    First time I saw the print on the top of the slide. Pretty tacky if you ask me. I mean what are you gonna do, put it in a display case? Whats the medallion made of, steel or aluminum and how is it attached?

    They should of made it more subtle by shrinking the emblem and making it a small imprint in the side of the slide and take the writing off the top.

    Hell they could of even done a limited edition "stainless silver" finish on the slide itself.

    I'd trust my life to any model Glock...oh wait...I do!

    No safe queens, nothing I collect - it's just not me - and I can't afford to do that
    But if I was loaded I'd get one...beats an engraved 1911 in my book...but that's just me.

    You can blow up any gun if your IQ isn't high enough to compensate for your lack of reloading skill.

    The funniest thing I saw when I joined GT was the "Glock picture thread".

    So you're saying that Glock owners in general lack IQ? Man that's rude. :whistling:

    I have nothing against Glocks (heck, I own one too) as they are quite adequate for their intended purpose. I do not like however, the medallion on the one in the picture. Man, that really makes it look like a gumball machine prize. Methinks it would have been better in a dark grey or something other than the glaring light color.
    I'm sure they'll sell though. There are those that just crave "different" no matter what it is, and that can be hard to find in the Glock line.

    I think it would of been a bit better without the crappy tack on, and them going with a generation 1 design.

    There are plenty of pictures on the net about other guns blowing up as well. Better it be a $500 Glock compared to a HK.

    If one googles Glock KB.... you have numberous pics come up of different examples. H&K not so much. Either way, I'd prefer not to have one in EITHER platform as I like my hands.

    Glocks are just as cool to customize as a 1911. :whistling:

    Well, at least it's as ugly as the original

    Looks like someone got a hold of their daughter's Bedazzler.
