The French P-90.

Don't know whether to try and play it, or use it to try and unclog the toilet.
I love that pdw. Maybe it was just Star Gate or Call of Duty, but I like the way it looks. Lol

It is a 22 caliber pistol even though it looks like a toy. Never shot it never will.
It looks like its made from some pot-metal zinc alloy.

Mine has a steel cylinder and, I think, a sleeved barrel.

The rest is made of pasta.

I have had toy guns that were made of better stuff than this thing, but I always thought it would be a good conversation piece. This is an American Classic the real deal Saturday Night Special pot metal suprise.

It is marked 22 SHORT on the barrel and I can make out DM PROD INC. NEW YORK NY but looks like there could be a C or S under that screw. Any way it is still one ugly gun.

Y'all really haven't plumbed the depths of "ugly" yet.





Helfricht Model 3 .25 ACP made from 1920 to 1929.

You'll wake up from a drug induced sleep and find yourself in a small square shaped room that has chain link gates in the walls in it.

Behind each gate will be starving (possibly rabid) rottweiler dogs.

Laying on the floor next to you will be a Glock pistol (haven't really given much thought of the size and caliber yet) and a few Glock hi--cap mags.

If you survive, we'll see if your irrational Glock hate still exists.
Oh yeah, back to this.....it’s like an escape room huh......
Take magazines out of the guns, beat the crap outta the locks, open gates and hand the dog his new chew toy. Walk out easy peasy. Not a shot fired.
You only have 15 seconds though until the dog gets pissed at the quality of the toy!

Honestly Officer, I didn't shoot him. I think the dog's toenail must have brushed against the goofy hinged trigger.

I'll give that it's small. That's so it doesn't make that much noise when the average French soldier drops it while surrendering.

1907 Dreyese 32 auto is definitely in the running. I have a safe place in my safe for that 1892 Bouchardt auto.

But, it's a kind of a "cute ugly".

That Helfricht has an ugly secret too.

The bore axis is low and the barrel so short. I have large hands with long fingers. If I shoot it with a two-handed hold I have to take care that my left index finger doesn't stray in front of the muzzle. First time I had it out shooting it, I was playing "kick the can" down the road to our old lake cabin. Grasped it in a two-handed hold and suddenly the hair on the back of my neck stood up. Yep, don't know what triggered a warning, but I was about to shoot off the tip of my finger.

I guess you're not a fan of the Colt 1903 then.

Yeah, I just cringed a bit!
I wonder how many that has happened to that have just claimed they slammed a door on their finger!

I thought of the Nambu, but then I remembered the Borchardt.

This thing hit every branch of the ugly tree on the way down, hit a rock, broke in two, and one half of it became the Luger p08
I'd give a kidney to own a Borschardt... with a shoulder stock, of course.

I'm surprised nobody mentioned this one yet. Either that or else I missed it. Japanese Nambu Type 94... a gun only Ian of Forgotten Weapons could love.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Sure it looks odd but not only was that shape needed to accommodate the action. And nobody knew what an auto handgun was supposed to look like anyhow.

The first car (Benz) had 3 wheels and a tiller for steering. An odd duck for sure. When you're the first you have no reference.

Btw, I happen to think that the 1911 is a GREAT looking gun. But I also think that the 1903/1908 beats it. Hey, it's not sacrilege to say that because JMB was the genius behind both..
From a TOKAREV FAN: The Tokarev is based on Browning's pre 1911 design - & very similar to Colt 1903/1908. The M88A Compact Tokarev - has a more pleasing grip shape, & is AS narrow, light, & nearly as compact, as one of Browning's early Colts - & sell in the $200. price range. I'd buy a few more If I could.

I LOVE the Nambu 94. It has the look & vibe of a 1950's /1960's Japanese tin toy ray gun.

It's hokey & dated as a "futuristic" gun for a future that never happened.

Freakin' fantastic. If I ever have to play the role of a soldier in a English sub-titled black & white Godzilla movie, that's my gun.

Or.................... If I need a gun to carry when I drive my Mazda Cosmo to a Maid Cafe.

...................................sigh.......I can only dream.
