One of those rarest of firearms: a gun so ugly straight from the factory, its difficult to make it any worse (hot pink paint jobs excepted). The Australian Owen submachine, Down Under's version of the Sten. Although this received the paint job after leaving the armory, stripping it off wouldn't do anything to lessen the impression that it was something assembled in a welder's shop after a long day of straight whiskey, or worse. On the positive side, they supposedly were very reliable in function, which is what counts in the end. But it's still damn ugly.
