HOT GAT or FUDD CRAP? Khyber Pass or I’ll Bid Last?

Welcome everyone to the 223rd edition of ‘Hot Gat or Fudd Crap?’, one of our many series here on TFB. If you’re new to the series, 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 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, by a razor-thin margin decided the Taran tactical pistol set was fudd crap.

At this time the original auction has ended without the pistols selling and sadly they have not been relisted. We can only hope at this point that they’ll be able to find their way to a new home very shortly.

In this week’s edition of HGFC, we look at an M16-themed custom Martini Henry chambered in .303 British. As is tradition, this Khyber Pass gat is currently up for sale on GunBroker for $1,251 Current Bid with No Reserve.  

Authors Note: Special thank you to all of you who forwarded this listing to me. This is the most requested item ever featured in this series.

It’s funny to think that there’s a whole region of the world that gets a pass when it comes to cobbling together firearms like this. I guess the moral of the story is, if you want to make weird guns, move to the Khyber Pass and after that, they’ll actually sell.  At the time this article was written this listing already had a whopping 38 bids.

I would say it was born out of necessity, but I think there was a perfectly good Martini-Henry before this, and now we just have this.  One could argue it’s feature-rich with the scope, but I don’t think anything else was really necessary. Just a man with a welder and too many M16 parts lying around.  Maybe there’s someone out there who’s frequented the Khyber Pass that can explain this one to me.

What do you think? Is this Kyber Pass custom Martini-Henry worth it for over ~$1k or would you rather have something you can actually safely shoot? As always, I leave it up to you, the readers, to decide.
