I guess if you want to set the ports at 90 degrees, but none of that affects performance.
An A2 comes to mind.
And pretty much every other one that does not have balanced numbers of ports.
Sometimes you time a flash hider just to get the logo up on top or the wrench flats on the side.
Believe it or not, there are some customers that are into the cosmetics of the gun even more than the function.
They love to post their pictures on forums...
