Isn't that just unbelievable, Neo? First, that someone would even DO something like that to a gun? Let alone then advertize it for SALE - and for $2,500????
OH my GOSH!!!!!!
That sort of thing brings out the humanitarian in me. It's like seein' a sad-eyed puppy at the pound, and you want to rescue it because you know it's about to be put down. I'd do that in this case - I'd try to rescue and restor the gun, for even as much as $200. But, at $2,500, this one'll just have to go on and get euthanized.
I don't know. But what I'm wondering about is the midset of the builder! How can ANYONE take a bandsaw and who knows what chopping implements, carve up a gun like that, leave every single "modification" with rough, uneven edges and gouges, and have an idea that he could sell it as a "customized" pistol for $2,500? It just defies understanding.
At least as far as I can remember, that is the worst butcher job of a pistol I have ever seen from a pro or an amateur. And I'm not even talking about the mods themselves, but just the quality of the work!
The Army was toying with a personal weapon system that employed a rifle similar to that one. Their idea was that ops controlers could literally get a "gunsight" view of the fight. The screen allowed a soldier to poke their gun around a corner and fire semi accurately without exposing themselves to return fire.
The Army system also included remote monitoring of troops' vitals, hyper accurate gps location plotting, enhanced, hands free comms, and (I think) a heads up display in their helmets showing gunsight view of their weapon, target aquisition of other sources, drone surveillance video, and even video, audio, and text input from their control.
I guess the next generation of experiments will seek to implant all that tech so we can field the T-101 model of Terminator. I just hope they won't all have that accent.
