For me it would be a polytech legend tapco'd and duracoated. A runner up would be a carryhandle mount and a BSA red dot on a colt SP1.

1-Any deliberate destruction of firearms by my government
2-Any deliberate destruction of firearms by any other government
3-A vintage Colt commercial 1911 (Not 1911A1) with the trigger guard removed.
4-An M1C with the original mount discarded and the reciever drilled and tapped in a different pattern for an oddball commercial scope mount

Saw a picture once of an AR-15 that had been thrown down a guy's driveway...

I pissed off a Drill Instructor once and he grabbed my rifle by the barrel, swung it like a baseball bat and let it go flying down the middle of the squadbay. It was flat spinning in the air and when it hit the deck the handguards went flying off. The horror of this story is that I still had to qualify with that very rifle later on. Shot Expert by the way.

Saw many an AK in Iraq taken to these garage gunsmiths to be chopped down and nickel plated. What came back was a useless pistol sized piece of bling bling shit. Our Iraqi Commando Officers used to like to have one of these to show their status. They would even have the mag cut to either a 15 or 20 round capacity and also nickeled out.

An AK that was used by an ANA soldier in A-Stan. The front sight post was cut off, and the stock was cut off where the screws were. The pistol grip, and stock nub was covered with yellow tape. On the barrel he had a 7.62x39 round attached by a metal link.

Ishapore 2A1 that had been touted as a "1943 Experimental .308 British Enfield" at a gun show last month.

The sellers had scrubbed the original RFI markings, and added them again with a crude 1943 stamped instead despite the 2A1 marking. On the barrel it was stamped .308 instead of 7.62mm. They also have a very crude stamped dog tag with "1943" & "Experimental .308" stamped on it. All for the low sale price of $650.

On Gunbroker, I saw a Ruger #1 in 45/70 dura-coated black with a fiberglass or painted black stock. This was all topped off with a howitzer muzzle break.

I should have bought it and made it right, but the seller wanted a pretty penny for his crimes.

I saw the same thing happen in my platoon. My DI's threw a lot of M16s down the drive way so to speak. It was after seeing them beat up in this manner, and them still shooting straight that cemented my belief in the durability of the M16.

Nothing a new set of stocks and a couple days soaking in MEK won't cure.

When I was in Bosnia they took an entire conex box of confiscated weapons, put them all on the road with their barrels on the curb, and ran them over with a tank.

We're talking mostly AK's, a bunch of SKS's and bolt guns. However there were some pristine MG42's and GI Tommy guns that got the same treatment. I couldn't watch. Buddy of mine took some pics, but they're on my old computer and I haven't gotten them off the drive yet.

M16's used as pry bars to assemble cots.

Had a guy who left one on the tread of one of our M58's. Didn't survive.

Link Posted: 9/18/2009 1:50:38 PM EST
Shooting specialty ammo like dragon breath (shoots a 10 ft ball of fire out of a 12Ga shotgun) and then waiting a few days before cleaning the barrel. I immediately sprayed the barrel with WD-40 until I cleaned it but it pitted the shot gun horribly. Fortunately that barrel was not rifled. It was highly corrosive ammo.

You're assuming they didn't prep the surface by sand or bead blasting it.

Look at that paint job. You think they actually took the time to prep the metal before doing that atrocity?

Ooooh, I've got a doozie.

I met a guy at Big 5 (another customer) who told me he had a mosin nagant in his truck that he'd sell for $20. That piqued my interest, so I followed him out to this nasty little subaru "truck" only to find the most horribly bubba'd rifle I had ever seen in my life. It was a Yugo M24/47, btw.

The stock was cut down like most sporterization attempts. The cut was poorly made and it was too close to the receiver. The whole stock was painted with thick black latex paint, which had tons of drip marks. The bolt handle was cut off and crudely welded at a bent angle by a very amateur welder. The receiver crest was blowtorched off. The barrel was cut off to about 20" with a hack saw, and an aftermarket ramped front sight was welded on.

Lots of corrosive ammo had been shot through it, and it was not cleaned afterwards, so the bore was a rusty, pitted sewer pipe.

I bought the gun for $10, as that was all the cash I had on me. Cleaned it up best I could, stripped off the paint, and wound up getting $70 for the parts!

I wish I had pics, sadly I did not have a camera at the time...

My first year in the Army, we were doing a relod with an MLRS Rcket Launcher. My gunner set his M16 with the butt stock on the top of the engie compartment with the barrel leaning against the top of the cab. Basically pointing up and down but leaning at an angle.

Gunner went to stow the reload section of the launcher and all I hear is this huge crushing sound. Freaking thing broke every piece of the gun. Snapped the buttstock and buffer tube off, bent the upper and lower receiver, the barrel and broke the hand guards off. Gunner is in big time trouble for crushing his M16.

Chief says "I got an idea". He grabs all the broken parts and throws them in the road. Then he ground guides me forward so the number two road wheel is sitting on the broken M16 parts pile with the barrel sticking out the side. Then he get's on the radio and tells the platoon sergeant we had an accident.

Platoon sergeant shows up and my chief tells him, he was pulling air guard and I hit a big bump and he lost his grip on the M16. He yelled for me to stop but the 28 ton track was slow to respond and didn't stop until I ran over the M16. Platoon sergeant bought it hook line and sinker.

Gunner turn his M16 into the arms room in a gunny sack.

I've seen a "sporterized" M1 Garand, with ALL the best Fudd bells & whistles...

Polished and blued finish on receiver and barrel
Jeweled operating rod
Polished stock w/ handguard removed to expose the jeweled op rod
Stock capped by a polished buttplate
Polished rear sight adjusting drums

Were I to fall into ownership of such a rifle, I would have cut it up to put it out of its' misery.

Hmm.

Extreme lack of maintenance, and I mean zero maintenance, to very expensive guns, by shooters who are smarter than that, just lazy.
