    HOT GAT or FUDD CRAP? Top Five Worst Gats of 2019

    Welcome everyone to a very special edition of ‘Hot Gat or Fudd Crap?’, one of our many series here on TFB. If you’re new to the series, this is where we usually look at the most obscure firearms that are actually for sale and ask the question – is this Gat a sweet deal or only have Fudd appeal?  

    In one of 2019’s final installments of HGFC, our poll showed that you the readers, decided the 24 Karat AK was Fudd Crap.

    At this time the original auction has ended, and the custom engraved AK has sold for a whopping $7,500.  Congratulations to buyer Alvaro A on the purchase of your new golden gat.  

    In this week’s edition of HGFC, we’re looking back over the past 35 editions to find the worst of the worst.  Based on the input you’ve given us, this is what we found.

    Top Five Worst Gats of 2019

    #5 – Beast Bullpup or Fudd Throw Up?

    Coming in at Number 5 is the Cerakoted FN PS90.  You, the readers, decided by an 84.9% margin that this was Fudd Crap.

    This year HGFC has seen its fair share of terrible Cerakote jobs.  The beast bullpup sticks out like the non-paid advertisement for monster energy it is.

    Probably built for the failed invasion of Area-51 this PS90 isn’t going anywhere fast.

    #4 – Custom Mac-11: Devil Spawn or Hellish Abortion?

    Coming in at Number 4 was the Spawn themed Mac-11 losing by 85.3% margin.

    Battling it out for the top spot in terrible Cerakote jobs landed the Spawn themed Mac-11.  Not only is this cringeworthy to look at, but do people really like semi-auto MAC’s?

    At least this MAC isn’t a transferable machine gun and shall remain confined to the depths of someone’s basement for the time being.

    #3 – True Grit or Rhinestone Cowboy?

    Number 3 goes to the F1-Firearms Custom AR-15 that lost with 85.8% of readers deeming it Fudd Crap.

    Number three’s edition reminded us that heavily modified doesn’t mean it’s justified.  This F-1 Firearms custom AR was missing way too much of, well everything.

    With the auction starting at $3,480, this impossible to clean AR-15 was destined to go no-where fast.

    #2 – Abused & Mutilated Johnson M1941 

    At the number 2 spot, we have the horribly modified Johnson M1941.  You, the readers, decided by an 87% margin that this was Fudd Crap.

    Re-chambered in .338-06 this Johnson Rifle was over modified inside and out.

    This attempt to make this old rifle into a modern created one of the biggest monstrosities of the series.

    It’s hard to put into words how painful this M1941 is to look at, but we can only hope someone has the parts on hand to return it to its former glory.

    #1 – “‘Hell Yeah, Brother’ or ‘I Live with my Mother’”

    At the number 1 spot, we have the undisputed worst of the worst.  The overly tactical and not practical modified Remington 870.  You, the readers, decided by a whopping 94% margin that this was Fudd Crap.

    Built in what appeared to be an abandoned door factory was this 12lb (dry weight) tacticool 870.

    Every inch of this 870 was loaded full of budget accessories you would expect to find on Wish.com.

    This 21 shell toting 870 is hands down the least practical shotgun I’ve ever seen.  Even the H&R Pardner Zombie Apocalypse shotgun has more utilitarian uses (like cutting firewood with your sweet stock-axe).  Needless to say, I don’t see this 870 selling for $840 anytime soon.

     

    But What do you think?  Does this list reflect what you think was the worst?  Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned for next week when we look at the Top 5 Hottest Gats of 2019.
