I got into this conversation at the local gun shop today, what is the oddest gun you own? For me it would have to be my pre-ban Calico Liberty I. I've only seen 2 of them and only one new in box one (wich is now mine [:D]) So what is the oddest or weirdest gun you own? [rail]

Sears 12 Guage Bolt Action Goose Gun. HUGE barrel on it, you could bring down a high altitude bomber with it

i don't know how 'odd' this is, but i have Marlin 700 .22 rifle. Not very pretty, but shoots pretty well after some 'smithing.

I got some strange looks today at the indoor range shooting .32 ACP out of my Russian M44 (chamber insert). It is fun (and suprisingly accurate).

My .410/.45 LC revolver 5 shot! Forgot what it was called, or who made it. It was a lot of fun to shoot but I couldn't carry it, ammo was spendy and the damn cylinder was so heavy it was all wobbly and crap when unlocked. I figured the cylinder arm was going to fall off or break soon, so I sold it.

A friend of mine got an m44 and he ended up butchering up the stock and cutting the barrel down to 17.5in. Now it has no front sight and a 3' flame comes out the barrel . He didn't know what to do with it so he gave it to me. Its just sitting there now waiting for me to do something with it. I don't know what, though. Oh well... just another ugly gun. -bricklayer

hmm most odd looking ? id have to say my beretta BM-59 kinda looks like a refined m1a with a 6" flash supressor on the end leave it to the itialians to make a sexy looking firearm

Mine whould have to be a pre-ban Calico M-100 with 4 100rd drums to go with it. This thing is great only mag you can get is 100rd so it is a true High cap gun. When I pull it out at the range eveyone comes to look at it (it has that space gun look to it) and I can blast away all day for a few bucks. SCAR

I think I have you all you guys beat. I have a British Enfield receiver mated to a 50 bmg barrel. It goes bang every time you pull the trigger, is a hoot to shoot, but because it has no muzzle break, I always go home with a bruised shoulder.

Mossberg 151M[b].It has a peep sight ,open rear,Front with 4 diffrent blades ect and hood.Mossbers 4X scope.All factory.Mannlicher stock.If they would have had red dots lasers and scout scopes back then,it probally would have had those too.

[:D] The Calico's are just weird guns. lol. Maybe that's why I love them. Reliable, Acurate, Weird....A great combination [rail]

Bayard Model 1908 in .380. Barrel in the frame and the slide is above it. Smallest 5 shot .380 I've ever seen, 4.75 x 3.25 x .625. [url]http://members.aol.com/bayard1908/[/url] Mine is much nicer than the example shown. Bought it for a carry piece, and used it as such for about 5 years. But I lost confidence in the safety of a striker fired weapon 90 years old in an IWB holster and retired it.

Back in 1987 I thought my Glock 17 was pretty weird. I remember showing to a friend who'd never handled a real gun before. He looked puzzled, and after looking it over, he said " It looks cool but were is the real one?" He thought it was a toy. Back then, the Glock was totally different. Now everybody seems to be making a polymer pistol.

I met the owner of Calico a few years ago, he let me shoot a suppressed full-auto M100 machine gun with a fully loaded 100 rd drum. I put my finger on the trigger and didn't let go until the drum was empty. Man that was heaven. But that suppressor caused a huge cloud of smoke to accumulate under our awning though.

My WUM-2, because it's in 5.45x39mm. A weird caliber to be sure.

I had one of those, too about 10 years ago. It was a nifty little thing you could unscrew the barrel off it real quick and keep it in a small duffle bag.I used to keep it in it's origina box, it was a small white plain box. I thought that was odd, to. I remember looking for mags was a pain in the butt though. I ended up selling it for a hundred more than I paid for it because of the cool factor it had... John

1903 springfield with heavy target stock that fires .22 LR... haven't researched it, but think it was a military training rifle. Has "M2" stamped on the barrel and receiver. Looks like brand new and has extra mag still in the wrap. Was given to me by my brother-in law about a year ago. If anyone knows anything about these rifles, I would appreciate the info.

It depends on who you ask. Some people would tell you its my Bushmaster. I get the usual "what do you need that for?". Otherwise I don't own anything "weird". Unless you count my Polytech M-14. It talks to me, in Chinese. Thats weird isn't it?

How about a percussion cap 12ga shotgun with front and rear sights? My dad said it was a firearm from South Africa. I haven't done the research on the piece, so I don't know the manufacturer or its date. I keep saying I'll do it soon. Do I win?

I have got one that's is weird. The Stery GB pistol.

Out of everything that I own, the Sprinfield M6 Scout is the oddest that I have. Sporting a single shot .22 in the upper barrel and a .410 in the lower barrel. NO trigger guard(trigger is a large lever instead of a small regular trigger) holds several .22s and .410s in the stock, ALL METAL, it breaks down in the middle with one pull-ring and is flat olive drab. Mine looks like the one pictured but is an older/original/American modle (the one pictured is "postban" and made in the Check Republik for Springfield) NO trigger guard and is flat olive drab.
