View Full Version : Frankenstein and the ugly guns!

A couple of years ago I came across a picture of a handgun that looked like- for lack of a better description- the Frankenstein of handguns. It looked like the designer was trying to borrow (or steal) features from several other handguns and put it all into one. I can't recall what company (I want to say it was European) made it or what it was called, but if you think you have a picture that resembles what I have described- post it here, and let's see what other UGLY handgun pics we can get while we're at it!

I don't own any ugly guns!:thumbsup: But if you insist on a starter...how about a Grendel? Sorry Ken96, but despite how she might perform, she ain't winnin' any beauty pageants! Nice work on the picture, wish mine would come out that well.

I hope that I have answered your challenge to your liking. Some may dispute my claims that the posted guns are ugly, everyone likes something different, but we all have probably come across a gun that we think is ugly. Now, I know some of you out there have an ugly duckling or two so let's see them!

not ugly per se.... she's more of a frankenstein gun peiced togeather from a bunch of leftover bits.

A lot of my 'normal' stuff qualifies as frankenstein.... I pieced most of it together one little bit at a time... just because it looks good now doesn't mean it wasn't made by a dozen plus manufacturers.

Ok, so it is centerfire, but there is not detachable magazine because it's belt fed, so if I keep ammo down to only 10 linked, I can get a semi-auto one of these right?:30:

You can keep it semi-auto in a configuration like that pictured.

Some info....
-The belt is a detachable feeding device. Unless you had belts of ammo linked with 11+ rounds before 2000, you'll be stuck using 10 round belts.

-The grip is arguably not a 'pistol grip' by CA penal code definition.

And the kicker.....the firearm is not a rifle, nor a handgun

......AW laws do not apply. :chris:

Now if your looking for beauty in a handgun, look no further than a COLT Python in blue steel. It just doesn't get any better as far as looks and perfection go. ;):)

All three of them are ugly to varying degrees. If I had to put them in order of uglyness that 81 would top the list. The 92 would come in second, which is the general Beretta I imagine when I think of the manufacturer. Best looking of the uglys you posted would be the cougar.

I'm not trashing them, just saying they are butt ugly. Obviously this is just my opinion which some and maybe even most, certainly you, will not agree with. One mans trash is anothers treasure, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, fill in your own fitting proverb here! ;)

wtf, who considers a 92 an ugly gun?? My first thought when I think of beautiful handguns is the 92, the thing is a work of art.

I guess some people prefer bricks of polymer, though??

In fact, there are very few handguns which I actually find aesthetically pleasing, some 1911s, some revolvers, but really the 92 takes the cake.

Anyways, keep on with the ugly guns.

The 1911 is by far my favorite automatic handgun, but I have to say when I pick up my 92 it feels like it was made for my hand. Might just be the most comfortable handgun ive ever handled, from when I was young with smaller hands until now with my big hands.

Ugliest.

This is the single-shot .45 "Liberator Pistol" that we (the U.S.) air dropped into occupied France during WW2. The idea was to shoot a German soldier with this gun in order to get his rifle.

Ugly for sure, but I'd love to own one.

Some of the examples are BUTT ugly. And I have a 92FS Inox. Couldn't agree with the TROLL who says Berettas are ugly. HA. I have TWO of them.

I respect almost all the pistols sold now, and none of them strike me as UGLY. The Ruger centerfires have the most industrial, look. But I dig the P90 I have.

Loved the WWII gun that was airdropped. So ugly, but has great history. I agree - would love to own one... Kinda like a few knives in my collection...
(Have a folding MACHETE that is FUGLY, but really neat).

P89, P90, etc IMHO are good looking guns and GREAT for the money. Leave it to Ruger to design some excellent value firearms and not get much credit for it. P series, the GP's, M14s, MKIII, 10/22. All great guns at a very reasonable price.

As for AJAX, I think you forgot to post a few pics. The blood damaged 1911. Or perhaps the fire damaged uzi?

The XD is also butt ugly but none of these are ugly enough not to own or shoot, well maybe the XD. The other end of the spectrum for me would be almost any 1911, S&W revolvers, some Colt pistols, mostly the old stuff like the Peacemaker and the Lightening/Thunderer.....
