    What's the most _____ gun you've ever seen?

    Yesterday, I saw a German-made shotgun/rifle. 16 ga SBS with an 8x57 rifle underneath. Not so weird. What made it so unique was the flip up rear rifle sight, which was controlled by a tang switch. Flippin COOL!

    Going to try and find out what make it was, but I know it was high-cost (3G or so). Most unique gun I've ever seen.


    So, what is the most ________(rare, unique, weird, strange, unusual, etc.) gun you have ever seen?

    I think one of the oddest handguns in my opinion would be the Mateba auto revolver. Who would ever think of a cemi automatic revolver?

    Rifle wise, I think the most unique in my opinion is the M1855 Colt Root revolving rifle. Highly dangerous and impractical but unique to no end.

    I'm not sure you could even call it a gun, but when I was in the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum in cody Wyoming I saw a "watermelon patch gun. The thing looked like an old fashioned coffee grinder with a turret on top with a single barrel. There were metal guide rings around the edges which wires would pass through and connect with the turret. The theory was, you rig this thing in your watermelon patchwith the wires emanating out from it in a spoke pattern and staked to the ground. When someone would come into your patch to steal a melon, they would trip one of the wires. The turret would turn towards the wire that had been tripped and a striker would ignite a black powder charge behind some shot and pepper the alleged melon snatcher. :what:

    you are a better man than me for even wanting to shoot that thing. I can imagine having the hammer come back and implant itself in my forehead :(

    I'm going to say the most over-hyped weapon ever is the Desert Eagle.

    Used by every movie toughguy for shiny and bing.

    The MAG-7 is rather an odd duck as well as the Neostead.

    Proably the Most gun I have seen was a old 1940s H&H in 700 Nitro Express

    This was in a side by side break-action and as you can imagine it was big, the wood, the barrle, everthing about it. the bullets were 1000 grain and the Pricetag for the gun was $75,000 (iirc)

    I havent personally seen it, but a co worker has a lunchbox gatiling gun he built himself. Its a hand-crank .22lr.

    He was a machinist. He and his co workers were told to look busy shortly after a rumor surfaced that the jobs were going to mexico. So he made most of it himself.

    the 700 Nitro Express was invented in 1988. perhaps the 600 Nitro? (1903)

    Preacher-

    I've been looking for that for years (not to buy), just to prove it exists.

    I saw this in a handgun magazine yesterday and thought it was quite interesting.
