Welcome everyone to the 50th edition of ‘Hot Gat or Fudd Crap?’! HGFC is one of our many series here on TFB and today is our 50th instalment. What a wild ride it has been. If, somehow, you’re new to the series, you’ve missed out! This is where we look at the most obscure firearms that are actually for sale and ask the question – is this Gat a sweet deal or does it truly only have Fudd appeal? Each week the TFB staff weighs in with their thoughts, but readers get the final say in the poll at the bottom of each article.
In our last edition, our poll showed that you the readers deemed the 24k Aztec themed 1911 to be hot gat.
At this time, the original auction remains up, with this hot Aztec gat still up for grabs. Maybe it’s time for you to get that gold 1911 you’ve always wanted.
In this week’s special 50th edition of HGFC, I’ve picked five of my ‘favorite’ (although that description might be a little strong) firearms previously featured on the series. After going over each firearm I’ll let you, the reader, decide what was the absolute worst!
Hot Gat or Fudd Crap?
50th Fuddiversary Special
Nothing says Fudd more than a bolt action rifle with a scope. So hey, why not take the leap and ruin a piece of history while you’re at it?
Apparently, that is just what this builder had in mind when he cut up and sporterized this M1917 Enfield.
The most haunting part of this gun was the DIY muzzle brake. Maybe just suck it up and deal with the recoil. Anything is better than randomly drilling holes in your barrel.
I can only assume the creator of this shotgun was looking to win an award for most attachments ever equipped to a Remington 870.
With a dry weight of 12 pounds, this has to be one of the least practical firearms HGFC has ever featured.
This was a gun that was described by the seller as “sinister”. I’m going to safely assume he wrote this while watching a Punisher movie in his basement and daydreaming about home invasions.
The Glock 37, or more commonly known as “the Glock you’ve probably never heard of”, and for good reason.
Chambered in 45 GAP, the Glock 37 was a swing and a miss, but hey, that’s not stopping this guy from modifying every single inch of this one.
Not to worry though. He knows you’re a hater, and he’s already made his feelings known.
The zombie apocalypse shotgun is a perfect example of
why drugs are bad everything that shouldn’t be done to a firearm. This one is truly a HGFC classic.
A safe place to rest your shoulder? Who needs that when you can have an axe instead. What could go wrong?
Every inch of this gun was covered in something dangerous, and I don’t think there’s any way to safely transport it.
The M1941 Johnson rifle has a very storied history that was all completely and utterly ignored by this builder.
Rather than keeping any of the existing furniture, this Johnson Rifle got the full “Taciticool” overhaul in every way imaginable.
Re-Chambered in 338-06 and covered in AR accessories, this Johnson Rifle is every collector’s worst nightmare. I think it’s safe to say there’s no saving this rifle. I think it’s just time to part it out and call it quits.
