FN PS90 – Supreme Bling Edition

Wait. Just hear me out. Before you start yelling at your computer screen or phone about “abominations”  or “hideousness” I’d like you to take a closer look at the detail that went into modifying this one-of-a-kind FN PS-90. And yes, this is the real deal, not some airsoft mockup.

Unique Firearms recently posted this gold plated build on their Instagram feed. Although they did not return any comments related to their business or specifics on the build, browsing the rest of the guns they have modified over the years it appears Unique Firearms has a discriminating client list. Pistols, ARs, AKs and more are all modified to the extreme. Featuring detailed engraving, a range of finishes and other customizations normally only seen on movie guns, Unique Firearms is not your ordinary builder.

Back to the topic at hand – yes this custom FN looks like something Elvis might want in his collection (you know, if he was alive). But judging from the dates associated with the build process, the craftsmanship that went into the final product took almost a year to complete. Although it isn’t not my style, I can appreciate the level of detail it took to build such a unique gun.

Final question: How much would you guess this PS90 cost the customer?

  • Dracon1201

    I LOVE IT

  • Mattie Dimes

    I think it looked better in chrome before gold plating. Impressive workmanship even if I don’t like the final product.

  • Joe

    Does anyone recognize the optic?

    • JBurridge

      It’s a DI Optical EG1. I have one, it’s my favorite red dot. They needed to dip it in gold though.

      • Pete – TFB Writer

        Cool. Thanks. Why is it your favorite?

  • Patrick Karmel Shamsuddoha

    beautiful !!!

  • Dougscamo

    Sorry Pete…..ABOMINATION…..HIDEOUSNESS….oh, you were talking about the bling and not the PS-90….retreats to reloading shed…..

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      Ha. Well done.

  • iksnilol

    green vector camo and gold?

    These folks would fail any art class.

    • SP mclaughlin

      I read “vector camo” and immediately thought about this thing covered in Kriss Vector outlines.

      • iksnilol

        OH SWEET BABY JESUS, that’s a mighty dangerous imagination you get there, pardner.

    • Amplified Heat

      Serious plaid/polka-dot fashion faux-pas, there
      “I don’t get it, there’s just this shiny gold PS90 receiver floating in the brush, shooting at us!”

  • Scott Tuttle

    saddam hussein is drooling in his grave

  • The Blinded One

    The Spanish muzzle engraving is a nice touch. At first glance, people might think this belonged to a third world despot or Saudi oil prince rather than a Mexican drug kingpin.

    • Anonymoose

      Yeah, but those guys usually prefer Browning Hi-Powers, Pythons, Enfields, and double-rifles. Cartel guys love them some 5.7.

      • iksnilol

        Dem cop killah boolits are fayaaah!

    • Tonewall Jaxon

      whats the difference.

      • The Blinded One

        One group speaks the same language as my gardener. The other speaks in scribbles. That’s it.

  • 11b

    Apparently their ‘discriminating client list’ includes El Chapo Guzman.

    • David Harmon

      Gotta gangster in style….

    • Nomar Abdiel Vazquez Vazquez

      or the owner is a regular law-abiding citizen that likes that aesthetic.

    • m1ckDELTA

      Precisely what I was thinking.

  • BenJamin

    If ever I become a dictator or a druglord, I’ll definitely be giving this guy a call

  • Boris Pistoff

    The inscription at the end of the barrel reads in Spanish “El Rey de la Muerte.” Translated into English would read as “The King of Death” or “Death’s King.” Who owns this thing? Only the makers of this gun would know. Ask them!

    • Amplified Heat

      Undoubtedly “new money” sorts; ain’t no one with class gonna blow money on this travesty

    • Evan

      Some Mexican drug lord, clearly.

  • JoshCalle

    WANT IT WANT IT WANT WANT WANT I WANT THE NARCO GUN SO BAD.

  • So that’s what happens when the System Lords start to copy SG-1’s technology.

    • Bob

      I bought a PS90 and SBR’ed it because of SG-1…. LOVE THAT SHOW!

      • PK

        Same! My enjoyment of SG-1 and Stargate in general is responsible for my most expensive guns, overall.

      • Mike Crognale

        I did EXACTLY the same thing. Nice to know someone else has the bug. LOL I have all the seasons on DVD. Atlantis as well though I didn’t care for that one as much.

  • Ratcraft

    After seeing that, the wall just got 10 feet higher….

  • Nicholas C

    Yikes. I prefered the Akira Kaneda Bike themed P90

    • Derrick Delgado

      ROFL! Never ever thought I would see someone say that. I almost agree.

  • Andrew Benton

    That camo is awful…. black would look sweet.

    • iksnilol

      Or wood, wood would go well with the gold.

      • SkonOfVulcan

        With tiger eye or pearl inlays. Alternately plate it with rhodium instead of gold and bleached wood with turquoise and a Navaho theme.

        • iksnilol

          you got taste, not bad at all.

  • A bearded being from beyond ti

    Elvis is alive, and so is JFK, who’s actually black.

    • Independent George

      Hurray for Bubba Ho-Tep references.

    • .45

      “Elvis isn’t dead son, he just went home.”

      • Joshua

        lo and behold, someone has already made my comment.

        why must you make such a great reference ‘sir?

        • .45

          I have my moments is all.

  • AC97

    It looked better before the gold, but at least you could tell a lot of work went into it.

    I think that silver/stainless steel is more visually appealing than gold, especially on guns, as I believe it’s kinda dumb to show off like that. Less in your face and all that.

  • John

    I’m glad to see someone at least did a different gun.

    It’s always some kind of AKM getting gold-plated. It’s never an FAL. It’s never a SCAR. I don’t see gold-plated SMLEs or Remington 700s or MP5s or many different types of pistols.

    I don’t see a gold-plated MANPADS, which frankly WOULD be awesome and a true mark of power and wealth.

    Rarely do I even see revolvers done up in this, which is a platform that deserves the Midas touch.

    There’s no accounting for taste.

  • Malthrak

    While the client appears to have the taste of a south american drug cartel lord or a middle eastern dictator, the craftsmanship itself is actually pretty outstanding.

  • Giolli Joker

    That much waste of money and no 200$ in a stamp to make the gun look as it should.

  • Edeco

    Cheesy. I can see some flaws in the paint such as the gold running thru a seam, and the gold plating fkaking or missing in the last pic. Sloppy low-overhead ammeteur polishing, makes the edges look melted. Folk-art western-belt-buckle grade engraving… notice the sloppy dimples for in-fill.

  • Disarmed in CA

    “If I had only known you were… EL Rey….”

  • Audie Bakerson

    All that expense and they don’t even bother SBRing it?

    • TJbrena

      Literally the first thing I thought.

    • Amplified Heat

      To be fair, cutting the barrel down on a PS90 is kind of a butt-pain (more than you’d think, anyway). Depending on location, replacement P90 barrels may be in short supply, as well (ITAR restrictions on barrel shipments)

      • iksnilol

        Hacksaws aren’t that hard to use.

        • Amplified Heat

          There’s a bit more to it than that…

          • iksnilol

            Oh yeah, you gotta crown the muzzle.

          • Amplified Heat

            -Carefully slice barrel shroud pin free
            -Carefully remove captive/bent shroud pin
            -Cut/crown barrel
            -Cut back shroud & reweld to match new barrel length

            You know, unless you don’t mind a barrel with no muzzle brake and which freely slides back & forth in the receiver about 1/8″ instead of being returned forward by a spring against the shroud. The true P90 barrel is much more straightforward, with a screw-on muzzle brake that the barrel return spring thrusts against.

          • iksnilol

            Meh, just notch the barrel and put on a spring that rests against the muzzle device of your choice. Make sure it’s a mighty powerful spring tho.

          • Amplified Heat

            Watch a Youtube instructional; trust me, FNH made it a butt-pain to SBR these things cheaply/easily, probably at the ATF’s urging. The barrel spring is soft, btw, and is there to allow rearward movement as part of the extraction timing (you can blow cases if the barrel is fixed). That’d still work with a loose barrel, but accuracy and feeding would likely suffer if it stays to the rear after extraction.

        • undeRGRound

          I totally get the LOL part of your name, but what’s the rest of it mean? 😀 https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6f50750ec1e429e4f4fa8226744ac002650fb9a5d8544e4f83b71d5f0896d866.jpg

  • nadnerbus

    Liberace’s PS90. Can’t wait to see this again in a DEA bust.

    Coming soon to a Call of Duty supply drop near you. Only 20 bucks in CoD points for our sucker-, er esteemed customers.

    • TJbrena

      Try Rainbow 6 Siege.

  • Uniform223

    Gucci is missing out on this huge market of people putting stupid “bling” accessories on their firearms.

  • 7n6

    Looks like this one is headed south of the border……….

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      Or it’s already there…

    • HemingwaysBeard

      Operation Fast & Furious 2.0…

    • DW

      The wall is to keep this in, so Mexicans can not ever pay for it

  • noob
  • Sven79

    That gold really works with the camo, I could barely see it.

  • Bjørn Vermo

    What a stingy customer! They should have replaced the plastic with ivory.

    • Amplified Heat

      …and inlaid with the beaks of a thousand eagles…

  • Frank Grimes

    So somebody can afford a gold plated PS90, but not a good optic?

    What a weirdo.

  • Vince Campanile

    That is absolutely gloriously hideous!

  • Leigh Rich

    I’d take that into combat!

    • Realist

      Make sure your MRAP or Hummer has spinners…nothing says I want to kill you better than “riding dirty” with some spinners.

      • iksnilol

        Don’t forget the hydraulic suspension. Gotta ride low.

  • Realist

    Yo, yo, yo…now that’s what I call a gat.

  • MichaelZWilliamson
  • maodeedee

    A picture of this hideous abomination might be good to have handy to induce vomiting in case of a medical emergency.

  • Duke of URL

    So they’ve narrowed their market to the Latin American Drug Cartel bosses…

  • WRBuchanan

    Yes El Chapo probably was the inspiration for that one.

    If you go to Oxnard CA on any Sunday you can see the real inspiration for this gun driving around town in the form of Mexican Low Riders.

    What the creators of this gun missed was the 1/4″ square gold metal flakes in the paint!

    This is why God made Mexicans. I can prove it!

    It also proves the point “that there is no accounting for taste.”

  • Tp

    Better idea, shall have a mini gun engraved with an advancing army of death staged a bit farther on each barrel, so it looks like a movie when the barrels fire up, like a old old old time movie that you put 2 bits in, and cranked the handle

  • m1ckDELTA

    The shot of the woman in fishnets with the low rider in the background is on a backlot.
