Ugly Gun Sunday

The KRISS Super V XSMG System. An excellent example of form following function. There's absolutely nothing about this system that even gives a nod to aesthetics. Even so, an MP 38 or Mac 10 seems to have something more to it than this for appearance.

As a quick aside: If I'm running around in the field, I'll take moderns synthetics over wood any day, preferably in a color that blends in, no matter how ugly it is. If it won't swell, crack, chip, or break, or weigh more, I'm all for it. I'm practical that way. But on the appreciation side, it's still ugly.

Reminds of a cheap nailgun made in China at first glance.
