    What do you think?

    I am not talking some ultra obscure that only 5 were made ever. Something more mainstream.

    My vote is for the Luger P08.

    Doesn't get much uglier than that.

    It's all in the eye of the beholder, like they say. I actually think the P08 is one of the BEST looking pistols ever made :)

    I'm not so sure about the Luger but a Mauser Broomhandle would be pretty sweet..

    Some of the early French revolvers (and Belgian too) were pretty "interesting" to look at.

    I guess I have to say the Nagant Revolver.

    I dont think the Liberator is ugly, more like endearing.

    I used to think the Tokarev was ugly until I set it next to the Glock.

    Hi-Point pistol is on the short list, along with the XD.

    First time I've heard an XD called ugly. But I will agree with Hi Point. Darn things are functional though.....

    The Colt M1911 is the ugliest piece of crap ever built. The P08 however, is pure style.

    the Nagant is certainly not revered for it's beauty, but I would not say it is anywhere near the ugliest gun out there.

    I would have to say the Nambu was pretty ugly.

    If you have any PO8s you don't want, I'll take 'em! I've always loved the lines and the grip angle of that gun. I have a .22 imitation, old Erma LA22. The PO8 is quite simply a gun maker's precision work of art. If you'd posted a Broomhandle Mauser or a Russian Nagant revolver, I might understand, but the P08? SHEESH! Absolutely no taste in fine firearms, the only possible explanation for THAT!:confused:

    It's a toss up between Highpoint and Glock.

    My words exactly, and Glocks are beautiful!!
    Also: I find the Nagant revolver VERY interesting (after seeing a National Geographic show on it) and Nambu's are ugly as well as P08's.

    Lessee, likes the crappy 80 dollar Russian POS, hates the high end German work of art. Hmmmmm.....:D

    Takes two fingers to shoot a Nagant, and THAT'S in SINGLE ACTION. Even if it wasn't so fugly, I'd still prefer a Hi Point and I think they're fugly, too.
