By Franken in this case I mean a potentially new pistol that seems to be the result of the combination of parts leftover or originally from other SKUs. It doesn't have to be used, and often isn't. I can name some car manufacturers that do this too
Understood - was primarily referring to Jackalope's comment about buying used SIGs, which are generally no more hazardous than buying any other used pistol.

Your definition of Franken-gun sounds more like the way way FN handled contract Hi-Powers or Colt produces 1911s - "parts bin guns" that use up supplies of new old-stock parts in new guns, making for numerous variations in production with no different designations.
