I got a new C9

Postby Flowmaster » Tue Oct 11, 2016 8:08 pm

On Sunday I got a new C9 as a gift from some friends who all pooled their money together to get me this amazing gift. Its not just any normal black on black C9 pistol. They came to the gun show I was working at just to give it to me (and buy some guns/stuff at the same time too). The box may be a giveaway. Here are some pictures.

Hmm, they crossed out the black option and put a dollar sign. What could that mean...

Still guessing? This is what was inside the box.

I had some pretty good lighting in my dining room so I decided to get sort of artsy with the photos:

Its factory-done hydro-dip finish of $100 bills.

I went over and showed it to one of the biggest gun dealers in the state (who was set up at the gun show) and he was talking to a member of the state police who do background checks at the shows. When I opened the box, the gun dealer asked if it came with a trace form and the state police guy just said wow, that's a crime gun.

Good laughs were had by all.

That is pretty entertaining. I like it but could definitely see it being a preferred weapon for pimps/drug dealers. I think they should bring back the high polish finish from the factory.

Those high polish finish hipoint used to have rank right up there with the black fingernail polish Lorcin used to put on there guns. Hipoint wouldnt apply a base coat of nickel or copper and tried to just throw chrome on rough zamak castings. As the zamak internally corrodes (which zamak does) the chome would just start to flake off. It seems to happen really badly to the internals first until it works its way around.

I like that hipoint money gun though. fancy paint jobs are not my thing but that one is sweet. The grips need some echelons laid into them. maybe melt down some old coins for silver bullets.

Rumor has it that it is a special run for treasury officers and federal reserve slimeballs.

Was that a birthday present or just because?
