Just when I think you can't find an uglier gun, you do.

Where do the batteries go?

I dunno. I kinda like it.

What the heck kind of gun was it originally?

Is this the firearms equivalent of a "fantasy blade"?

OK, on this one I'm not sure I agree. It's actually quite stylish, in a perverse sort of way. If you told me it was a prop gun used by Ming the Merciless in a Flash Gordon movie (or even Princess Aura -- Ming always was a little light in the grav-boots) I'd believe it.

PLEASE tell me that wasn't a SIG P210! PLEASE!

Lord Thunderin' Haysoos, where do you find this stuff? That gun (if it is a genuine gun, at that) is, as uncle Brad once said, "uglier than 50 pounds of hickory smoked assholes".

I believe someone thought that was a good idea, and the thought of that is terrifying.

What is it? I have always had the opinion that any really reliable gun could not be ugly,but...

I gotta say, as a SciFi type gun as pictured in the 50's, its pretty cool. I dont know how I would feel if a perfectly good pistol was butchered to form this - but if it were a parts gun, I think it's pretty neat.

Somebody's been reading a bit too much Five Star Stories...

I gotta admit, I'm mixed too. After the initial shock, it looks cool in a evil-steampunk kind of way.

Looks like a prop from the Romeo and Juliet movie (the one with Leonardo DiCaprio).

Okkaaayyy.
That's different.

When I first saw that I thought "That has to be an artist's rendition. It can't be real."

Is it?

Looks like a heavily made-up Beretta 92F.

Must be owned by a Saudi prince.

It's always amazing to see what can be accomplished when somebody has enough money and really bad taste.

That looks like a Steampunk character's dream weapon!

I don't know. Might be just the thing for an evening at the opera. Far less likely to tangle the other patron's feet in the box than say a rapier and main gauche. You would have to rehearse your presentation however to exclude the possibility of bringing up your glasses by mistake (if needed). ...or worse bringing up the weapon instead of the glasses and shooting yourself in the head by accident. Unforgivable, especially if any spatter was to befall your neighbor.

Not quite sure I'd call it UGLY, but it is gaudy to the extreme. . . . And that trigger guard. . . .
As others have asked, what was it originally?

WV: mingsh - property of, and/or belonging to, a lisping Ming (see ChumGrinder)

Was that a Sig 210?

Raptor took the words out of my mouth . . . the more I look at it, the more it looks like a P210.

I actually kind of think it's neat . . . certainly a lot of work went into it. But it looks a lot like the so-called "gentleman's folder" that's so popular in knives right now, with insane clashes of color and movement engraved and anodized and jeweled everywhere.

That kind of decoration isn't decoration anymore. The gold flourishes have become the point of the exercise; the gun could have been a Hi-Point and it wouldn't look a lot different, though they'd have emphasized different lines. It might be beautiful to an engraver, but as a shooter, in the end I can't get into it.

If you were a Turkish king or Austrian nobility, perhaps even a Russian Czar around the turn of the century, then I think it would be the perfect gun for you. If not, then yes it is a little outlandish and over done. I will however say that in the realm of ugly guns you have shown us much worse and with a lot less style than that one. I am not saying I like it but I am not saying I hate it. I still don’t think that I would want one…

Okay, it begs the question: who is Catherine de’ Medici and how did her pistol end up here?

I do like its vaguely-Masonic looks. But then, black and gold in combination are my favorite colors - put them both on a gun and I can't help myself.

That looks like a demented version of my Whitney Wolverines!!!! And people say Wolverines look funny...

That's ugly enough I'd almost want to have it, just because. Sorta like always wanting an Elvis stage outfit for Halloween parties but tackier!

This would be the perfect sidearm for the Third Earl of Cumberland.

This is a SIG P210 customized by Vivian Mueller of Murgenthal.

Meeee likey the broken trigger guard and shape of the trigger. and the consistency of the design, it's not just a silly design-add-on, it's an actual "complete pimping" in a nice old-fashioned way...
