You got the fluffy kitty kitty!


Some guns are slick masterpieces of engineering. While others look like they have been built from scratch out of old tractor and sunken rowboat pieces. This thread is for the guns that match up with the latter.

Let's start off with the Frommer Stop, a Hungarian pistol


Don'tcha just love that block 'n' tube aesthetic?

How about its brother, the 1956 Whitney Wolverine?


Or their father, any Sidewinder gun!


Something about English ww2 SMGs just rub me the wrong way.


Not ugly enough? Try this 1835 colt revolver.


If all else fails, you can leave it to Chinese mystery pistols


And of course, everybody's love-it-or-hate-it special, the H&K G11


One for the road because what the gently caress:


In short, find the ugly ducklings of the firearm world, bet it cool-ugly, or just plain old ugly-ugly.

You can find the original ugly guns threads here, which I very much enjoyed and so might you if you have not seen it!

The Wolverine is sweet as hell.

You could post basically every Japanese small arm from WW-2 here. The Arisakas looked kind of nice ( until production started to slip ), and they had one SMG that looked kind of neat. Everything else looks weird, often like a lovely knockoff version of someone else's guns.

Here's a few of my goofy looking guns.

Similar to the Frommer in the early 1900s weirdness, the Sauer 1913.

As seen in the Bad Decisions thread, my Taurus CT9. It'd look a lot better if it weren't for the stupid thumb hole stock and ribbed for her pleasure grip, but even then I suspect it would still look stupid.

And so ugly I love the gently caress out it is my FAL. Sometime I should "wear" the receiver and dust cover to match, but I'd rather spend time on it shooting.

Haven't shot it as much as I should have since I misplaced the two very proprietary mags like an idiot but it survived mag dumping at a goon meet just fine. Didn't jam even with lovely UMC, can't remember if we blew through the whole 250rd box or just went through most of it.

I don't even hate Taurus for the same reason I can't hate Kel-Tec, they both are willing to try new stuff and think outside the box. Yes, oftentimes it is goofy and poorly made, but it's better than yet another AR clone.

Do Kel-Tecs literally fire if you shake them too hard? That's the main reason I hate Taurus.

You missed the huge class action suite against Taurus for their "drop 'n' bang" autos where they had to either buy them back or replace them. This took place after the "shake 'n' bang" troubles with the Brazilian police force. Honestly, I wish other gun companies would try some of the things Taurus does, being that they are right up there in innovation with Kel-Tec, but until they work out their quality issues, I would stay far away from them. I still love me Taurus 627 though.
