The men with the golden guns: Mexican museum displays 'narco bling' weaponry confiscated from drug lords


#1

Was watching El Chapo, an episode where a 1911 was being crafted, thought to look them up,

wow!


#2

Bet those golden gun don’t fire many rounds. Gold’s pretty easy to melt, right?


#3

Nice 1911! Too pretty to shoot though


#4

Gold paint only, rest of gun is normal


#5

decorated with gold,

And I’m sure they didn’t want to, not use them, rather they likely got special use :skull:


#6

Those are pretty awesome to display but I’d never want to fire one.


#7

Just find an open minded Kay’s Jewelers at your local mall.


#8

Just as soon as I get that bacon street vendor license in Dubai :bacon:


#9

I saw that same episode on Netflix. Not my style and wouldn’t think to add bling to a firearm even if I had the money, but still thought it was an interesting custom.

I’d shoot it :sunglasses:

I see these on GB commonly and for more $$$


#11

Oh, don’t get me wrong. I’d shoot one, too, although I’d be afraid to get all that gold dirty and messed up. And if it were offered to me as a gift, I’d gladly take it. I just wouldn’t spend my own money on something like that. Not that I don’t foolishly spend money on other unnecessary stuff.


#12

Oh, and for those who don’t read Spanish, the inscription on the gold .38 Super bidding that Robert posted above can be translated as “God forgives, I don’t.”


#13

Probably how it got it’s name “Dios Perdona Yo No.”
if you fire it, god won’t forgive you


#14

uh,

hmmm

well

I read Colt .38 super and was sold :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#15

You surprised me. I figure for over $6k you’d want a 10mm


#16

Manchaca suppressor and rifle works gold plates a lot of guns. Cool seeing full auto gold aks being blasted


#17

Saddam had a gold AK.


#18

Nothing is to pretty to shoot lol
