Ugly Gun Sunday



Another Krylon Commando special. This one was a Turkish Mauser at one time. As the author of the webpage I found this on states, many people feel that "thousands going for $39 and up. With prices like these, even if the gun dies during surgery, who cares?" I bet people used to say that about well-used but original Ford Model Ts back in the day, before buying them for their kid to chop into a piece of crap jalopy for high school. Those aren't to0 common anymore, and original Mausers won't be for much longer either. Pity.

It's not THAT bad. Camouflaging rifles is a trick snipers use, and Krylon works. That looked like a fairly well thought out job. I know it makes one who loves blue and walnut cringe, who think synthetic stocks and flat finishes are just frakking ugly, but there's a purpose.

I'm a Mauser fan so there really is nothing that's TOO ugly of a Mauser.

But they tried. :-)
