Hot Gat or Fudd Crap

For those not familiar with the Stealth Arms Platipus, it’s where “but does it take glock mags?” meets modern 2011 features.  All the ergonomics, crisp trigger, and other things 1911 and 2011 fans talk about, and then somewhere along the line, this happened.

This gun raises more than a few questions, but namely; why? I’ve heard of BBQ guns, and golden guns, but I was unaware of easter and/or gender-reveal guns.  While functionally this checks out, and yes, it does take Glock mags, I’m going to have to pass on this one.

What do you think? Is this pink and blue Platipus worth it for the $3,499 Buy It Now or would you rather this madness just stop now?  As always I leave it up to you, the readers, to decide.
