Pimp/Cartel/Dictator Guns Pic Thread

Anyone have or have pics have some "pimp guns"? I'm not talking about just a nice BBQ gun (although some of those can be borderline).

I want to see stuff that is REAL (some say gawdy or tacky) flashy in a style best suited for occupations like "purveyor of the easy ladies," "unelected el presidente for life," or "chief distribution officer for an unlicensed pharmaceutical company."

Firearms with features like gold plating, pearl grips (thank you, Gen. Patton), over the top engraving, etc...

Ya' know what I mean? Guns that just say "high class and sophistication" like a purple velvet hat, military uniforms covered in self-awarded medals or classic cars with heavy metal flake paint jobs and gold wire spoke wheels.

Let's see some pictures of these type of guns. Why? Because deep down inside if any of us became billionaires, we would all probably own one of them to display on the wall. (Admit it. LOL.)

This is the first time I have seen one of these... a fully engraved Heckler & Koch MP5K!

It's not "ad nauseum blinged out" like most of the cartel guns or "pseudo sleazy" like the pimp firearms. It's more "silly extravagant" like the stuff dictators tend own.

Take a look here.

I guess you consider this thread "ultimate BBQ guns" or something because I despise the term "pimp guns". Anyways, here are two that I thought were special. First, is a full engraved gold inlaid S&W Registered Magnum (the RM was the first 357 magnum of all time, debuted in 1935). This gun had a second barrel added to it to make a set, and that barrel was engraved and inlaid as well. Then someone made a custom case for it with custom tools. It wears custom roper grips as well. It was on display at the NRA convention last year in Pittsburgh. The gun also graced the cover of the Gun digest.




Next is a famous pistol, owned by one of the most hated / famous world leaders of all time, Adolph Hitler. This one was owned by him, not some fake. The grips are ivory, with his initials gold inlaid. This is NOT the pistol he commited suicide with.

Why indeed?

There are some nasty guns out there. Those kind of creatures have twisted tastes.

Absolutely beautiful Luger. A new firearms art form: reality customizing. Thank goodness it has not been uglified by rails and other "tactical" thingies.

Tuzo.... nor has the zinc it is made from been worn out from use as it never fed right from the beginning. I was gonna sink it then I thought I would "engrave" it being that I had a spare safety pin.

What a clunk the Erma Luger was.

Lavan - that P-08 has amazing embellishments that would make Bubba proud.

Because of my prowess with the ladies and my penchant for order and the rule of iron fisted law, I posted a picture of my prettiest gun.

There is nothing pimp about that gun. I own a pair with altamont grips. It's a fancy cowboy gun and MAYBE could pass as a BBQ gun. Pimp it is not though.

The High Power is nickel plated. The trigger is gold plated.
The grips are imitation pearl.

Just a gentle reminder to the OP, none of Patton's side arms had "pearl" grips, the revolvers sported IVORY stocks, with his initials engraved into them.

I like how almost none of the guns are correctly identified in that article.

The Browning Hi-Power they call a 1911, the "machinegun" that's "possibly an AK-47" appears to be an SVD, and only one of the 2 pistols identified as a Makarov is indeed a Makarov, while the other appears to be a Star pistol which has next to nothing in common in with the Makarov.
