare? Yes. Special? Only to the one that truly wants it. Look at the bottom of the page.

    Barrel hood is jeweled and the slide is "polished" blue. Not my cup o tea.

    Looks neat but to me using a Glock to make a "special" gun just doesn't line up. My G32 is ugly as sin but I know that it will go bang every time I pull the trigger. I'd skip the ultra fancy/custom stuff for 1911s and such.

    IMO it's about as special as any modified GLOCK done by an external source.

    To "BLING BLING" for me.

    It's for sure not something glock made. If you really want aftermarket effects put on your glock send it away and have it done to your specifications.

    I can s**t in a bucket and call it one of a kind, but it's still just s**t in a bucket.

    Looks like the Glock a pimp would carry.

    Cool? Yeah. Do I want it? I wouldn't say no for the right price. Is $700 the right price? Hell no. I might pay $400-450 for it, but definitely not $700. Doesn't matter how rare/special it is, it's only worth what someone will pay.
     
  11. You can always clean your Glock slide with alcohol then after it drys heat it up with a hairdryer and rub gold crayon into the roll marks. :tongueout: I did. It looked good. :rofl:

    I saw one at my local shop years ago. I didn't care for it. I don't like any gold or jeweled metal on a firearm.

    This has both. :puking:

    It's way over the top for me too.
    But to each his/her own.

    I've got one of the original Talo EXO two tone G27s
    that I still have and love.

    That is actually my talo Gold i have posted on armslist at the moment. I know everyone has there mixed feelings on these. I happen to like it and i am def far from a pimp. I have a thread about this in the collector section on here as well. Just happen to run across this. From what little information i have found on these they were distributed by the talo coporation and the work was done but Baron Technology. I have read they only made 300 of these in the 23 model and 300 in the 19 model. To many thats pretty rare. Yes i realize its all cosmetic and not done by Glock. Yes its still a plain glock 23 with a little done up extirior. But thats what makes it differnt somone could really like it who knows.
    Just posted it up on armslist to see if i got any good offers or hits on it. Would be more intrersted in trading then selling outright.
