Well...at least it has pretty grips.

I don't have any really, but I do have this one that's sort of ugly I suppose. It's a Sears-Roebuck 12 gauge pump that I got about 1978 or so. Paid $99.00 for it, new, with an extra 24" slug barrel.

The wood finish got worn quickly, so I just painted the thing camo. The camo has held up a lot better than the original finish.

It's ridden for miles mostly in Hanover County, Va, tossed in the back of a pickup, or bungee corded to the roll bar of my jeep, or simply in the crook of my arm or across my back on a sling. It carried 3", Number 1 buckshot "like a rifle", and never failed me. Every deer it was ever pointed at dropped, and didn't get up again.



It's the gun I've had the longest, and I don't suppose it will ever go anywhere else, as long as I'm here anyway.

Oh. I've got a couple of Glocks, but they don't count do they? I mean they come out of the box that way.

The old worn guns don't look ugly to me. They look like they have stories to tell.

When I think of ugly guns, I think of my Browning Buckmark.

With the factory paint splash paint job that apparently was inspired by a drunken 4th grader and the bottom $ cheap Hogue red grips I found, this looks like something from USC.

My UCLA grad wife finds it offensive. I prefer the term tacky or gaudy.

On the plus side, it does shoot well...

Here's my ugliest gun. It is what I believe to be a Marlin model 18 pump action .22 s, l, lr caliber. It was passed to me by my father. It was previously owned by my great uncle Tone, who served in the U.S. Cavalry under Pershing during the Mexican Incursion. The rifle has a Winchester barrel, which I suspect was installed sometime during the Great Depression. It shoots and functions great.

Kel Tec's CP33........... and I thought my PMR 30 was ugly...... (well, I guess the ugly didn't go away, it just got beat)

They're both good shooters actually, butt UUUUU-GLY!

One of mine is the 1917 below: at some time in the last 100 years, it fell on some hard times. Itís ugly as sin; it has no original finish and a ton of corrosion, but itís right at home in a saddle bag or a tool box. It shoots just fine: itís a real truck gun.



Letís see your ugly guns!
I don't have many, but there's not a ugly one among them.

Have a blessed day,

Leon

Not the worst I have or have had, but one I have a pic of anyway.
Colt New Service from 1905 (IIRC)
45 Colt caliber
Great bore and action the outside not so great.

It just looked lonely sitting in with a bunch of plastic wonder pistols at show a couple yrs back, so it came home with me.




I have a Stevens Favorite in 25cal somewhere that is really a rusty pitted end to end with broken tang garden stake at best. But I think I can save it,,it's a good project.
The lever works!
I'll get it out and post a pic or two.

Are those cartridges for the original chamber or did you have it rechambered? How's the recoil? Inquiring minds want too know. Larry

This one has to be the winner so far but that Buckmark is running a close second!

A friend gave me a bunch of pistols and parts a few years back. Most of the pistols were missing parts, but this one was all there.



It's a Dan Wesson Model 14-2. It has no finish, lots of dings and cuts, and is missing both grip medallions. It had black electrical tape wrapped around the grips and covering up the medallion holes. It's tight and shoots fine, but its had a rough life for sure!
